Some wonder what the difference between this and Ivory Shea Butter is. Well here is the answer, Unrefined Yellow Shea Butter gets its color from the African Borututu Tree. It’s revered for its healing abilities. The Ghanaian women add it in during the milling process to give the Shea Butter extra nutrients. This tree has a vibrant yellow/orange color in its branches and roots and this is what gives the yellow shea butter its color. If you would like more details on this please see our in depth article here.
Yellow shea butter is commonly preferred by people with tough skin conditions such as dry, cracked skin and itchy red patches. The reason for this is because it has added nutrients and it takes longer to absorb into your skin which creates a better moisturizing effect.
Yellow Shea Butter is a bit harder than the Ivory Shea Butter. It can also give a light glow or tan look when used on fair skin.

Drop a pea-size dollop of shea butter in your hands and rub together to melt, and then apply directly to the skin. If you whip it into one of our luscious body butter recipes, apply much as you would any other cream. We recommend you use a wooden or plastic spatula or spoon to dip into your lotion or cream container.
