Our Shea Butter has been refined to remove impurities, as this generally makes it better tolerated by those with sensitive skins. Unrefined means that it can contain impurities that may cause reactions for some with sensitive skin. It is an ivory white coloured fat extracted from the fruit of the shea tree, which is a slow growing evergreen tree native to Africa.
It can be a beneficial addition in a range of skin and body care products including
– creams and lotions, especially for dry skin
– hair products
