Shea Butter is rich in Vitamins A and E (Vitamin A supports healthy skin and boosts cell growth; whilst Vitamin E is an antioxidant). It is is a skin super-food that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii), making it Vegan friendly and 100% natural. It provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea Butter is extremely moisturising and nourishing and has been used in Africa and other countries around the world for millennia to protect the skin and hair from the sun and dehydration as well as heal many skin problems. Our Shea Butter is unrefined grade A, meaning that the beneficial natural properties and nutrients are still preserved. Our Unrefined Shea Butter comes in 500g pots; and has a expiry period of 2 years once opened. In its raw state Shea Butter has a characteristic nutty aroma and is often added to to creams, oils and lotions to make a variety of natural homemade cosmetics.
