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.

I was given the Shea butter as a present and it's the best moisturiser I've used - way more effective than the products I've used before. Even after a sea and sand holiday my legs are still feeling soft and the skin hydrated.
After using shea butter for several weeks my skin feels much softer and smoother. I can thoroughly recommend this product and it lasts for ages.
Excellent moisturiser, much more effective than branded moisturisers and you don't need to use as much, or apply it as often. I've used it in its raw form and in recipes for body lotions and face scrubs which I've given as gifts. I haven't worked out a recipe that allows me to scent the lotions so that you can't smell the Shea butter itself (not an unpleasant smell before this puts you off, and odourless once applied), but I'm working on that! So far I've only tried rose and orange blossom which are both very gentle scents, so that is very likely the reason. Would love to hear anyone's recommendations for other options....
