What is Shea butter

Shea butter is the fat extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It’s solid at warm temperatures and has an off-white or ivory color. Shea trees are native to West Africa.

Shea butter is technically a tree nut product. But unlike most tree nut products, it’s very low in the proteins that can trigger allergies.
There’s no medical literature documenting an allergy to topical shea butter.

Where do all the Shea butter benefits come from?

​The benefits of shea butter come from its chemical makeup. Shea butter contains:

  • linoleic, palmitic, stearic, and oleic fatty acids, ingredients that balance oils on your skin

  • Vitamins A, E, and F, antioxidant vitamins that promote circulation and healthy skin cell growth

  • Triglycerides, the fatty part of the shea nut that nourishes and conditions your skin

  • Cetyl esters, the waxy part of the shea nut butter that conditions skin and locks in moisture

We used raw and unrefined grade A from fair trade. 

Shea butter is classified by a grading system from A to F, with grade A being the purest form of shea butter you can buy. The more that shea butter is processed, the more its amazing, all-natural properties get diluted.
