The Shea fruit tree grows about 20 meters high and only grows wild on the West African savannahs. For thousands of years the seeds have been crushed into an extremely nutritious nut fat or butter full of vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique composition of essential fatty acids.
Unrefined Shea butter has the greatest number of healing and moisturizing properties as well as the high percentage of active ingredients of all butters and oils.
Shea butter is particularly caring for skin and hair and is anti-inflammatory, promotes the healing process, softens, moisturizes, promotes cell renewal and elasticity, protects against UV radiation and is beneficial for dry, chapped and irritated skin, itching, sunburn, eczema, skin allergy, insect bites, small skin wounds, and it reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
This 100% organic Shea butter is obtained by cold pressing (mechanical pressing) of the nuts and still possesses all the nutrients and properties.
