Shea butter is a 100% natural multi-purpose vitamin A & E cream which originates from the fruit of the Shea Tree. The butter contains exceptional moisturizing properties for both skin and hair. This is Unrefined Shea Butter and is yellow, from Ghana. Whether the color of shea butter is white, ivory or yellow....it makes no difference in the quality of the butter nor in how it may be used. This butter has a light, pleasant aroma. It is not the deep burnt aroma found in some yellow shea butters. Shea is extremely moisturizing and gentle to the skin. In soaps, it gives a very luxurious feel to the finished product. It can also be added to creams and lotions or used alone for massage, skin cream, applied directly on small skin burns or applied to hair. Shea butter is not hard and crumbly like cocoa butter.
