Our organic un-refined RAW Shea Butter comes from Ghana, Western Africa. The Karite Tree is known there as the ‘tree of life’. Grown in the dry Savannah belt of West Africa, the Shea butter is traditionally extracted by hand by the woman of the village from the seeds of the tree which is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection of SPF6 and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and nutrients which are necessary for collagen production. When combined with Palm oil, Shea butter can be eaten and serves as an edible for many households in Sahel.
Shea butter is the skins best friend. 100% pure and natural. A natural source of Vitamin-A for the skin which is important in improving a number of skin conditions. The moisturizers in Shea butter are the same moisturizers produced by the skins sebaceous glands. Vitamin-E increases the micro-circulation in the skin which results in increased blood supply to and from the skin and also serving as an anti-free radical agent. The studies also showed that Shea butter contains a significant source of anti-tumor promoting compounds such as cinnamate esters, which also make up the health benefits of cinnamon.
