Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A and E as well as essential fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin, and is a wonderful product for revitalizing damaged skin. Our Shea Butter Crude is in its raw state and has not been processed or refined.

Commonly used in lotions, creams, balms and soaps due to its smooth, satiny finish. Shea Butter has a strong nutty aroma and can often change the scent of body care products. We recommend using essential oils to cover up this scent. Please note that this butter is hard and will need to be slowly and gently heated to use.
