WHAT IS RAW SHEA BUTTER?
Shea butter comes from the nut of the African shea tree (Karite tree). In its raw form, it’s packed with vitamins A, E and F, as well as essential fatty acids that give it incredible moisturizing, healing and wrinkle-fighting properties.
Since raw shea butter melts on contact, it easily penetrates the skin and won’t clog pores or leave a greasy residue.
MORE THAN A MOISTURIZER
Raw shea butter is well known as a great moisturizer for skin and hair, but did you know it’s also clinically proven to improve skin elasticity, tone and the appearance of fine lines, leaving you looking and feeling younger?
Shea’s exceptional healing properties help with cuts, scrapes, scars, stretch marks, sunburns, eczema, rashes and insect bites, and it’s even been known to ease muscle pain and arthritis.
RAW VS. PROCESSED SHEA
Shea butter is made by crushing and grinding the shea nut to extract the butter. How it’s extracted is crucial to its effectiveness. Raw, unrefined shea butter is extracted using only water, which helps retain all of its natural vitamins and nutrients. Shea that’s extracted using chemicals is stripped of its beneficial properties in the refining process.
In its purest, most natural form, shea butter will leave you looking and feeling smoother, softer and healthier from head to toe.
