Description

Shea butter is obtained from the seeds of the Karite tree (Butyrospermum parkii) common in several African countries. This soft, pliant 'butter' is pressed from the certified organic seeds and then purified for use used for soaps, cosmetics and toiletries. 
This product has been ethically produced and sustainably refined to yield a white and practically odourless butter, ideal for cosmetic use.

We are now proud to offer our refined organic Shea Butter as certified fair for life.

Gorgeous and healing butter for eczema and flare ups!

This is a lovely Shea butter you can apply directly or your skin or make your own, silky - whipped body butter. I made my own healing face and body butter carefully designed to moisturise and heal skin barrier and calm sensitive skin. It’s a great antibacterial, anti inflammatory and healing balm + anti wrinkle twinkle! ;) It is really a magical butter for dry and problematic skin! Quick delivery and lovely company to buy from.

However refined butter is whiter and lovely, I do prefer organic, unrefined Shea butter as anything unrefined is better for the skin. I love mixing it with jojoba and/or borage oil. Truly a fantastic - healing and moisturising butter for the whole body!

Shea Butter

Shea butter is always a must in my soap, Kawakawa balm, lip balm and more! Has that nice finish and feels great on the skin. Just bought more again.
