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 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 Shea Butter as certified fair for life.

Fantastic

This Shea butter is easy to work with, I like to melt before use so my body butters are not grainy great main ingredient for my body butters.

Rich, soft, and creamy

Love that this is Fair Trade. Excellent butter for very dry skin. I use it in a moisturising body polish, in lip balms, and in a triple butter body butter. Bought on 17 May 2024, expiry date of May 2026.
