We’ve explored countless samples of “all natural unrefined” Shea Butter, and never could find one that I would put on my skin. Short shelf life, unpleasant aroma, yucky color (ranging from grey to greenish to a sickly yellow) all were turnoffs. So we kept coming back to the naturally refined highly filtered and deoderized Shea Butter we have offered for years.
Finally a friend made several trips to Ghana, working with a woman’s cooperative there, consulting with the most well respected expert on Shea Butter, Dr. Peter Lovett, PhD, and using quality control processes Dr. Lovett developed to greatly extend the shelf life of the Shea Nut Oil (Shea Butter).
The sample we received was wonderful. Creamy, softly “spreadable” at room temperature, it was a delight. Traditionally processed Shea Butter retains all of the botanical riches such as the vitamin A compounds, allantoin (found in aloe and comfrey), and circuminoids (anti-cancer compounds found in cumin), and catechins (anti-oxidant flavenoids also found in green tea). This is by far the most appealing Shea Butter we have ever experienced.
Packaged in a 4 oz jar or a 16 oz bail jar for your convenience.
ALLERGY NOTE: Those individuals with BOTH a latex allergy and a nut allergy may react to Shea Butter.
As with all of our butters, since there is no added anti-oxidant, please only purchase what you will use within the next year, and store it under cool and dark conditions.
