What is Shea Butter?

Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) is a natural fat extracted from the nuts of the Shea Tree. The nuts are harvested, processed and crushed to extract the butter which is then refined to ensure it is the highest quality.


It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing, healing, and protective properties. It is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E, and F, and various antioxidants that promote overall hair and skin health.

Vitamin A & E

Vitamin A and E are naturally occurring in Shea Butter and are beneficial in numerous ways. Both are powerful antioxidants that help to regenerate and hydrate your skin. They also work as an anti-inflammatory to soothe your scalp, add shine and reduce frizz.
