Shea Butter is derived from the Shea Nut (Butyrospermum parkii) of the karite nut trees in West Africa. It is physically extracted by boiling the nuts, and as the fat/oil rises, it is manually scooped off. It is bleached and deodorized, thus having an mild to nonexistent odor. It is a nonchemical process using natural clays and does not harm the material in any way. While Shea Butter has a wide variety of applications, it is most well known for its exceptional dermatological and cosmetic healing properties, and a highly effective emollient.

What makes Shea butter an extraordinary skin care product is its richness in precious constituents, which include unsaturated fats with a large proportion of "unsaponifiables" components, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamins and allantoin-all which are natural and make Shea Butter a superfood for both skin and hair.

Starwest Botanicals offers both Conventional and Organic Refined Shea Butters.

This shea butter is really good at locking in moisture! After shampooing, conditioning, and moisturizing my hair, I apply some of this shea butter onto my hair and massage it in. It has a mild consistency- not too heavy and not too light. I love how it doesn't smell too ashy because I have tried some shea butters before that tend to have a smell similar to ash. The butter made my hair very soft, and made my hair feel moisturized and VERY hydrated. Looking at the ingredient list, there is only one ingredient which is all natural shea butter, with no other ingredient! Also, this makes a great sealer. Like sealing your ends after braiding your hair, or the edges around your hair, is they tend to stick out, or baby hair or flyaways. This product is the one for you if you have dry hair that needs moisture!
