Shea ButterShea 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 therapeutic 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.
Shea Butter (Refined): Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Refined.
Packaging: The 4 oz and 8 oz Shea Butter is packaged in a white plastic double-wall container with a tight sealing, plastic screw on lid with poly liner, and the 1 lb size is packaged in polyfoil bags with a re-sealable zipper closure, protecting the contents from light exposure and moisture.
Directions: To Prepare Butters: Melt in a double boiler and combine them with a liquid carrier oil; pour into a container and allow to solidify at room temperature. This process will make the butter a softer consistency and will apply easier to the skin.
I've tried to find unrefined shea butter, but have not found a reliable source--all I've tried have had a slight to pronounced rancid aroma
