What is Shea Butter?

WHAT IS SHEA BUTTER?
.
We use certified organic shea butter in a lot of our formulations including lip butters, hand salve, and our signature hand creams.
.
.
Shea butter is beautifully soft and nourishing and it has been extracted from the Shea Nut which is harvested in West Africa. It is packed with skin-loving nutrients and is rich in antioxidants. Shea butter melts into the skin and is known to hydrate and protect dry skin.
.
Shea is a densely-branched tree with regular, shiny green leaves and fruits that resemble large plums, with the shea nut at the center.
.
The history of shea butter as an invaluable skin care product dates back to Ancient Egypt. Queen Cleopatra always kept jars of pure, unrefined shea butter on hand. She knew the finest skincare secret then and we are proud to be using it today in our handmade products.
.
Shea Butter can be found in:
Peppermint Foot Cream (and all of our foot creams)
Nighttime Hand Cream (and all of our hand creams)
