Shea Butter is obtained from the Shea-Karite Tree (or Shea Tree) which is native to West Africa, and has been used in African skin & hair care for generations. It is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F, and is said to offer a mild sun protection factor (approximately SPF 6). It is solid at room temperature but softens when warmed and on contact with skin.
Shea Butter is rich in fats, making it a fantastic moisturiser for dry and ageing skin, and is commonly used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and blemishes. It is also useful in helping to reduce the appearance of scars, hives, rashes, fine lines and wrinkles, whilst strengthening, protecting and regenerating the skin. Experiments show that it also possesses anti-inflammatory properties.
Shea butter can be used on its own directly on the skin, but is also commonly used in skin care products. As an industry favourite, it is used in a variety of applications ranging from Lip balms, Body masks, Creams, Lotions, Body butters, Hair care products, Liquid and Bar Soaps, Bath oils, Suncare products, Baby products, and the list goes on.
Our Shea Butter has been refined to remove the odour but its properties are still the same. It has a melting point between 30-35 degree Celcius and comes packaged in an amber RPET plastic jar which retails for around $5 seperately, and can be re-purposed as your final product jar, simply remove the label once you have removed the shea butter, and fill with your homemade cream or balm. Apply a neew personalised label to make it super fancy. (Please note that the 900g size jar is packaged in a HDPE white jar due to the required size).
