Unrefined Shea butter: Butyrospermum Parkii.
This shea or karite butter is unrefined and is produced in the north of Ghana, West Africa by a social enterprise group of local people who gather the nuts which grow wild on the Karite tree. The butter is then processed and the result is the most fantastic 'natural' shea butter. Try it and feel the difference.
Shea butter is extremely moisturising, and is very useful for very dry skin. This butter melts at skin temperature, which makes it so versatile and so useable in most body creams, balms, massage bars and soaps.
Shea butter is almost completely unsaponifiable which makes it a fabulous addition to cold process soap. The addition of around 10% makes a stable, conditioning, silky bar of soap, although it does appear to accelerate trace considerably.
