Shea butter: Butyrospermum Parkii.
Shea or karite butter is pressed from the seeds of the Karite tree native to West Africa.
This butter is deodorised and filtered, leaving an off white, odourless butter perfect for use in bath and body products. 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.
Can use up to: 5% in lotions and creams, 100% in balms. 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.
