Shea oil is extracted when the shea nuts are processed to make shea butter the traditional way. Our refined shea butter oil has the exact same benefits as shea butter but is more suitable in facial and body moisturising porducts as well as around the eye. Shea oil spreads more easily than solid shea butter and may therefore be preferable for skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Pure shea (butter) oil is a rich and emollient moisturizer that is beneficial for very dry and baby skin. A versatile oil that can be used as a cleanser, face and body oil, massage oil and as a carrier oil for your essential oil blends. High in vitamins A, E and F and Keratin, Allantoin, Stearic and Oleic and non saponifiable fatty acids and said to have some kind of sun protection factor, it leaves your skin supple and well cared for.
Please note: the 250 ml option comes in a brown PET bottle with flip top dispenser.
