For a moisturizer that nourishes and protects your skin like no other, make 100% Certified Organic East African Shea Butter part of your daily skin care regimen. Shea butter has been treasured as one of the world's premier topical protectors for thousands of years, when the ancient Egyptians used it to safeguard their skin and hair against the blazing sun and hot, dry winds of the desert. The legendary Egyptian queen Cleopatra, world-renowned for her exquisite beauty, is said to have relied on shea butter to protect her complexion in the harsh desert climate. Shea butter's popularity endures to this day, where it is used widely as an ingredient in hair conditioners, skin care creams and moisturizers.
What makes shea butter so exceptionally effective is its outstanding fatty acid profile, which consists of roughly 40 to 60% oleic acid, along with a generous amount of stearic acid and smaller amounts of palmitic and linolenic acids. This unique combination of fatty acids absorbs rapidly into the skin where its water-binding properties help lock in moisture and protect against the elements even in the harshest of conditions. Plus, shea butter contains phenolic compounds with powerful antioxidant properties, which protect the skin against free-radicals to maintain youthful radiance.
Our 100% Certified Organic East African Shea Butter is unrefined with no artificial additives or solvents—nothing but soothing, nourishing protection for your skin.
