Buy Natural Unrefined Organic African Shea Butter in a 4 oz. jar. Super Premium Shea Butter (Fair Trade) with pure grade Lavender Essential Oil.
Shea Butter is a hard butter. To apply hard shea butter, rub fingers in circular motions inside the jar to 'warm' up the butter and then apply to skin. If you prefer a softer creamier texture, please order the whipped shea butter.
Organic, unrefined Shea Butter differs dramatically from the hexane solvent refined product commonly sold throughout the United States and Europe. Solvent refining strips the shea butter of it's natural vitamins and healing properties. Carotene and alantoin are just two of the healing factors found in natural shea butter (and missing from solvent refined mass market products). Only properly made, raw shea butter is suitable for proper use as a hydrolyzing skin treatment.
Many companies use bleaches, deodorizers, or chemicals to alter the scent and appearance of Shea Butter. It is important to not purchase Shea Butter that has been altered in this way, as these processing methods deplete the product of its healing and medicinal properties, and also destroy the vitamins and minerals naturally present in Shea Butter. Unrefined Shea Butter has a natural nutty smell. Allantoin: soothing, anti-irritant, skin protectant that increases the water content of the extracellular matrix which provides structural support to cells and is an important part of connective tissue. Allantoin also increases the smoothness of the skin; promotes cell replication; and promotes the healing of wounds, burns, and scars. Carotene: Enhance the appearance of the skin, antioxidant, used to prevent the signs of aging in the skin, healing.
Just below the Great Sahara Desert lies a broad swath of the African Savannah lands. Outside of the rainy season, this is one of the harshest, driest, dustiest places on earth. Brutal sun, wind, and the Hamatan dust take a terrible toll to exposed skin. The Savannahs of Africa are harsh and dry. Water is scarce, and there is only one rainy growing season. Villagers who used shea butter as a daily skin application had smooth, wrinkle free skin well into their 70's. Those who did not, well, it was very obvious. Based on what we saw in two countries, villagers who use raw, wild crafted shea butter on their skin every day looked 20 years younger than their counterparts who did not. They also had fewer skin fungus infections and the scaly "dermatose", so common in that part of the world.
Daily application of organic unrefined Shea Butter has been reported to speed the healing of psoriasis and other skin conditions. Useful for burns, all dry and irritated skin conditions (except for Poison Ivy, Oak etc., which contain irritating oils that need to be removed with something like Tea Tree Castile Liquid Soap).
Recommended for wrinkle smoothing and prevention, and for the treatment of sun damaged skin. We recommend applying shea butter at night, so it has time to soak into the skin.
Please remember that rare individuals with both a Type B Latex allergy and a Nut allergy can react to shea butter. Shea Butter does come from a nut.
