You can find shea butter growing in many countries in Africa, and is used as an everyday moisturizer from hair to feet. Shea butter is the fat from the African shea tree, Vitellaria paradoxa. It flourishes in the western savannas of Senegal to Sudan in the east, then stretches to the Ethiopian foothills. Shea butter is often used in cooking, but does have a notably different taste to those with a western palate.
We appreciate shea butter for its natural SPF (between 15 and 20), its quick absorbency, and that it will not clog your pores even after prolonged use. This shea butter comes in a 2 oz plastic tub, unfiltered and unrefined. Sediment might be present.
