Shea Butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) or Savannah tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. The tree and grows naturally in Nigeria and other West Africa countries. It produces a fruit, similar to a plum, which contains a nut. The nut is dried and the kernel inside is then removed. The kernel is ground up to obtain Shea Butter, which has softening, nourishing and moisturizing benefits. It offers UV protection (it is SPF ~6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea Butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair. It protects against the sun’s rays, it is an anti-oxidant (vitamin E) and has regenerating and restructuring properties.
Shea Butter is referred to as “Women’s Gold” because of its amazing skin care properties. Local African women process the Shea Butter using a cold process technique. It is a valuable source of income for many African Women. Shea Butter can vary in texture as it is produced by crushing nuts from the Shea tree rather than by extraction using solvents.
It is simply used by melting a small amount of Shea Butter in the palm of your hand and massaging gently onto the face, hands and body.

So just scrape it out of the container with your finger, put it into the palm of your hands and rub your hands together. The heat from your hands will cause the Shea Butter to melt and then just apply it to your body and/or hair/scalp.
