What is shea butter?
Shea butter is a natural vegetable oil obtained from the seeds of the African Vitellaria Paradoxa tree. Shea butter is extremely rich in unsaturated fatty acids, exceeding those included in e.g. cocoa butter. Refined to get rid of the specific smell. The butter is white or slightly yellowish in color and has a slightly grainy consistency. In African countries it is often used for frying. They are also used as a substitute for cocoa butter.

How does shea butter work on our skin and what properties does it have?
The most important component of Shea butter are unsaturated fatty acids (oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic), crucial for moisturizing our skin. Also valued for the lack of allergenic properties. It can be used for any type of skin.
How to use shea butter?
Immediately before use, shea butter should be warmed and softened in the hands, and then applied to selected parts of the body or hair. 1 - 2 tablespoons of butter can be added to the bath, thanks to which a delicate protective layer will remain on the skin.
When using shea butter on hair, it is recommended to massage it into the scalp for about 10-30 minutes before washing it. Wrap your head with a towel. After this time, wash off with a delicate shampoo. After such treatment, our hair will become shiny and moisturized.
Shea butter can also be used as a natural balm or lip scrub. All you have to do is dissolve a small amount of it and add a little sugar (cane, coconut or plain white). Such a mixture will nourish the skin of our lips, moisturize and smooth them.
Shea butter should be stored at room temperature. Avoid excessively hot places.
