Shea butter, which is also known as Karite butter, is produced from the Shea tree which grows wild in the savannah regions of West Africa. Traditionally, it has been used by West Africans for treatment of skin and scalp ailments.
Shea butter has a high content of non-saponifiable fatty acids which make it an excellent moisturizer and skin conditioner. Shea butter has skin moisturizing and skin conditioning benefits. It can also be used on the hair for lubrication and to seal in moisture.
At Natural Nigerian™, we love Shea Butter and almost all our products from Conditioners to Pomades are made with oodles of Shea Butter.
We are careful to source our Shea Butter from socially conscious enterprises, such as women co-operatives where the gatherers and processors of this butter are adequately compensated for their work.
