What is Vitellaria - Known scientifically as Vitellaria paradoxa and previously as Butyrospermum parkii, Shea Butter is derived from the nuts of the karité tree, predominantly found in the Sahel region stretching from West to East Africa.

Usage Benefits: Shea Butter is a treasure trove of vitamins, particularly vitamin E, and is filled with essential fatty acids that provide intense hydration and nourishment to both skin and hair. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it perfect for soothing irritated skin, while its rich emollient qualities improve skin and hair suppleness, making it a pivotal ingredient in our Multi-Use Pure Oil Blend.

Other Benefits: Beyond its moisturizing capabilities, Shea Butter is known for its antioxidant content, which includes compounds such as catechins. These antioxidants help protect the skin from environmental damage and free radical assaults, reinforcing the skin's barrier function and enhancing its overall health and resilience.
