Shea butter is extracted from the shea nut grown on the karite tree known as the "tree of life". 4kg of nuts yield 1kg of butter which contains vitamins A,B,E iron & calcium and has enormous healing properties thus rewarding its name! Shea butter is particularly helpful for any skin disorder such as dermatitis, excema, dry, peeling skin, any form of burns, itchy skin, insect bites, ageing and any form of rash. It is also excellent for massage and for the scalp and hair. It has been observed deep in the heart of Africa that the women maintained an amazingly youthful appearance due to the lifelong use of Karite. This product is 100% pure, maintaining all of its healing properties and therefore has a strong natural smell.
