Skin & Body
Shea Butter is a slightly yellow oil/butter extracted from the seed of the African karite tree (Butyrospernum parkii), which grows wild on the savannahs of West and Central Africa. Sunfood Nutrition's shea butter is raw, cold-processed, unfiltered and unrefined so it retains all of its inherent beneficial properties.
Unrefined Shea Butter contains natural tocopherols (vitamin E), cinnamic esters and unsaponifiable fats. It offers unparalleled moisturizing properties, as well as natural UV protection and protection against sun allergies. Shea Butter has a long history of successful application in alleviating and dramatically improving numerous conditions of the skin, including itching, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, soreness, wounds, burns, scarring and stretch marks.
The indigenous peoples of Central Africa as well as the Japanese have long used Shea Butter for both food as well as body care. Shea Butter is even used as a replacement for regular dairy butter in foods. It is a perfect replacement for dairy butter in vegetarian cooking.
Ingredients: raw, unrefined, ethically traded shea butter
Q: Most shea butter is processed at very high temperatures. How do you create a butter without using 180-200 degree heat?
A: The water is boiled around it but the butter and oil itself is not. The water evaporates and has a lower boiling point than the oil does.
