An incredibly versatile and highly valuable skin care product, which has long been called African gold because shea butter is a gift of nature for medicine, food and cosmetics for people in Africa. This is the reason why Africans consider shea butter a sacred tree: it cannot be cut and only women can touch ripe nuts. Shea butter is extracted from African shea nuts, in a traditional way, by hand. The unrefined oil is yellowish in color, with a specific slightly pungent nut aroma and firm consistency. It is rich in fatty acids, vitamins A and E, linolenic acid, which help to retain moisture in the superficial layers of the skin, and phytosterols, which protect the skin from environmental factors, activate blood circulation and reduce inflammation. Shea butter is ideal nourishing and soothing agent for all skin types, especially dry, sensitive, inflamed skin. Suitable for the whole family, even for the most sensitive skin of babies and children. Completely safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
