100% Pure Shea Butter Refined - Certified Organic*

Shea Butter is obtained from the Shea-Karite Tree (or Shea Tree) which is native to West Africa, and has been used in African skin & hair care for generations. It is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F, and is said to offer a mild sun protection factor (approximately SPF 6). It is solid at room temperature but softens when warmed and on contact with skin.

Shea Butter is rich in fats, making it a fantastic moisturiser for dry and ageing skin, and is commonly used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and blemishes. It is also useful in helping to reduce the appearance of scars, hives, rashes, fine lines and wrinkles, whilst strengthening, protecting and regenerating the skin. Experiments show that it also possesses anti-inflammatory properties.

Shea butter can be used on its own directly on the skin, but is also commonly used in skin care products. As an industry favourite, it is used in a variety of applications ranging from Lip balms, Body masks, Creams, Lotions, Body butters, Hair care products, Liquid and Bar Soaps, Bath oils, Suncare products, Baby products, and the list goes on.

Unlike many Shea Butters that are solvent extracted, AWO's Shea Butter is cold pressed using a traditional hand extraction method. It has then been refined to remove the odour, whilst retaining its properties. It is not melted down when packaging, it is carved straight from the block, avoiding any unnecessary heating.

    Amazing Products

    Posted by K John on 1st Jul 2021

    I purchased Shea Butter Refined Certified Organic, Avocado Oil Refined, Jojoba Oil Golden, and Argan Oil Certified Organic from AWO to make my homemade shea butter body and hair cream. I am so happy with the quality of all my purchases and the end result of my homemade cream. The cream turned out so amazing. I love the quality of the oil and its package. The pump makes using the oils so much easier. My daughter loves my concoction using AWO products. I just might make more as Christmas presents. AWO made online shopping so easy and delivery was super fast. I totally did not expect delivery to come so fast. The packing was good. I am also amazed at AWO’s wide selection. Overall, I am a happy, happy customer. Well done AWO and thank you (also for the little gift in the box). Looking forward to future purchases.
