100% Pure Shea Butter Refined

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.

Please Note: We have recently changed the packaging for the 1kg & 5kg sizes, they are now bagged and packaged in a cardboard box rather than the plastic tub.

    I use this Shea butter for my cold process soap making. I make a lot and it can be hard to find producers selling in large amounts. The product itself is great and consistent each time ( have order 3 x 1 kg orders so far). I will continue to but this product

    I absolutely love this product - works well for me! I make my own daytime and nighttime facial moisturises and use this product in varying quantities with various essential oils combinations suited for my skin type. This product is also useful to add in small amounts to hand-made soaps for that added softening. Excellent quality!

    Love this Shea Butter - I bought the 1 kg size and never thought I would use it all. I have now bought my 2nd 1 kg tub as my friends all move my Whipped Citrus Body Butter so find I am having to make more all the time!
