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.

    Shea Butter for Hives and Eczema

    Posted by Annie on 3rd Sep 2019

    I developed Eczema recently and I also have Hives, which restricts me from using cosmetics and fragrance lotions. I was recommended Shea Butter by a herbal medicine doctor and it has really helped me. I use it twice daily (bed time and morning). It does not leave any fragrance, and absorbs in the skin. I have also made a night time lotion for the pigmentation I have on my skin, I use a few drops of Vitamin E oil along with a few drops of Shea Butter and message it on my face where I have the pigmentation. I can see an improvement. I am rating it 4 star as I wanted an unrefined one, which was not available, and I have heard unrefined is better for your skin, however, unrefined shea butter has a nutty fragrance and can be a problem for some. This one is refined, but really pure and my skin feels amazing after applying it.

    I am experimenting with making my own moisturisers and still have a lot to learn. So far my efforts are reasonable and I like the product.

    I used this along with the mango butter to make my own body butter. Easy and very satisfying.
