Nuts from the Shea-Karite tree

Everyone has heard many products claim to “contain shea butter” but few people know of its origins and uses. Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree. The Shea Tree grows up to 60 feet and can live up to 300 years. It begins to bear fruit after about 15 years; and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts with a high content of irremovable fatty acid. It is this irremovable fatty acid that gives shea butter its unique healing properties and makes it far superior to cocoa butter and other vegetable butters.

It nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F which maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. Shea butter can provide relief for everything from dry skin to many minor dermatological diseases such as: sunburn, eczema, small skin wounds, softening tough skin on feet, stretch mark prevention during (& post-) pregnancy, and reducing blemishes and scarring. Shea butter is also anti-inflammatory, making it useful in relieving arthritic discomfort & sports injuries.

For men: Shea butter provides unparalleled relief from the discomfort of razor bumps and small scars.

For women: This is an all-purpose item for your hair and skin (including stretch mark and blemish relief!)

For babies: Shea butter helps relieve the discomfort of eczema and diaper rash.
