Botanical Name: Butyrospermum parkii
Description: This RBD Shea Butter is extracted from the Shea nut which comes from the Karite tree. After refinement it has a whitish color and almost no odor, but the applications remain the same. Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is hailed for its protecting and emollient properties. It can also be used as a massage butter, as a moisturizing agent in soaps and shaving creams, and as a treatment for minor skin irritations.
The first choice in natural skin care and fine body care products, this butter forms a breathable, water-resistant film and is the leading natural product for moisturising. A wonderful base for cosmetic recipes or used as a stand alone application. It comes highly recommended for those concerned about naturally healthy skin.
Recommended Usage: It is oil soluble (not water soluble) and is usually incorporated via the oil phase when preparing emulsions. It has no known incompatibilities.
Refining Process: The methods used to refine Shea Butter are all natural and involve no additional chemicals. The nuts are ground to expel the oil and butters. That fatty product is then heated to 80-90C under high pressure to remove any impurities. The mix is then filtered through cloth. The cleaned bulk butter is then passed through a carbon/ clay filter to take out the colour before undergoing high temperature (200C) vaccum distillation to remove the remaining high melting point fatty acids and odour.
