This wonderful gift of nature comes from the Karite tree grown in Africa, and is widely used in cosmetics for its moisturizing properties. Shea butter is milder and creamier than cocoa or mango. It absorbs rapidly into the skin. Our Organic Shea Butter is 100% pure and unrefined.

INCI: Butyrospermum parkii

Properties: natural moisturizer, anti-inflammatory, promotes skin healing and improves your skin's elasticity

Contains: traces of Oleic, Stearic, Linoleic, Palmitic essential fatty acids.

Application: use shea butter as-is by melting a small amount in your hand and massaging over the skin, or melt it on the stove top and add to your favorite vegetable oil to create your own skin care preparation.  Blended with Apricot Kernel Oil, Shea butter makes an excellent balm, keeping the skin elastic to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy.

Precautions: while this is a nut butter, it contains little to no protein which is the common trigger for allergies in nuts. This butter is considered safe, but those who are concerned should use our Cocoa Butter as an alternative.

Love This Shea ButterThe very first time I used this I noticed the difference in my roscea. I have tried dozens of products to help with my roscea but everything seemed to break me out, so I had not much hope for the Shea Butter but the very first time it took the redness from my face what a surprise!!! I also use it as a body lotion, it absorbs quickly and it not heavy feeling on your face. I love that it is organic and that I am supporting a Canadian business. Love, love this amazing shea butter, thanks to Awaken My Senses!!!! Written by Catherine Mary Flavin on Mon 4 Apr 2016 2:52:14 PM GMT
Best Shea Butter I Have Ever Used!This shea butter is the best one I have ever used. It actually makes my skin feel like it is coming alive. I noticed an immediate difference the first time I used it, after having tried other shea butters by other companies, none of which even came close to the results I have had with this one from Awaken My Senses. The name is truly a testament to how this product feels. I have been faithful to this one ever since trying it and have been using it since 2011. I use it for skin care, body care, and hair care. I am so grateful to this company for putting out such wonderful, organic products. Thank you so much Awaken My Senses! Written by Shannon Smith on Tue 21 Jan 2014 6:34:47 PM GMT
