Shea Butter-Butyrospermum parkii

Posted on Monday 21 April 2008

Also known as Karite Butter or African Butter, Shea Butter is sourced directly from West Africa where it has been used for beauty and healing. Shea Butter is soft enough that you can scoop it straight out of the container and onto your skin or into your bath, the warmth of the water softens the butter further to make a creamy moisturising treat that will easily massage into your skin.
Excellent for dry elbows, heels and hands, simply rub a small amount (¼ teaspoon) of Shea Butter into your skin for instant softening and relief. Add 1 teaspoon to a foot bath and massage into your feet, and they will be ready for sandals in an instant! For extremely dry skin add 1 tablespoon of butter to your bath, relax in the warm water and be amazed at the results of your smooth soft skin in a matter of minutes!
Shea Butter has been used in creams and lotions for wrinkles, dry skin, sunburn, irritated skin, chapped skin and even the most sensitive skin as a moisturiser and to help protect the skin from the elements.Make sure you store your Shea Butter in a cool dark place, as it will melt at a low temperature.
