Frequently Asked Questions

What is Shea?

Shea, is actually an oil that is extracted from the nut of the Shea tree (also known as Karite). It is commonly called butter because some people with nut or latex allergies can be sensitive to it. So calling it butter help notify consumers that it has nut-like properties, much like Almond or Peanut Butter.


What is Shea Butter used for?

EVERYTHING! Shea Butter is known worldwide for it's miraculous healing potentials. Shea Butter fights wrinkles, reduces scars and stretch marks, relieves eczema, chapped lips, sore muscles, open wounds, sun burns and much more. 

Is all Shea Butter the same?
