This wondrous natural plant fat is ‘world prized’ for its ability to protect the Skin. Birthed from ancient Africa this gem from nature, when in pure form, protects the skin from the harsh UV rays of the hot African sun. This natural sun-screening dates back to the ancient Egyptian era! Shea butter is still valued today- and used in Africa as a natural sun blocker with a claimed capacity to absorb ultra violet light! Organic Shea butter has also been independently trailed by natural health conscious consumers in the treatment of sunspots- with positive reversing results!
A Little Bit of History…Pigments within the deeper layers of the epidermis contribute to skin colour. These are formed by melanin, carotene and haemoglobin. An Ancient Rule- The sacred placings of ‘who governed where’ on the placement of the earth, was of deliberate design. Meaning the ancients were ‘geographically attuned’ to suit climate temperatures. From the rich deep depths of the dark earthy tones, closer to the equator- all the way through to the lightest of pastel pink hues- traditionally found furthest from the heat centres of the earth. Each were all descendants of their ground deep history!
The rich butter content is the naturally fatty and is found within the nut of the Shea tree.
DID YOU KNOW…THERE ARE DIFFERENT *GRADES OF SHEA BUTTER ranging from ‘crude to super refined’
Like all raw materials the less processing endured, the better the quality of nutrients still exist!
It is important to note, super refined Shea butter is processed using petroleum derived hexanes!
*Hexane is toxic yet, odourless substance. This man made chemical is used to draw’, bleach’ & smooth the natural grain-like texture of the nut butter. Hexane removes the mild nutty aroma that exists within Shea fat. Pure white & odourless forms of Shea butter have more than likely endured this process and contain Less than 5% of any Nutrient Value.
Raw and unrefined butter is extracted with Water!
It has a thick butter-like texture, with variations of deep to pale yellow in the colour palette. A distinct, yet mildly nutty aroma still exists within the content.
