African Shea butter is a natural paste extracted from the nut (fruit) of the African Shea tree found mainly in Western Africa. It contains a rich amount of irremovable fatty acid which renders it far superior to Cocoa Butter and other natural vegetable butters. This fatty acid is crucial to rejuvenating and moisturizing the skin. Shea butter provides all essential vitamins needed to make the skin look and feel smoother, softer and most importantly healthier. Its therapeutic properties protect the skin from wind, coldmsun and it helps heal wounds faster. Shea butter stimulates cellular activity, fights the effects of aging and repairs rough, damaged skin. When pure and unrefined, it has a yellowish texture and gives out a nutty fragrance. Shea butter is most extensively used all over the world for its proven moisturizing and healing properties. In order to get the most benefit it is best to use it unrefined as it loses some of its key healing properties during the refining process.

I purchased this product for the first time about a year ago because I had an uneven skin tone and scars from acne. i red how unrefined shea butter could help even my skin out and get rid of the scars I'd accumulated over the years. I was a bit skeptical but decided to try it anyway. Well after a steady regiment of applying the shea butter mornings before work and at night before i went to bed I saw a significant difference of my spots fading and my skin evening out. It took about a month to see a significant difference and i always get compliments on how beautiful my skin is. My daughter also uses it for her ezcema, it does a wonderful job of mousterizing her skin without any type of irritation. I'm a true fan and will continue to shop with this company!
Doesn't smell.. great quality. And it does will on everything from head to toe. I will always order this. I am allergic to everything but this works great for me.
The shea butter seems to be very high quality. 32 Oz. for $10.00 is an awesome deal. I will order again but this container will last me a while (:
