Shea Butter is extracted from the shea nut and then fully refined to result in white or creamy shea nut butter with a mild to missing odour. Shea nut butter is comprised of fatty acids such as oleic, stearic, linoleic and palmitic. With a melting point ranging from 89-113 degrees Fahrenheit, shea nut butter is solid at room temperature.
We believe in ‘Adding Value at Source’. This means we aim to make the finished product where the fruit is grown. By doing this we return more value to the communities that produce our fruit.
Traditionally shea butters have been used throughout Africa in cooking and medicinal applications. Today the primary use of shea nut butter outside of Africa is in the cosmetic industry. The unique fatty acid profile coupled with the butter’s high level of non-saponifiable makes it a highly effective emollient.
