We love shea butter!
Extracted from the fruit of the African shea tree, Butyrosperum parkii syn. Vitellaria paradoxa, this emollient is a giant among skin moisturizers. It is easily absorbed and rich in antioxidants. We use both refined and unrefined shea butter.
Good for All Skin Types
Besides having a long list of skin-healthy benefits, we were surprised to learn that it is non-comedogenic, that is, it does not clog pores.
There are no documented cases of topical shea butter allergies. Even people with tree nut allergies should be able to use shea butter on their skin. That's according to many sources.
