Organic Shea Butter
Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), also called African Karité butter. Coconut Clean’s natural shea butter is expressed from the pits of the fruit of the African butter tree and has a unique aroma. It is smooth, creamy and off-white or light beige in color. It is cold expeller pressed, naturally cleaned and extracted without the use of solvents. Coconut Clean’s shea butter is shipped directly from Africa in a calabash (gourd). When we receive the calabash of shea butter, we filter it through a screen to remove the plant fibers before adding it to our products.
Shea butter is extremely moisturizing and gentle to the skin. We use it to super-fat our Bar Soaps; it creates a very luxurious feel to the finished product! We also use it in our Sea Salt Scrubs, Skin Soothers, Healing balm and Lip Smoothies.
Shea butter is high in Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Shea Butter is important for improving a number of skins conditions, including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. It reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores skin flexibility. It has its own sunblock properties and serves as an anti-free radical agent by aiding in preventing the deleterious effects of sun and environmental exposure.
