Shea Oil

Shea Oil

A by-product of Shea Nut Butter, obtained from the nut of the Karite tree. Shea Nut Oil, botanical name Butyrospermum parkii, is produced by lightly heating Shea Nut Butter to separate the fractionated and non-fractionated make up of the material. The fractionated material is refined resulting in a transparent, bland Shea Nut Oil with a pale yellow appearance. Shea Nut Oil is an ideal ingredient used throughout the cosmetic industry in the manufacturing of skin creams, lotions, and make-up. Its physical properties allow it to easily absorb into the skin promoting skin elasticity and will not leave an oily or greasy residue typical of many oils. Shea Nut Oil is a great natural emollient and can be used to treat dry skin and hair. A number of companies are using Shea Nut Oil in the production baby care products as well. It contains a high level of Vitamins A, E, and F and Oleic Fatty Acid. Shea Nut Oil may help with skin irritations and is especially favorable for Massage Therapists in hot oil treatments.
