About This Product

Shea Butter Refined

Shea Butter Refined is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree and is widely used in skincare and cosmetic products. It is a popular ingredient due to its emollient properties. Its refined form eliminates the characteristic nutty scent and enhances its texture, making it more appropriate for cosmetic applications.

In addition to its versatility in skin care, shea butter can also help reduce frizz and enhance shine in hair care.

Shea Butter Refined has many excellent properties. It is highly moisturizing and provides deep hydration to the skin. It contains fatty acids like oleic and stearic acids, which make it an excellent emollient. This means that it can soften and smoothen the skin.

Since it is non-comedogenic, it is suitable for different skin types and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance. Shea Butter Refined is also rich in vitamins A and E, which offer antioxidant protection. This helps combat free radicals and signs of aging, making it an excellent natural skincare ingredient.
