While many commercial cosmetics incorporate a bit of processed Shea Butter into their product (diluting and negating its unique therapeutic properties with a plethora of chemicals), more and more people are choosing to eliminate the middle man (and the caustic chemicals) by using pure, unrefined raw Shea Butter. They’re learning what Cleopatra knew millennia ago: It’s phenomenal for healing and moisturizing skin.
Shea trees are found mostly found Africa. Traditionally, Shea nuts picked, roasted, and pounded, then boiled for several hours to extract the pure Shea Butter.
Nkuto Organics offers an exceptional line of sustainably made, 100% pure, unbleached, unrefined Shea Butter. Eschewing artificial chemicals, their ingredient list is amazingly simple: Unrefined Shea Butter is gently blended with organic olive oil to make a soft body whip, and Vitamin E is added as a natural preservative. If you choose, essential oils are blended in, for a clean, natural fragrance. Scents include: lavender, vanilla bean, jasmine vanilla, lavender patchouli, sandalwood coconut, sandalwood, patchouli, lemon verbena, spearmint eucalyptus, may chang (citrus), marine oak (bladderwrack), or unscented.
