Karite-One 100% Shea Butter
100% Pure Shea Butter 2oz and 4 oz
Shea Butter is an excellent emollient for both skin and hair care applications. Shea Butter is extracted from the fruit of the Shea Butter Tree (Butyrospermum Parkii) and the resulting oil is refined by a mechanical process. This process goes through several steps in order to improve flavor, color and oxidative stability. Shea Butter consists mainly of oleic and stearic acid triglycerides and a large fraction of unsaponifiables (12%) rich in phytosterol esters.
For sensitive, dry and aging skin Shea Butter has gained considerable interest because of its unique characteristics. Shea Butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E & F which are essential for good skin balance. Shea Butter can act as an anti-inflammatory and helps prevent irritation from sunburns, tiny cuts and scrapes. Because of shea butter healing properties it is beneficial in cell regeneration and capillary circulation.
The melting point of Shea Butter is close to body temperature and it is therefore easy and pleasant to use. Karite-one leaves a satin finish to the skin and improves suppleness. Its continuous use gradually helps diminish the appearance of premature wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be used during pregnancy to keep skin elasticity, making stretch marks much less noticeable.
