What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is the secret beauty treasure that has been extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) by African women for centuries. The Shea nut produces an ivory or yellow coloured fat that is then extracted and put through a traditional process of boiling and kneading to produce our luxuriously creamy and intensely moisturising, unrefined Shea butter. The cosmetics industry have been using Shea butter in many of our skin and hair products for decades and it is also a substitute used in the chocolate and food industry in place of cocoa butter. However, the Shea butter that  is used in the products of most mainstream cosmetic brands has been heavily refined, filled with chemicals and stripped of its natural minerals and properties and thus has little benefit to the user.

The Black Soap Company’s organic unrefined Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, D, F and E, and has the most  unique anti-ageing, healing and moisturising properties to keep your skin feeling revitalised, nourished and silky smooth all day.
