The fats and proteins in the butter provide the same moisturizers that the skin produces making it the world’s best skin moisturizer and skin healer. Its so much like the skin that there are no known allergies in the world of it.
It’s edible and used in Africa for preparing foods; cooking oil or butter and/or oil for recipes. Is slightly smells like chocolate but doesn’t taste much like chocolate at all.
The Shea Butter comes from the nut (which technically is the seed) of the African Shea Tree. The nut resembles hairless, smooth coconut shells but not as dark. It’s boiled first until the seed cracks and then the shell is removed. Then they boil the inside of the seed in water. Oil will form on top of the water and the oil is skimmed off and placed in another large vat and boiled longer until all the water is removed. Then its left to sit and cool. It’ll solidify and be a natural ivory color.
This natural process can have small amounts of plant material from producing the oil. So, we at DHNaturals.com filter another time for you making sure you have the highest quality Shea butter on the market. Shea butter has small proteins that go deep inside to heal from within and large proteins that protect the skin and stay on the surface of your skin. When Shea butter settles, these proteins can sometimes separate and that’s normal. When well blended, your Shea would be smooth. However, if it cools to slow, they can separate and have a lumpy appearance. Don’t worry, its natural. Heat to smooth again if it gets lumpy.
