PLEASE NOTE THAT: Our natural butters may melt naturally around 25 to 30 degrees C.
But do not worry! The melting can change the appearance of the product on the surface but will not degrade its properties. Vegetable butters should become solid again within a few hours (or sometimes days, depending on the butter). We kindly recommend that you store your butters in the fridge in hot weather, and to always keep them in a fresh/cool environment at room temperature otherwise.

Used all over Africa, our traditionally cold expressed Refined SHEA butter comes from the nuts of butyrospermum parkii.
The resulting raw butter is then deodorised with water steam and filtered to remove all impurities.
This process of extraction yields more stable shea butters, that will keep for longer and still retain an excellent level of active properties.
Many will prefer this version of our shea butter for its softer smell and ease to blend.
Soft and creamy, our shea butter is a universal natural care.
Use it daily with delight, from head to toes. It will melt into your skin leaving it well nourished, restored, glowing and protected.
