Shea Butter Australian Certified Organic
This edible nut butter is used primarily in skincare products for its emollient and protective qualities. The extract of the Shea nut is rich in cinnamic acid which protects skin from UV rays, plus its nutrient dense formula make it suitable to treat all kinds of skin conditions.
It is considered mildly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, so it addresses concerns with reddened or irritated skin like eczema, psoriasis and even rosacea. It will soothe sunburn and promote healing for scars, deep wrinkles and creases, therefore it's great for an all-over product that can heal and prevent premature aging.
You can add this to balm recipes to create softer creams with superior glide. Applied to wet skin these kinds of formulations absorb deep into the skin layers, plumping and restoring firmness and tone. Use it as an intensive hair treatment, hand and nail treatment, and pedicure preparation to soften hardened calices or rough skin.
It's perfect for applying to skin with a host of valuable oils, fats and other nutrients... and is naturally high in antioxidants that prevent it from going rancid, so your beautiful preparations will keep for a long time in a cool, dark storage area.
This is a naturally refined Shea that is processed with citric acid, clays and charcoal to remove particulate; creating a smooth, pale butter.
I've melted my original supply over a very low heat and poured it into small moulds for easy use measuring which provides another natural refining process to remove anymore small particulates from the butter. Each button shape weighs approximately 10g.
