Shea butter is a 100% natural multi-purpose vitamin A & E cream which originates from the fruit of the Shea Tree. The butter contains exceptional moisturizing properties for both skin and hair. This is Unrefined Shea Butter from Ghana and comes in beige and yellow. Whether the color of shea butter is white, ivory or yellow....it makes no difference in the quality of the butter nor in how it may be used. The yellow butter has a light, pleasant aroma. It is not the deep burnt aroma found in some yellow shea butters. Shea is extremely moisturizing and gentle to the skin.
