NILOTICA SHEA BUTTER is Cold Pressed, and unrefined (raw). Nilotica Shea Butter is a rare, creamy, natural shea butter grown mostly in Northern Uganda and some parts of Southern Sudan. East African Nicotica Shea has a higher concentration of oleic acid than West African Shea (25% higher) as well as higher levels of Vitamins A and E. Oleic acid is what gives shea butter it’s smooth feel. It’s also what gives it’s moisturizing abilities.
It has a light yellow color compared to the darker yellow West African Shea. It is very lightweight (melts at 65F) and less greasy than West African shea butter, with an almost nonexistent scent. The texture is so creamy that it does not need to be whipped!
**No essential oil has been added for scent.
A little goes a long way. Add a small quantity into palm of hands and apply to slightly damp skin directly after showering or bathing to seal in moisture. Use daily all over body (and/or hair) for ultra hydrating nourishment.
