This wonderful butter can only be found in the tropics of Africa. Shea Nuts, the fruit of the Shea Karite Tree is picked, cracked, grilled and pounded to extract the ivory shea butter. It is then boiled in water for a number of hours until the fresh Shea Butter rises to the surface, then scooped into gourds and left to cool and set. Unrefined African Shea Butter is solid at room temperature; however; it quickly liquefies at body temperature. It can vary in quality, appearance and smell depending on where it is produced.
