Botanic Glow’s Unrefined African Shea Butter comes directly from Ghana, West Africa. During the crafting process, shea nuts are picked from the shea karite tree, then cracked, grilled, and pounded to extract this healing butter. From there, it’s boiled in water for several hours until it rises to the top, then collected and cooled in gourds until it becomes solid.
African shea butter is high in fatty acids and vitamins A, E, and F, making it very effective at treating scars, acne, eczema, burns, rashes, and psoriasis, and it provides mild UV sun protection. This truly is an all-natural multi-purpose emollient that can be used on the entire body. It quickly melts when applied to the warmth of your skin, making it easy to absorb.
You’ll notice the light, nutty scent as you massage this nourishing butter into your skin. Best of all, Botanic Glow’s Grade A Unrefined African Shea Butter comes from suppliers that are members of the African Fair-Trade Council, so you can do good for your skin while also helping workers, farmers, and their families.
Note: During the summer months, your butter might arrive in semi-liquid form. This can be resolved by popping it in the refrigerator for an hour to return its firmness.
