Additional Information
Refined & Deodorized Shea Butter is the creamy butter expeller pressed from the kernel (nut) of the shea (karite) tree that is wildly grown and cultivated in Sudan and West Africa. It is refined, bleached and deodorized. It's butter-like consistency melts on contact, giving it ideal barrier protection abilities.

Beloved in Africa for centuries, the strengthh of the shea butter lies in its unsaponifiable content which gives it very good soothing properties. High content of Cinnamic acid gives shea butter its skin healing properties. This butter appeals to all skin types and is especially useful in mature or dry skin. Apply directly to the skin or incorporate in soap & body care products.
*** A note about the fear of grainy shea. Shea is naturally grainy & this is not a "bad" thing, just the makeup of the end product. Our shea has a beautiful consistency, but shipping can alter the product (especially when the butter sits in a hot warehouse or shipping truck). To reduce graininess when working w/this product, handle shea butter as little as possible and practice a "slow heat, slow cool" method. Minimal heat reduces the risk of separation of the fats, which causes the crystallized granules to occur. If butter becomes grainy, heat just to melting point and stir to remove any small unmelted pieces. Let shea sit uncovered until it reaches room temp, but not quite a solid, then pour into desired individual containers & cool.NOTICE: Please note that Shea Butter is derived from a nut, so rare individuals with an allergy to latex & nuts can have a reaction to Shea Butter. Keep this in mind when labeling your product.

COMMENTS:  The refined Shea Butter is wonderful. Although it isn't "organic" it is natural and easier to work with than other Shea butters I've used. It's very easy to measure out because it's soft. It melts beautifully so it's much easier to not overheat and end up with a gritty consistency.

COMMENTS:  I received my Shea Butter that must have melted at some point. It was all completely grainy. So I did have to go through the process of remelting & freezing it all to get rid of the graininess. But the butter itself is quite nice. And I really like the jar container that the 8 oz butter comes in. It makes it very easy to scoop out without making a greasy mess.
