Organic East African Shea Butter glides on easily and absorbs quickly to condition, soften and prevent dryness. To prevent the leeching of toxins typically found in plastic containers, this product is packaged in beautifully decorative glass jars.
How it works: Nilotica is a type of Shea Nut, grown in and around the East African Regions. Superior in quality and texture, Nilotica is nicknamed ‘luxury shea butter’ due to its soft and buttery feel. It has a lower melting temperature, making it smoother and easier to spread. Its luxurious application makes it an ideal option for those who may prefer a moisturizing alternative to our blended Body Butters.
Usage: Organic East African Shea Butter has a higher concentration of oleic acid. Oleic acid is what gives shea butter it’s smooth feel. It’s also what gives it it’s moisturizing abilities. It may prevent stretch marks, dry cracked skin and premature aging. Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, which can soothe eczema and various forms of dermatitis. Also encourages healing of wounds, sunburn and other skin ailments.
Directions for use: Smooth all over body, taking extra care with dry areas. Repeat as needed. Apply less than you think you need and you will be surprised at how far a small amount will go. Regular use will result in healthier, softer skin.
