Manufacturer Description

Made from the same Karite nut (Butyrospermum parkii). It is processed similarly, but the root of the Borututu Tree (Cochlospermum angolense) is added during the milling process. The root is responsible for the bright yellow color. Borututu is a medicinal plant from Africa.

Although both yellow & ivory shea butter come from the same source, the yellow variety is slightly more firm & takes a little longer to absorb into the skin. The smell is very similar to ivory shea butter, a slightly sweet & nutty scent. The two butters are more or less the same. Some people say that yellow is better for skin conditions like eczema & psoriasis, because it stays on the skin longer. Our preference is for ivory, due to it's softer texture & neutral color. You cant go wrong either way, try both out for yourself & see which one you like better! 

Shea Butter has been used to help heal burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, & stretch marks. It may also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, & increasing circulation. It also contains cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays. The butter is a particularly effective moisturizer because it contains so many fatty acids, which are needed to retain skin moisture & elasticity. The high fatty acid content also makes it an excellent additive to soap, shampoos, anti-aging creams, cosmetics, lotions, & massage oils. Its soft, butter-like texture melts readily into the skin. Shea Butter protects the skin from both environmental & free-radical damage. It contains vitamins A and E, & has demonstrated both antimicrobial & anti-inflammatory properties. It's also used externally as a detox wash as a tea made from the bark of the to assist the functions of the liver and gallbladder.
