You've heard of Shea Butter, but have you heard of Shea Nut Oil? During the extraction process of the Shea Butter, a small amount of oil is extracted directly from the Shea Nut.
Shea Nut oil has many of the same benefits of Shea Butter, as it is beneficial for assisting with skin conditions such as cutaneous dryness, dermatitis, eczema, solar erythema and burns.
It is obtained by the cold pressing of the fruits "Nut" of the "Shea Tree" or Karite Tree. The result is an ivory/yellowish colored fat that melts at body temperature, absorbs rapidly into the skin, and has good water binding properties.
Shea Nut Oil is semi liquid at room temperature and has a melting point of 35 / 45° C
