Shea Oil is actually derived from Shea butter which is commonly utilized in the cosmetic industry for skin and hair related products. It is obtained by the cold pressing of the fruits 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 waterbinding properties.
Shea butter oil is excellent for dry skin, rashes, eczema, aging, wrinkles, scars, psoriasis, hair growth
