A beautiful oil with a deep golden color which is delivered to us from expeller pressing the nut seed of the Shea (Karite) Tree. Shea oil is a byproduct of Shea butter production where the pressing of the seeds produces a fractionated oil. This oil leaves a smooth and healthy feel to the skin. Stores well under any condition but extreme heat will lessen the shelf life. Shea oil has a fairly thick consistency; it can be easily liquefied in warm water.
