What is Shea Butter
Shea butter is one of nature's most effective moisturizers and is often referred to as "the moisturizer". It has long been used for skin and hair care by West Africans. Today, it is used extensively in beauty creams, lotions, and shampoos. Shea butter is a monoclonal protein fraction which is extracted from nuts of the Shea tree. Shea butter, also known as Sheanut butter, is very rich in essential fatty acids, protein, and several vitamins. It provides quick, even, moisturizing results when applied to skin and hair. At Shea Bliss Natural Our Shea butter never undergoes any chemical extraction or refining process. It is sourced from woman-run co-operatives in Nigeria, West Africa.
