Sheabutter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree (Butyrospermum parka), which grows on the savannah of West Africa. The English name Shea comes from the Malian name “SII”, which means sacred. The Shea is a sacred tree and it is also treated with great respect. The trees can be up to 60 meters high and up to 200 years old. The tree only starts to bear fruit after 20 years.
Shea butter for care of skin and hair
The wealth of valuable ingredients, the unsaturated fats with a large proportion of the “irreconcilable” components, essential fatty acids, fystosterole, vitamin E and vitamin D, provitamin A and allantoin (as we already mentioned a special miracle of nature) make Sheabutter into a special skin care product. All these ingredients together make Sheabutter a superfood for skin and hair.
