For centuries Africans have used Shea Butter to moisturize, soothe, protect and heal skin conditions. Not all Shea Butter is the same. It takes years for a Karite Tree to mature to produce the best Shea Butter. Also, the extraction process will yield different grades of Shea Butter. We use a chemical free extraction process. Our Shea butter is then very lightly scented with one half of one percent natural mango fragrance. You can certainly find cheap Shea Butter at your local store. But, if you want high quality Shea Butter with the healing properties in tact, you have come to the right place. We've sampled different brands of Shea Butter and this is the best we've found. For details of how Shea Butter can help your hair and skin, see Shea Butter Benefits.
With regular use, SheaMoisture 100% Shea Butter evens skin tone and returns skin to its natural luster. It's solid at room temperature. But, it liquifies at body temperature, absorbing quickly and completely into skin without leaving greasy residue. As it penetrates deep into the skin to re-hydrate and promote cell growth, Shea Butter retains moisture in skin lipids to improve elasticity and combat wrinkles and stretch marks. It is excellent for moisturizing & protecting the scalp, especially on processed and heat-treated hair. Unlike petrolatum based products, it will not clog pores and block hair shaft, allowing for easy breathing and stimulating growth.

Hi. I am gluten-intolerant. Do your shea butter products have any gluten by-products or wheat germ in them? Thanks.

Can I use this on my face as a moisturizer?
By Treasured Locks Staff on October 31, 2011
Answer:There are some people who use shea butter on their faces as a moisturizer and say it's effective. It's not something we would recommend though as it's too heavy and greasy for most people and could lead to acne breakouts for people prone to acne.
You could try a small amount to see if it works for you.
