The shea nuts for the certified organic shea butter come from wild-growing trees.

Shea butter is an all-rounder: it is suitable for body, lip and hair care. The stearic acid it contains reduces moisture loss, while the oleic acid provides intensive care. The skin balm is considered to be very intensive and regenerative care for dry and stressed skin. With its delicately melting texture and naturally nutty fragrance, shea butter is ideal for body and face care, massages, hair care or as a lip balm.

The unrefined, creamy white to beige butter is obtained from the fruit of the shea tree, which is why shea butter is also known as shea butter. It is a solid fat. Shea butter is considered moisturizing and nourishing. Alongside argan oil, almond oil and coconut oil, it is a popular natural product for hair and skin care.

The shea nut tree: up to 500 years old

The shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) is also known as the shea nut tree or African butter tree. It is native to tropical Central Africa. The slow-growing tree grows up to 25 meters high. The shea tree bears the fruit, which contains the valuable nuts, after the first flowering period, i.e. at an age of around 25 years. A high-yield harvest is possible when the tree is 50 years old. The tree can live for up to 500 years. While the pulp can be eaten, the kernel serves as the basis for shea butter. It contains around 50 percent fat.

Traditional production of shea butter

In Africa, shea butter is also known as "women's gold". The background: the collection and processing of shea nuts is traditionally in the hands of women and forms the basis of livelihood for millions of women and families. This shea butter comes from countries in East and West Africa.

The shea nut grows on the shea tree of the genus Vitellaria paradoxa subsp. paradoxa. The green fruits are first collected. Then the flesh is removed. The nuts are boiled, dried and cracked. They are then processed in small factories. The
The kernels are washed, dried, broken, roasted and ground. The resulting mass is stirred into a paste-like substance with the addition of water. The fat dissolves, is sieved off and boiled. This produces the raw, yellowish shea butter. The smell is described as aromatic and spicy.

High concentration of unsaponifiable components

Shea butter contains a balanced proportion of stearic acid and oleic acid as well as valuable secondary plant substances that cannot be saponified. The so-called unsaponifiable components cannot be dissolved, i.e. saponified, by contact with water. The unsaponifiables create a kind of protective barrier on the skin. This part of shea butter is said to have particularly beneficial cosmetic properties. In addition to tocopherols or catechins, these are phytosterols. These are similar to the skin's own cholesterol and strengthen the skin's natural lipid barrier.

The shea nuts for our certified organic shea butter come from wild-growing trees. The product has not been tested on animals, it is purely plant-based and therefore vegan.

Ich habe mir das Produkt zum Behandeln von pflegebedürftigen Hautpartien gekauft. Ich hatte es mir cremiger also "buttrig" vorgestellt, aber das liegt nur an mangelnder Sachkenntnis. Man braucht eine gewisse Zeit, um die feste Struktur gut auf der Haut zu verteilen, dafür ist man nicht so verschwenderisch und es entschleunigt... mehr >>

Ein schönes aprodukt für die Haar- oder Gesichtspflege. Es ist von der Konsistenz etwas fester und benötigt etwas Wärme um geschmeidig zu werden. Ich habe es gleich zweimal bestellt und habe eins weiter verschenkt.

Wunderbar für Gesicht und Dekolleté. Habe die Sheabutter mit zwei Tropfen Jojoba Öl in einem extra Creme Töpfchen gemischt und trage das morgens und abends auf. Die Haut füllt sich glatt und entspannt an.

Das Sheabutter Hautbalsam hat eine possitive Wirkung auf beanspruchte Haut, z.B. rauhe Hände. Allerdings sind sowohl der Geruch als auch die Konsistenz etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Der Balsam ist sehr ergiebig und sparsam. Eine kleine Menge reicht , sie schmilzt in der Hand und lässt sich so gut auftragen
