Key Features: 

  • Shea butter is extracted from the kernels, which contain 50% solid fat.
  • Exceptionally rich unsaponifiable matter (kariten, terpene alcohol and tocopherols)
  • Highly rich in oleic acid and stearic acid. Stearic acid gives TrueShea™ its texture and its melting characteristics. Oleic acid is an excellent emollient. This butter moisturizes the skin and hair, making them softer and more supple.
  • Exceptional levels of unsaponifiable compounds (tocopherols, phytosterols, triterpens, karitens, etc.)
  • Protects the skin from free radicals and oxidation and encourages epidermal regeneration and skin elasticity.
  • Shea butter is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is suitable for sensitive or weakened skin.
  • Reduces the transepidermal water loss by forming a protective film; the skin is deeply moisturized and protected from external aggressions
  • TrueShea™ Shea butter is Responsibly sourced.
