The oil extracted from the nuts of the Karite tree possesses excellent culinary value, but above all it is a super food for the skin. The legendary rulers of Egypt Cleopatra and Nefertiti entrusted their beauty to shea butter, which protected their faces from the harsh desert wind and sun.
The kernel of this long-living tree is abundant in antioxidants in the form of vitamins, acids and catechins, which bestow with long life the human skin, as well.
Shea butter absorbs very quickly without clogging the pores. It moisturizes and gives a velvety softness, smoothing out wrinkles and stretch marks. Moreover, the oil of the sacred plant has deeply soothing and anti-inflammatory effect, which relieves discomfort caused by rashes and excessively dry skin.
