Our Shea is carefully sourced from a reliable supply chain in Northern Ghana. For your safety, this completely natural USDA certified organic Shea butter has been specially filtered to remove any naturally occurring latex found in the kernel of the Shea nut.
Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). Shea butter has been used for centuries as a skin moisturizer and is found in many cosmetic products. Because Shea butter melts at body temperature and absorbs into the skin rather quickly, it is an ideal base for our balm.
