Shea Butter


Shea butter has always been used by African women as a beauty secret for their skin.

Made from the nuts of the Tree of Youth (Vitellaria paradoxa), the shea butter is harvested in the summer and processed by hand as per tradition. Soft, malleable and cream-colored, it has a particular cosmetic action that makes it unique among beauty products thanks to its unique moisturizing, nourishing, emollient, regenerating and antioxidant properties.
