100% Natural Shea Butter has a rich, luxurious texture that penetrates deep to condition and moisturize every type of skin. Shea Butter is hexane-free and derived from the tree nuts of the karite trees that grow in Western and Central Africa. It is a wonderful emollient that's perfect for daily use. Can also be used as a scalp moisturizer.
This product is naturally hard and colour/texture will vary depending on temperature. This product will melt when warmed above body temperature and become solid again when cool. This is natural and may affect the appearance, but will not harm the quality of the product. This warming and cooling may produce fat crystals affecting the colour/texture making it appear grainy or uneven. If hard, shea butter can be softened by placing in a pan of hot water (e.g. 100 F or warmer) for 30 minutes or microwaved until soft.
Suggested Use: Gently apply as desired, paying close attention to dry or chapped areas, reapply as needed.
Caution for Microwaving: This jar contains an oil seal. Do not place this jar directly in microwave. Before microwaving, scoop out desired mount and place in a microwave-safe container. Allow time to cool before applying.

Probably the best moisture sealant for my body. I melt a table spoon of Shea butter in the microwave, then add two table spoons of grape seed oil and as much essential oil as I like. it works wonders on dry elbows, knees and heels.
For my hair (I have curls), it was too heavy no matter how little I used.

Love it. The only stuff I can apply on the eczema of my 4 year old daughter without having her screaming it burns. I like to use it like a paste for my hair too. The texture changes with temperature so if it's hard (like in winter) you juste have to warm it with your hands or microwave and it become smooth again.

I have used shea butter for years but never tried this brand before. It came nicely sealed and packaged. An excellent moisturizer for hair and body. I have very tightly coiled, kinky, dry hair and this is excellent. I gave a 4/5 stars because I find this product is more expensive than other shea butter brands I have tried but they all work the same, in my opinion
