Penny Lane Organics Shea Butter
300 g
This Penny Lane Organics Shea Butter is pure, natural, raw, traditional & hand-made!

Shea butter is a natural slightly yellowish or ivory colored and nutty, smoky scented natural fat extracted from the seed of the African shea tree. It is often referred to by its French name as karite tree, which originally (ghariti) means the tree of life. The tree got this name due to its exceptional healing properties.  This raw shea butter is made in a traditional way by Wali women and  children from northern Ghana. Shea nuts are collected, cleaned, washed and cracked by hand before being ground to make butter.

Pure raw shea butter is also edible and has been used for centuries in Africa as cooking oil, as a waterproofing wax, for hairdressing, for candle-making, as an anti-inflammatory for sprains and arthritis  and to sooth dry and cracked skin.

Shea butter has superior moisturizing properties and is often used to by those that suffer from:
  • eczema
  • dermatitis
  • stretch marks
  • dry skin and hair
  • insect bites
  • psoriasis
  • acne
  • cracked skin
  • itchy skin
  • muscle fatigue and tension
  • rheumatism
  • arthritis
  • sunburns
  • skin allergies and rashes
  • scars and dark spots
  • skin blemishes
  • wrinkles

Directions: Use shea butter as a massage oil, as a moisturizer after the shower or instead of a shaving cream. Simply take a small piece of butter and let it melt between the palms of your hands and then spread over the skin or hair roots. Safe to use on children and pets too.

If using Mango butter to make cosmetics - when adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Amazing for making homemade body butter to help my sons eczema. Smells delicious. Great quality and quantity.

I love that this product is softer than most, easy to absorb on skin. Works wonders on the feet, it is very healing. I will try my hand at DIY deoderant with this product.

It does wonders to your skin! I use it as is. Everywhere from my face to my feet! Love it!

Wendy: a few months ago

Received a gift of home made hand lotion from my daughter and really liked it. After I ran out I asked for the recipe and ordered this ingredient. It arrived promptly, was easy to use and worked very well. I also made body butter with it.

Melissa: a few months ago

I meant to order shea body butter, but got this one instead (my mistake), but what a happy accident. I decided to make my own body butter with it and it is the most moisturizing body butter I have ever used. I will definitely buy this again!

Ellen: a few months ago

Quality product at a nice price. I use this on my hair the night before I color, and I never get any visibly damaged hair. I also make eczema cream for my toddler with other essential oils, that works wonder.

I LOVE this shea butter. I was a bit surprised at first when I opened it and it was in chunks....but I love that form now. I also like the smokey smell. I have used the NOW shea butter for a couple of years but I much prefer this butter. I will continue to purchase Penny Lane.
