Hand & Body Cream

 Shea Butter is only found in the tropics of Africa.  It is extracted by hand from the nuts of the Karite tree.  The Karite tree which means “Tree of Life” begins to bear fruit after about 15 years; and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts.

 It is the high content of irremovable fatty acid that gives Shea Butter its unique healing properties.  Shea Butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F.  Vitamins A and E help maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy.  Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator.  The all-natural moisturizing properties of Shea Butter make it a valuable addition to hand creams and soaps.
