Shea butter is a solid fatty oil made from the nuts of Karite Nut trees,

also known as Mangifolia, that grow in the semi-arid savannah regions of West and Central Africa.

Shea butter is sometimes called "women's gold," because extracting the butter from the nuts gives employment

and income to hundreds of thousands of rural African village women. Shea butter is so non-toxic and

beneficial that it is used in foods and cooking as well as soaps and beauty products.

It contains beneficial vegetable fats that promote cell regeneration and circulation, making it a wonderful healer

and rejuvenator for troubled or aging skin. It also contains natural sun-protectants.

African healers and beauties have known about shea butter for thousands of years: the substance is almost magical in its healing effects on burns, skin conditions, ulcerated skin, stretch marks, and dryness.
