Organic African Shea Nut Butter

In 2004, Vermont Soap Founder and CEO Larry Plesent did a survey of shea butter extraction techniques and marketing methods in Upper Guinea for USAID. He met, and talked with hundreds of people. Every once in a while he would spot a person who looked younger than everyone else. It was hard to place their age. When he singled out these people and asked if they rubbed shea butter into their skin, they would often hesitate and blush – it was their secret!

Shea Butter is full of all kinds of anti-inflammatory molecular goodies like triterpene esters. In several studies these “magic molecules” have been shown to moderate symptoms of inflammatory response.

Useful for burns, all dry and irritated skin conditions (except for Poison Ivy, Oak etc., which contain irritating oils that need to be removed with Tea Tree Castile Liquid Soap). Recommended for wrinkle smoothing and prevention, and for the treatment of sun damaged skin. After much trial and tribulations, not to mention innumerable delays, we have established a reliable supply chain from Northern Ghana. For your safety this completely natural USDA certified organic shea butter has been specially filtered to remove any naturally occurring latex found in the kernel of the shea nut.  We do not know the exact shelf life of the product, but we do expect it to be at least double that of market quality shea.


Ingredients: Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Flower Extract
