Shea Butter (Women's Gold) is derived from the kernel of the Karite tree, or Tree of Life which grows only in the savannah regions of Africa. Shea Butter's emollient properties have been proven through centuries of use in Africa. It is traditionally used to nourish the skin, to keep it supple and young. When it is used in its purest, unrefined, certified organic form, it can provide healing for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, stretch marks, and dermatitis. Shea Butter is also a staple of African pharmacology due to its potent healing abilities. Clinical trials demonstrate shea butter's ability to deliver effective therapeutic results as well as safe and natural skincare.

The problem with "high street" cosmetics
 
So many people, especially women, who use skin oils or creams buy products with petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) as a base. Petroleum jelly is even advertised as suitable for babies. We believe that you should only put on your skin what you can eat withour harm (and this certainly does not include petro-chemicals). What you put on your skin, especially if oil based will most certainly enter the lymph, the blood and finally will be deposited and stored in the liver, brain and other tissues. Many people use these products all of their lives without any real knowledge of the damage they could be doing. Petroleum jelly has also been found to contain carcinogenic chemicals that have been banned in the EU.

Have a look at the labels of your moisturisers and soaps and look up the ingredients, find out the truth about those long chemical names listed on all of your high street cosmetics. Here's one database that lists many commonly used cosmetic chemicals http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ but there are others if you care to look.

The truth is that petroleum jelly is a very cheap base for body application creams, even the so called "high quality" moisturisers, but is it healthy in the long term? We believe it is not. So, we set out to create and find skin care products that are free of petro-chemicals, artificial additives and preservatives. To find a natural, unprocessed product that has both good moisturising properties and many therapeutic benefits is a real boon. To that end we would like to introduce you to Shea Butter. As mentioned above, We believe that the best standard that you can apply to any skin care product is it's edibility. If you cannot eat it without harm, then you should not use it on your skin. We are not suggesting that you should eat it, we tried that for you! and we know from experience that it does not taste good, but that is not the point. The point is it was harmless.
 
Shea Butter Production
 
Shea Butter comes from the Karite tree (women’s gold) which grows only in the savannah regions of Africa. The ripe Shea fruits are gathered from beneath the trees between April and June. Only the fruits which have fallen to the ground are used. The fruits are then de-pulped by washing vigorously in water. In some areas, the fruit is buried until the flesh rots, this makes it easier to de-pulp the fruits and the heat generated prevents germination. The nuts are boiled for about 20 minutes, then dried in the sun. The husks are cracked to remove the chaff and the nuts are then sun dried to reduce their water content. These dried nuts are manually crushed into smaller pieces on flat stones to prepare them for roasting. They are roasted over open wood fires until very hot when the oil can be seen glistening clearly on these small pieces and the unique fragrance becomes evident. At this point they are then ready for milling.
 
The roasted nuts are taken to the mill where they are finely milled to a thick paste ready for the kneading process. This is one of the most intensive parts of the production. The thick paste is manually kneaded in circular strokes in a single direction to release the precious oil. This process takes almost an hour. The "dough" is ready when it turns greyish white. Water is then added to separate the crude shea butter, which settles on top. The crude shea is skimmed off and boiled until the pure shea butter is clearly separated from the crude mixture. The pure shea is then cooled overnight ready for shipping. There is no waste, as the remaining materials are used for animal feed or soap production.
