What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is abstracted from the seed of the African Shea tree. Pure natural Shea butter is commonly ivory to yellow in color. And Shea butter is a favorite additive in many cosmetic products because of its great moisturizing qualities. Shea butter is also used in many food products and as a replacement for cocoa. Now for a little background. Shea butter was first discovered in Africa where the inhabitants used Shea butter for everything from cooking to preparing ointments and salves. In recent years many manufacturers have discovered the wonderful qualities of Shea butter and exported African Shea butter to other countries to be used in various cosmetic preparations.
