Our organic shea butter is an Eastern Shea butter product. Many wonder what the difference is between our product and a traditional Western Shea. Eastern shea butter comes from an east Africal shea sub-species called vitellaria nilotica. This ingredient is in higher olien oil content than West African product. The result of using a shea butter with olien oil is that it’s:
- Richer in vitamins A and E
- A higher quality product
- The Eastern Shea butter has a softer and creamier texture to it.
