INGREDIENTS: 100% Unrefined, Organic Natural Shea Butter.
Old Fashion’s unrefined, organic shea butter is extracted and prepared without the use of any chemicals or preservatives. Unrefined shea butter maintains its nutty scent, natural color and its many healing properties.
Unrefined shea butter is an ivory colored, natural fat from the seed of the African shea tree.
Common Uses: in its pure, unrefined state, shea butter is most commonly applied as a moisturizer for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter is by itself ready for direct application to the skin but mixing it with other natural ingredients such as essential oils and other kinds of butter, you can make it even more appealing and convenient for particular applications.
When adding shea butter to creams and lotions it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture before incorporating it into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g).
