what is Shea butter Shea butter
is a gift from the heavens that is delivered to earth on a baby cloud that’s mixed with love and laughter and rainbows and magic but if you want to get technical.
Where Shea butter comes from
Shea butter comes from the Shea nut tree in Africa it’s basically a saturated fat. it has a very earthy gray tan pale color to it and it also has a very earthy smell like kind of like roasted nuts. Shea butter usually stays in a very solid form but if you scoop them up and put it between the palms of your hands and rub it you can melt it so it’s very very smooth benefits fatty acids.
Shea butter is jam-packed with fatty acids and these fatty acids create a protective barrier on whichever area you applied to thus creating a little shield that protects you from the world. they are also very moisturizing and nourishing shelf life. Shea butter is essentially a saturated fat so the shelf life is ridiculous I have never had a tub of shea butter go bad on me probably because I always finish it before it can even go bad but even then in the past 2 or 3 years I’ve used about two or three tubs of shea butter because they last a ridiculously long time and a little goes a long way.
