You probably have seen this name before. But what is it, exactly? The butter is derived from the nut of the Vitellaria Nilotica and Vitellaria Paradoxa tree. They can only be found in West and East Africa. Alluring names but the process is even more interesting. These trees only blossom two months a year and take 30 years to produces nuts, that then take another six months to ripen. But it’s well worth the wait. These nuts are used to make Shea butter, rich with essential fatty acids and vitamin A, E and F. Shea butter balances Sebum production and provides that smooth feeling, while calming the skin at the same time. BAM! That’s what we need.
