Shea Butter - 7 oz. (Code 7758)

Shea Butter - 7 oz.  - NOW FOODS - Code 7758  
  • 100% Pure
  • Seals in moisture for dry, cracked skin

NOW 100% Pure Shea Butter has a rich, luxurious texture that penetrates deep to condition and moisturize every type of skin, regardless of tone or texture.  As a natural derivative of the karite trees that grow in Western and Central Africa, pure Shea Butter is a wonderful emollient that's perfect for daily use.  It has a warm, subtle aroma that is both light and pleasant, and works well on both light and dark complexions.  NOW also carries Shea Butter Lotion.  New 7oz size.

The healing qualities of Shea butter are due to the presence of several fatty acids and plant sterols, namely oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids. These oil-soluble components are nonsaponifiable, meaning they do not undergo saponification, or convert to soap, when introduced to an alkali. Shea butter possesses a significantly greater nonsaponifiable fraction than most other nut oils and fats, which lends the substance greater healing potential for the skin.

SUGGESTED USAGE & STORAGE

Gently apply as desired, paying close attention to dry or rough areas, reapply as needed.

This product is naturally hard and color/texture will vary depending on temperature. This product will melt when warmed above body temperature and become solid again when cool. This is natural and may affect the appearance, but will not harm the quality of the product. This warming and cooling may produce fat crystals affecting the color/texture making it appear grainy or uneven. If hard, shea butter can be softened by placing in a pan of hot water (e.g. 100 F or warmer) for 30 minutes or microwaved until soft.
