So, what is karitè?

Karitè, also known as shea butter, is a versatile and natural ingredient used in various industries. Extracted from the nuts of the African shea tree, karitè is rich in fatty acids and vitamins, making it an excellent moisturizer for the skin and hair. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe irritated or inflamed skin, making it ideal for use in cosmetics and skincare products. Karitè is also used in the food industry as a substitute for cocoa butter and is a common ingredient in chocolate production. Its unique nutty aroma and creamy texture make it a popular choice for both culinary and cosmetic applications.
