So, what is shea butter oil?

Shea butter oil is a luxurious and nutrient-rich oil extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It is a pale yellow to ivory color and has a smooth, creamy texture that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Shea butter oil is packed with essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A, E, and F, which help to nourish and protect the skin, hair, and nails. This versatile oil can be used on its own or as an ingredient in skincare and haircare products, providing intense hydration and promoting overall healthy skin and hair.
