So, what is shea õil?

Shea oil is a non-drying and nurturing oil extracted from the nuts of the shea tree, indigenous to Africa. It is rich in vitamin A, E, and essential fatty acids that make it an excellent moisturizer for skin and hair. Shea oil is ideal for use in body lotions, balms, soaps, and hair care products due to its high concentration of natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Its nourishing effect penetrates deeply into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. The sustainability and eco-friendliness of shea oil production contribute to its growing popularity in the cosmetic industry.
