It also restores shine to the hair by nourishing the scalp, while protecting the hair fibers.

Shea butter comes from a nut from a tree of African origin of the Sapotaceae family, also called butter tree and which does not give its first fruits until after 15 to 20 years.
It is a natural product from Burkina Faso.
In this nut there is a core which is cold pressed.
The French name Karité, in English is Shea, comes from the Wolof language of Senegal ghariti which means "butter tree". This tree is native to the savanna of West and Central Africa and is found in about twenty countries in a strip extending over 5,000 km.
The creamy white flowers are fragrant and highly appreciated by the bees, appear in the dry season (between November and January) after the leaves have fallen. The green fruits they produce grow in clusters, these edible fleshy berries contain one or two hard nuts similar to an avocado kernel. From these whitish nuts fat is extracted the shea "butter" containing up to 55% fat.
In the countries of western Africa, shea butter is used for food, health and care of the skin and hair, against climatic conditions, aging, dryness, in soap and for sacred rituals and ceremonies.
Raw shea butter has a relatively high content of vitamin E and other antioxidants. This butter is prized in body care products: it protects, softens and restructures damaged skin. Incorporated into your hair preparations, it nourishes and restores shine and beauty.
