Shea butter is fat that's extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It's solid at warm temperatures and has
an off-white or ivory color. Shea trees are native to West Africa, and most shea butter still comes from that region. Shea butter
has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries. High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal
cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your
body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin.
