Ahhh...Shea Nilotica...the Cadillac of shea butters, produced in Sudan. The texture is as if butter and silk had a baby.


East African Shea Butter

Vitellaria Nilotica

Origin: Uganda

East African Shea Butter is absolute perfection! It is not the same as Ivory or Yellow shea butter from West Africa. The texture is soft, creamy, and smooth. The butter has a pleasantly mild but sweet aroma.

This butter is a seasonal butter, not available year-round.

 

The smooth texture can be maintained without the addition of a carrier oil. Whipping is not necessary, but it will also whip up beautifully for whipped body butters. 

 

Great to use alone or as an ingredient for skincare and hair care recipes.

 

Batch Extraction: Expeller Pressed (Cold Pressed)
