Organic Refined Shea Butter has all the same great properties of other Shea Butters. It is naturally refined and is nearly white without any discernible scent and conforms with the organic certification process. It is solid at room temperature but not hard. Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is hailed for its protecting and emollient properties. It has high amounts of unsaponifiable matters, vitamin E and other natural active elements, and is a perfect natural moisturizing agent for the skin, particularly the face and hands. It penetrates deeply into the epidermis and leaves a smooth, satiny finish.
