Refined Shea Butter



Shea Butter is a healing substance used in everything from soaps to pharmaceutical remedies. In its natural state, it is a powerful moisturiser. In addition, it can reduce inflammation on the skin and face, making it ideal to tend to scars and burns. It can also keep skin smooth and soft, for a perfect complexion. This kind of Shea Butter has been naturally refined using activated charcoal and retains most if not all of the vitamins and minerals that unrefined Shea Butter has.
