fall in love with this sweet smelling aroma! Why Shea Butter? Shea butter comes from the nut of the karite shea tree that is indigenous to Africa. Raw, unrefined shea butter contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids. It has been used for centuries for its moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and is quickly absorbed into the skin. Great for stretch marks, rough spots, dark patches, dry skin, and more!
