100% pure, organic, unrefined, African shea butter, ethically sourced from women's cooperatives in Burkina Faso, replenishes skin and hair with vitamins A & D and essential fatty acids. While shea butter is great for a variety of skin types, it provides multiple benefits - comforts irritated skin, deeply moisturizes dry, cracked skin, hydrates chapped lips, soothes dry, irritated scalp, conditions hair, protects hair from heat, and softens skin and hair. It can also be added to shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, and styling products to help add smoothness and shine to dry or frizzy hair.
