24Karite Gold Shea butter products only use 100% raw, wild crafted and unrefined Shea butter. This ensures that our products are of the absolute highest quality possible and that our Shea butter retains all of the therapeutic compounds that are lost during the refinement process. It is soft, creamy, easy to use, never grainy or hard, and can easily be used alone or as a base for other skincare products.
Our Shea butter is produced without the use of solvents, bleaches, hexane and other chemicals. The Shea nuts are simply ground up and the resulting Shea butter mixture is gently melted and strained to remove physical debris. Beyond that, the Shea butter is left alone, resulting in a very clean and highly therapeutic healing balm that delivers concentrated levels of nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and unique therapeutic compounds to the skin. This exceptional integrity and nutrient density make 24Karite Gold Shea butter especially suited to healing and soothing irritated, aged and dry skin.
