Organic Shea Butter

Native to Africa, Shea trees bear fruit once annually after they are approximately 20 years old. The fruit of the shea tree is also referred to as a nut. Africans have traditionally referred to the trees as Godís gift to Africa because of their long, 300-year lifespan and the rich, highly nourishing butter that they yield.
