Hand Harvested Shea Butter
EclipseSpa's Shea Butter has been hand-harvested in Ghana Africa. You'll find this shea butter as the main ingredient in our sugar scrubs.
Shea Butter also known as karite butter which is extracted from the nuts of the genus Butyrosperum Parkii Kotschy tree which grows in Central Africa. Karite Butter is superior to cocoa and jojoba butter in its ability to heal damaged and dry skin.
It's great protection for the skin protecting it from the elements; sun, photoageing, and elimination of superficial irritations, burns, eczema, dermatitis, dermatosis, and all damaged hair conditions.
Shea butter is an extremely therapeutic emollient with chemical constituents that help to heal bruising and soreness.
The natives of Central Africa as well as those in Japan use karite butter for food as well as body care. Karite butter is a replacement for regular dairy butter in foods, and a perfect replacement for dairy butter in cooking for vegetarians.
In Africa, it has also long been used with astonishing results as a massage balm for tired and sore muscles, rheumatism, burns, and light wounds.
