Organic Shea Butter Nilotica ~ East African 100g
For shea butter connoisseurs everywhere! We’re excited to finally share with you this wonderfully unique and rare shea butter nilotica from East Africa.
Unlike West African shea butter, shea butter nilotica is naturally soft and buttery and ready to use straight from the tub. An incredible natural skin food, this is as close to nature as a body butter can get! Richly moisturising to dry skin, problem skin and skin exposed to the sun and wind. Nutrient rich, it is very easily applied and it is ideal for hungry or very dry skin. It has excellent moisturising properties and has a phenolic profile similar to that of green tea.
Why choose Shea Butter Nilotica? Uniquely buttery, it has a higher content of oleic acid, making it naturally soft and creamy. Also known as golden shea butter, this natural treasure is unrefined, wildcrafted, organic and ethically traded with women’s co-operatives in Uganda and Sudan.
Free from any chemical processing, this shea butter retains all its natural goodness, creamy colouring and natural earthy aroma. Cold processing ensures that it’s vitamin A and E content are preserved.
Colour: Light creamy yellow
Texture: Creamy and buttery. Any occasional graininess melts on contact with the skin.
Aroma: Sweet, earthy, lightly smoky (like forest honey).

Our organic shea butter nilotica is sourced from a women’s project in Uganda, a country scarred by war. Wild harvested kernels are harvested by women from the forests of Northern Uganda and processed in Kenya – providing a commercial outlet and a sustainable income for the community.
Please Note: Shea Butter contains a natural substance which is similar to latex and it’s use should be avoided by people with a latex allergy.
