Key Ingredient Shea Butter

KEY INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT

SHEA BUTTER

Let's start with where it comes from: the kernels of shea trees, which are native to sub-Saharan Africa. Traditionally, parts of the shea tree were famous for their anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, relieving health issues like ulcers, nasal congestion and, unsurprisingly, skin problems. Shea butter still mostly comes from this region, but these days, it's most valued for its proven skincare abilities. Shea butter is extracted locally by pounding the kernels and grinding them to an oily chocolate paste. It is boiled and the oil is skimmed off after removing the scum containing the impurities.
