The Shea tree is a magical tree, especially for women… The "king of the savannah" in Western Africa, Shea is a sacred tree that should never be cut down or damaged. Women are considered the guardians and collect the large nuts that yield the butter for which the tree is so famous. Its cosmetic virtues date back to Antiquity and it is said that Nefertiti owed her legendary beauty to this tree. Shea Butter is exceptionally rich in unsaponifiables, the most precious part of antioxidant-rich vegetable oils. It also contains Vitamins A, D, E and F which help protect skin and encourage cell renewal.
