Chikel Shea Butter
Chikel Shea butter is a locally made in Nigeria product. It is 100% natural, organic, unrefined, and pure, no added ingredients, preservatives or any other nasties!, this means that it hasn't undergone any chemical refining process or extraction. Our raw Shea butter is extracted in the traditional way. Our range of high quality Shea butters are available in both food grade for cooking and cosmetic grade, perfect for use in your lotions, creams and balms. We supply our Shea butter in a clear plastic food grade tub to keep it fresh. Our Shea butter is yellow in colour, and it is naturally brittle in consistency.
The benefits to your skin of using unrefined organic Shea butter don't just stop at pure Shea butter being a fantastic moisturizer. Chikel Shea butter contains high amounts of Vitamin A, which is important in improving a number of skin conditions such as blemishes, stretch marks, eczema and dermatitis. Pure organic Shea butter also contains Vitamin E, although the effect this has on the skin is less clear cut. Vitamin E has been described as having anti-aging, anti-free radical agent and having a positive effect on micro-circulation within the skin. It is not entirely proven what effect the Vitamin E in Shea butter has on the skin, but it is sure that only high quality pure and organic Shea butter can provide the benefits mentioned above.
Shea butter that has aged or lost it's natural integrity will only be an effective moisturizer, and have none of the natural health benefits; this is why we sell unrefined pure organic Shea butter, so it has the highest possible amount of nutrients within it.Chikel Shea butter is guaranteed less than 5 months from the time it was harvested and it is best to keep it somewhere cool, dry and sealed. Prolonged exposure to sunlight will degrade it over time.
