Native to Africa, Shea trees bear fruit once annually after they are approximately 20 years old. The fruit of the shea tree is also referred to as a nut. Africans have traditionally referred to the trees as Gods gift to Africa because of their long, 300-year lifespan and the rich, highly nourishing butter that they yield.

Our Shea Butter is fully refined. It is a semi-soft, white butter with the mild, characteristic odor of shea butter. Our Shea Butter is 100% natural and is produced from premium quality shea nuts. It is extracted and refined without the use of harsh chemicals.

Comments: First time ordering from FNWL. The refined Shea Butter feels creamy, soft and smooth. I like the texture. I would order again, but it is a bit high for my current financial state. However, I am pleased with the overall product.
