Raw Shea Body Butter
Ahhhh the magic of raw unrefined shea. Ok... it's not really magic but raw unrefined shea is indeed packed with skin loving properties. This is undiluted pure nothin but the good stuff. If it is not adding skin loving properties it will not be in our products.
The lotions and potions of the commercial mass produced market first ingredients are typically water or alcohol followed by chemical emulsifiers, preservatives, phthalates, DEA, SLS, SLES, petrochemicals, and formaldehyde releasing substances…). The shea used commercially is bleached deodorize and refined. These products drastically decrease the cost of product, increase self life, and is targeted to the consumer as if it smells good who cares.
Please note we use raw unrefined shea. How do you know you have your happy hands on real raw shea…the scent and color. Raw unrefined shea is ivory to yellow in color and has an "earthy" scent. The refining process (what we get in shea products from most big box retailers) removes scent, color and some of the amazing nutrients! We do not "cook it" because we believe just like with food, some nutrition is lost when constant heat is added. That being said there may be a graininess but this will immediately melt into nourishment for your skin. This occasional graininess is from significant changes in temperature (shipping from Ghana to US, Distrubuter to Bettys, Bettys to Retail location or in shipping to you), We firmly feel that these occurrences are superseded by the benefits of SHEA in the RAW. Occasionally, small pieces of shea nut may sneak by the filtration process. Our first ingredient...raw unrefined shea. This means pure skin loving goodness, it also means a little goes a LONG way, so just a dab will do ya!!!! Enjoy the skin your in.
