Shea butter is a slightly yellowish or ivory colored natural fat extracted from the seed of the African shea tree by crushing and boiling. The English name “shea” comes from sí, the tree’s name in the Bamana languages of Mali. The French name “karité” comes from ghariti, its equivalent in the Wolof language of Senegal.

Shea butter is widely used in cosmetics as a as moisturizer creams and emulsion, and hair conditioners for dry and brittle hair. It is edible and may be used in food preparation, or sometimes in the chocolate industry as a substitute for cocoa butter.

Shea butter has been claimed to be effective treatment for the following conditions: fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, severely dry skin, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretchmarks, wrinkles, and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis. It has been used as a sunblocking lotion, although the level of protection against the sun’s ultraviolet radiation is extremely variable, ranging from nothing to approximately SPF 6. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
