My New Love….

Guys have you heard about Nilotica Shea?? Have a read about this amazing butter!!

Organic Nilotica Shea (Vitellaria nilotica), is a highly nourishing ingredient that is remarkably effective in healing dry and cracked skin, eczema, psoriasis and sun damaged skin. Its high content of non-saponifiables and unique fatty acid profile gives it the ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin.

Organic Nilotica Shea Butter helps combat the signs of aging and can reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It repairs brittle, damaged hair. Organic Nilotica Shea Butter may also help to protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration. It is also a noteworthy anti-inflammatory and is a beneficial ingredient in formulations intended to reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains.

Organic Nilotica Shea Butter (Vitellaria nilotica) is produced in Northern Uganda. It is far superior in texture, nutritive value and aroma than shea butter produced in West Africa. Nilotica Shea offers a significantly higher content of olein, a glyceride of oleic acid. Organic Nilotica Shea Butter is softer and creamier than West African Shea Butter, and it is more readily absorbed into the skin and hair. This butter also possesses a lighter, more pleasant aroma than West African Shea Butter.

My experience with Nilotica Shea is that it is very very creamy, much creamier than regular Shea butter. I absolutely love this stuff. I’m planning to whip it into a butter and use it in my hair as currently I have only tried it on my skin, usually on my face. It seems to absorb quite quickly, not leaving a greasy residue so your face isn’t shiny like a grease monkey… I can use this straight out of the fridge as it has a lower melting point than regular shea. Seriously, I can’t get over how creamy this butter is!! Imagine regular shea on steroids??…There you go!!

Try it for yourself. It’s more expensive then regular shea, but that’s because it grows in a small region in East Africa (compared to the West Africa Shea) and the region is politically unstable making it hard to access.  This in turn makes it a very rare butter, but I think it’s worth the extra coinage it demands.

Don’t feel guilty about cheating on regular shea, after all your keeping it in the family ;o)
