Shea Butter - Our Shea Butter is obtained by cold pressing the seeds of the karite tree (and is then refined). Our shea butter is a creamy white solid that is ultra-refined and has a neutral smell. The Shea Butter, Ultra Refined is physically decolorized using organic clays (diatomaceous earth, aka "bleaching clays") to remove color and impurities. The odor is removed via injection of steam to "blow-off" the volatile oils which contribute to shea butter's sharp, objectionable odor. There are no chemicals usedto process our shea butter.
Our shea butter will start to melt on contact with the skin, making it an excellent choice for lip balms and lotion bars. Suggested Use Levels: Lotions & Creams: 3-5% Balms: 5-100% Bar Soaps: 3-6%.
Ingredients:Botanical Name: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) FruitCommon Name: Shea Butter
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Maria! I'm so glad you love our Shea Butter! Shea Butter has a shelf life of one year. Preservatives protect against bacteria growth from the introduction of water to a product so it would not keep your butter from going bad. You can read more about how preservatives work in our Talk It Out Tuesday: Preservatives blog post. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
"Thank you for your prompt response. Bramble Berry has the best customer service of any company I know of. Pass the word!" -Rene
