Shea Nilotik' shea butter is higher in vitamin E. It can be used as a high conditioner, unlike West African shea butter which builds up a waxy residue. Shea Nilotik' shea butter is gentle enough to use as a facial cream and aids retention of moisture. It is estimated that women who sell their shea nuts make four times the amount of money as their Western counterparts who have to collect firewood and water, dry and roast the nuts, shell them, and powder them before boiling the nuts in water and working the butter out of the paste using their arms. The butter is then filtered and fried to evaporate water. It is estimated the process takes 20 hours to make one kilo, but the women get less than a dollar per kilo. The women in Uganda are required only to sell their collected nuts to the mill in exchange for cash which they use to buy school supplies for their children, food, and medical services.
Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter Lotion: In spite of all the oils and butter introduced to the beauty market each year, none are more effective than shea butter for softening and protecting the skin. Most shea butter moisturizers, however, contain no more than 5% shea butter. Early shea butter research showed that in order to be effective shea butter formulas needed a minimum of 20% shea butter, and we have been using a minimum of 20% shea butter in our moisturizers ever since. 20% virgin, cold pressed, and non-deodorized Ugandan shea butter goes into every bottle of our rich and creamy lotion. Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter Lotion envelops skin with a soothing, silky cocoon. Skin is protected from dehydration and chapping all day long.
