Shea trees are native to Africa. They bear their fruit (nut) once annually after they are approximately 20 years old. Africans traditionally refer to shea trees as Gods gift to Africa because of their long, 300-year lifespan and the rich, highly nourishing butter that they yield.

West African Shea Butter is traditionally pressed from the fruits of shea trees of the species Butyrospermum parkii, and Nilotica Shea Butter is pressed from the fruits of East African shea trees, Vitellaria nilotica. While both West African and East African (Nilotica) shea butters offer impressive benefits, Nilotica Shea Butter possesses a higher olein content and is softer, creamier and sweeter in aroma than West African Shea Butter.

Although the political climate of Uganda makes the sourcing of Organic Nilotica Shea Butter difficult, we are able to provide this premium quality butter sourced in a manner that fully protects the valuable shea trees. Our procurement methods also support the economic growth of the regions tribes.

Comments: I've tried both the organic Burkina Faso and the organic Nilotica Shea Butter. The Nilotica is so much softer and easier to rub into skin. I also prefer the smell of it to the Burkina Faso. The only downside is the cost difference. I use shea butter to make a lotion for my child. It has helped reduce the itching and redness better than anything else we've tried.
