The cousin of the much more recognized West African Shea Butter, Nilotica Shea Butter provides many similar benefits yet has a much more pleasant smell and enhanced spreadability. This butter will regenerate and rejuvenate skin cells due to its content of amyrin and lupeol triterpenes. Additionally, studies have shown that its unique combination of unsaponifiables contain UV-B absorbing properties that equal an SPF value of about 3-4. This butter has been attributed to a number of other functions, including alleviant for rheumatism, reduction of dermatitis, strong anti-aging action, a natural emollient, as well as additional benefits. This diverse butter is recommended for use in all types of body and hair care.
