I noticed that many beauty products these days are promoted as containing Shea Butter. Face creams, hand creams, foot creams, body wash, hair conditioners, the list is exhaustive.
For those who don’t know, Shea Butter is the beige colored creamy solid oil extracted from the fruit of the Shea tree and contains naturally occurring vitamin A and vitamin E as well as complex fatty acids and is known for its emollient and moisturizing properties. In fact, my impression is that this is a very rich ingredient. I didn’t know that it is also edible.
