NILOTICA SHEA BUTTER

BOTANICAL NAME: Vittelaria nilotica

WHAT IS IT

This exquisite shea butter is made from the nuts of the Vitellaria nilotica - a tree indigenous to the Upper Nile region of Central Africa. The Niloteca shea tree is a sub species of the more common West african Karite tree or Vitellaria paradox (which is traditionally where most sheabutter in the world comes from).

Nilotica sheabutter is pressed from the nuts of Vitellaria nilotica from East Africa.

This tree is a sub species of the more common and well-known West African variety Vitellaria paradoxa.

 

WHERE DO WE GET IT FROM

Our Nilotica Shea Butter comes from Uganda and is produced by a family owned mill employing local labour. The nuts are collected by local farmers from trees growing in the wild and then cold pressed, without the use of chemicals or solvents. This ensures that the butter retains its unique fatty acid profile. 

Certified organic by Ecocert  and USDA Organic

  

WHY IS IT SO GOOD

We only use Niloteca Sheabutter in all of our creams and formulations. 

We love all shea butter but Niloteca sheabutter from East Africa is that bit more creamy, soft and luxurious with a milder, slightly nutty aroma.

Nilotica Sheabutter contains a high percentage of shea olein and therapeutic unsaponifiable lipids which helps to moisturise the skin and maintain and improve elasticity.

Due to its anti-inflammatory properties Nilotica shea butter is excellent for soothing irritated, inflamed skin and may also help reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains. Naturally high in vitamin A & E Nilotica shea butter aids in cellular regeneration and is therefore particularly useful for mature skin and an excellent butter for soothing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
