Details Ingredients & Additional Information
Shea Olein (Butyrospermum parkii), commonly known as shea tree, shi tree, or vitellaria, is a tree of the Sapotaceae family indigenous to Africa, occurring in Mali, Cameroon, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Togo, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, Burkina Faso and Uganda. The shea fruit consists of a thin, tart, nutritious pulp that surrounds a relatively large, oil-rich seed from which shea butter is extracted. First in the process is the crushed / expeller pressed seed from the nut of the Karite Tree which is known as Shea Butter.

Shea Olein is fractionated Shea Butter, also known as Shea Oil, as it is a semi-liquid at room temperature. Shea butter is composed of five principal fatty acids: palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, and arachidic. The fatty acid composition is dominated by stearic and oleic acids, which together account for 85–90% of the fatty acids. The relative proportion of these two fatty acids affects shea butter consistency. The high stearic acid content gives the shea butter its solid consistency, while the percentage of oleic acid influences how soft or hard the shea butter is, depending on ambient temperature.
Shea Olean is recommended for the following uses:
Skin care (up to 15%), Lipsticks - Lip balms (from 5%), Cosmetic powders - liquid make up ( up to 3% ), Body Butters ( used pure ), Soap bar (up to 10%), Bath & Shower products ( up to 2% ), Hair care ( up to 3% in dry hair and after coloring products ).
