Nilotica Shea Butter
West African Shea Butter
Not all shea butter is created equal. However most people don’t know that there are two distinct varieties of Shea Butter. One from West Africa (this is the one that most people know) and then there is its more precious and rare cousin from East Africa; Nilotica shea butter.
We often say that comparing the two in terms of consistency and texture is like comparing parmesan cheese to cream cheese. Why is that the case? Any type of vegetable butter is made up out of a solid element called stearin and a liquid element the olein, or oil. The ratio between the two determines how soft the butter is and the melting point. Nilotica shea butter has a much higher oil content compared to West African shea
butter. This is due to the genetic differences between West African shea trees (Vitellaria Paradoxa Paradoxa) and East African shea trees (Vitellaria Paradoxa Nilotica). Because of this Nilotica is so much softer and this also why it melts the moment you touch it into a luxurious oil. In shea butter it is also the oil that has the most beneficial properties. Therefore the higher the oil contents the higher the amount of benefits for your skin and hair. Hence why Nilotica standsout as natures’ skin super-food, even when compared to other extraordinary oils and butter. Our team coldpresses our Nilotica in a dedicated facility in Kampala, Uganda up to international standards. Due to their careful processing we retain
