Shea Body Butter
This product is currently sold out.
We'll just say it: we're in love with Karité's shea butter products. Not all shea butter products are created equal, but this dermatologist-created body butter combines high concentrations or raw, unrefined shea butter, sustainable-sourced palm oil, and unrefined organic coconut oil to create a non-toxic product that truly hydrates and nourishes the skin. This one-of-a-kind combination of natural botanicals provides antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits for any skin type.
We find you only need a small amount to lather into the skin, but when extra hydration is needed, the body butter builds upon itself effortlessly and nourishes the skin quickly - there's no sticky feeling here.
As an almost fully women-led industry in Ghana, the shea butter industry supports the livelihood of rural African women and their communities. For thousands of years, shea butter has been used for its therapeutic benefits and as an exceptional moisturizer, rich with essential fatty acids, vitamin A and vitamin E - all essential for maintaining the skin's elasticity and softness, while repairing the skin's barrier and providing relief for those suffering from dry skin, eczema and other conditions. There are no irritating ingredients like dyes, silicones or parabens in Karité products.
Every special gift in The Arora Collection celebrates Black women-owned businesses.
