About Our Shea Butter

Paw Pudding - 100% Unrefined Shea Butter with Vitamin E

Our Paw Pudding is made of 100% Organic Shea Butter from Ghana. Shea butter is fat that’s extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It’s solid and melts at 89-100F. The color of raw Shea butter ranges from cream to grayish yellow. This depends on the nuts used. Pay in mind that pure white Shea butter is highly refined and has probably lost most of its healing properties.Shea trees are native to West Africa, and most shea butter still comes from that region.


What Are the Benefits of Shea Butter?

High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin.

Can I Use Shea Butter If I Have A Nut Allergy?

Shea butter is an incredibly low-risk topical ingredient. Allergic reactions to shea butter are rare.

Even people who are allergic to tree nuts, the family that shea nuts belong to, have a low risk of reaction to shea butter on their face. Researchers believe this is because shea nuts contain little of the tree-nut proteins that trigger allergies. However, as with any product should you develop skin irritation you should consult with your doctor before continuing use.
