Hexane Free Origins: Extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii), Shea Butter is prized for its moisturizing and revitalizing properties. It penetrates deeply, and its hydrating qualities soothe and refresh dry, chapped or sun-exposed skin. Indications: Earth�s Care Shea Butter absorbs quickly, is suitable for all skin types, and does not clog pores. Use it daily to keep skin soft, clear and smooth. It is also an excellent scalp and hair moisturizer. Because Shea Butter is a natural product, it can become hard and can change in appearance. This is normal. To restore to a pliable consistency, microwave for a few seconds in a microwave-safe container or place jar in a pan of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Warnings: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.
