Shea Butter is known for its moisturizing and highly effective emollient properties. Rich in vitamins and fatty acids, it penetrates deeply and leaves a smooth finish. Shea Butter can be used in a number of personal care products such as  body butters, lip balms, and as a moisturizing agent in soaps and shaving creams. It is recommended to be tempered then cooled to improve the texture of final products.
