Also common are small fragments of shell and/or plant fibers. Shea Butter is a soft solid at room temperature.

Shea Butter possesses a characteristic odour, which could be described as rich, and slightly nutty.

Uses: 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.
