     Discover the amazing, rich and creamy properties of a rare shea butter found only in secluded areas of East Africa. This anti-aging wonder cream is rich in age-defying vitamins A & E. Velvety soft, this butter luxuriously caresses delicate facial skin and melts into the body providing healing, anti-aging nourishment. Sustainably collected and naturally extracted, this butter goes through no refining yet its aroma is subtle in comparison to its West African counterpart.
     Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is so gentle and pure that it is a must have to protect delicate baby skin. Baby lotions and oils (except all natural ones) contain harsh chemicals, fragrances and dyes. Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is a pure, protective emollient straight from nature. Shea Nilotica Shea Butter keeps babies skin dreamy soft and protects against irritation and chaffing.
     Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is produced by the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative in Northern Uganda. Many of the women have escaped the hands of their kidnappers from the rebel army. Some were even been kidnapped as young girls. Some have lost many of their family members, including their husbands and children. The Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative gives these women an opportunity for independence that most women in Africa will never get. By selling their shea butter to Shea Terra Organics the women earn up to eight times what their western counterparts get for their shea butter. The women then use the money to feed, educate and get medical services for their children. Some women have taken on orphaned children after losing their own to the war, and are now able to care for them. Many of the women have bought their own small homes, in cash, built for them by the project.
     Shea Nilotica grows in green areas which receive far more rain than the dry savannahs where western shea butter grows. The women care for the shea trees and collect the nuts of the fallen fruits which they winnow and allow to sun dry. The nuts are then sent to the mill where they are crushed into emollient, soft butter. While women in western Africa will spend hours producing small amounts of shea butter, the women of the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative have been blessed with a mill to do the work for them, saving them hours of back breaking work while producing a superior quality butter. The women are paid premium for Shea Terra Organics' Shea Nilotica Shea Butter, and the cooperative have set the prices so that the women receive eight times what women in western Africa receive. By purchasing Shea Nilotica Shea Butter you are not only doing a great service for your skin, you are changing the lives of women and their children forever.

Why is shea nilotica superior to other shea butters? Shea nilotica is superior to West African shea butter in some ways and not so much in other ways. The two butters complement each other for premium skin care maintenance. Shea Nilotica is higher in olein than West African shea butter, and thus it is less waxy. Overtime, West African shea butter can build up a waxy film. Alternating the two decreases this effect. Selling and using both butters for many years, we have noticed that Shea Nilotica is not as healing as West African shea butter. However, it is gentler on the face where we recommend it the most. It also is much easier to spread making it more likely that a person will use it on larger areas of the body more often.

true to its word
  True to the product description, this shea butter is not hard, waxy, or strong-smelling like some shea butters. It has a mild, pleasant scent and is creamy and easy to spread. I press a thin layer into my or my son's skin and it does absorb fairly quickly. I also put a thicker layer on my chapped nipples from breastfeeding, and I put a separate container on the changing table to apply thickly as a simple diaper rash balm. No strong fragrances or irritants like so many nipple and diaper products, and no beeswax, which I appreciate being a vegan.

The best
  This is the best shea butter for the face. It melts on, around eyes, and heals and moisturizers. Great for layering with oils in winter.

Simply the best 100% Shea Butter on the market!
  I’ve paid four times as much for Perlier 100% shea butter and it simply doesn’t hold a candle to Shea Terra’s 100% shea butter! This is simply the best shea butter avaliable on the market! If you want the best, you’ve found it!

Wonderful!
  This butter is an excellent moisturizer. I need something for combination skin for the face and previously only found creams that were quite greasy. This is not greasy at all after it sinks into the skin. I use this on face and body, highly recommend.

Shea Nilotica East African Shea Butter
  This is one of the best skin products I have ever used! It keeps your skin hydrated for hours and may be used on the face and body. A little goes a long way, so the jar lasts months and months. Great product!

  My daughter gave me some of the Nilotik Shea Butter and I just had to have some more. I use it on my face before going to bed. It is great to use on my cuticles, it keeps them soft .

GREAT STUFF!
  I have recently begun to use "natural" products and came across the Shea Terra site. This particular shea butter is just right, not too hard and not too soft. It has a slight natural fragrance which I like very much. My skin drinks it in and I wish it came in a larger size! I'll have to keep on top of this so I don't run out!

LOVE
  I really like this stuff. It is very creamy and just sinks into my skin. I use it every night on my face after my Shea Terra oils. It helps with fine wrinkles and helps lighten dark spots.
