East Africa's Creamy Shea Butter: Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter is a premium, 100% cold pressed shea butter from the rare East African shea butter trees. This variety varies from West African shea butter several ways. The butter is naturally softer and creamier than West African shea butter. It has less stearin and higher olein and thus has a higher oil content than West African shea butter, which is waxier. The butter spreads smoothly on skin so it is easier and faster to apply. It naturally has little aroma unlike West African shea butter which is known for its pungent aroma. Shea Nilotik' shea butter is never refined or deodorized using high heat like white and odorless West African shea butter is. Shea Nilotik' shea butter is higher in vitamin E. It can be used as a high conditioner unlike West African shea butter which builds up a waxy residue. Shea Nilotik' shea butter is gentle enough to use as a facial cream and aids retention of moisture. It is estimated that women who sell their shea nuts make four times the amount of money as their Western counterparts who have to collect fire wood and water, dry and roast the nuts, shell them, and powder them before boiling the nuts in water and working the butter out of the paste using their arms. The butter is then filtered and fried to evaporate water. It is estimated the process takes 20 hours to make one kilo, but the women get less than a dollar per kilo. The women in Uganda are required only to sell their collected nuts to the mill in exchange for cash which they use to buy school supplies for their children, food and medical services. 

Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter Lotion: In spite of all the oils and butters introduced to the beauty market each year, none are more effective than shea butter for softening and protecting skin. Most shea butter moisturizers, however, contain no more than 5% shea butter. Early shea butter research showed that in order to be effective shea butter formulas needed a minimum of 20% shea butter, and we have been using a minimum of 20% shea butter in our moisturizers ever since. 20% virgin, cold pressed and non-deodorized Ugandan shea butter goes into every bottle of our rich and creamy lotion. Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter Lotion envelopes skin with a soothing, silky cocoon. Skin is protected from dehydration and chapping all day long. 

Shea Terra and Spring Water: How natural is your skin and body care really? Almost all skin and body care available are made with recycled municipal water. That's water from the tap which is recycled from sewage and bathrooms across America. In order to clean up polluted water several harsh chemicals including chlorine are used. This water contains pharmaceuticals such as anti-depressants and steroids. This is the water used in just about ALL skin and body care products produced in America. A believer in natural products since a child, Tammie formulated Shea Terra's very first products with pure spring water and continues to use only pure spring water when water is required today. We have years of records from the Virginia spring water companies that we have purchased from over the years. If natural products are not made with pure spring water, they are far from being natural. Yes, our spring water cost us far more than tap water, but your health is worth it to us. 

History of Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter:
Along the shea butter belt in the Sahel of Africa grows two varieties of shea butter. The harder, West African shea butter comes from the species Butyrospermum parkii. The soft, East African variety comes from the species Vitellaria nilotica. While the women in Uganda and Sudan have been extracting and cooking with their shea butter for thousands of years, the butter was little known out of its region. Just as formalities in the region were in place to introduce their creamy shea butter to the world, war broke out in the region. The Lord's Resistance Army in Northern Uganda formed as a guerrilla group to over turn the government. As the resistance movement lost traction men, women and children were stolen from the villages and forced to join the army. Children were forced to do unmentionable acts as women were subjected to abuse. Thousands of people fled the area and children marched to the city each night to sleep in the streets to escape kidnapping. Kony, now a war criminal, was eventually driven out of the area and into the Congo. It took years for the region to show signs of recuperating from the destruction of human life and property. As the residents rebuilt their lives the trade of Nilotik' shea butter revived. We were able to import our first shipment of Shea Nilotik' shea butter in 2003. Since this time a safe trade route has been established and Shea Nilotik' shea butter is making its way into many homes and shops around the country.

Love the lotion. My skin looks youthful and smooth

Nora Crane

This is the most effective moisturizer I've found for my dry skin. I live in the upper Midwest of U.S. and winters are brutal here. This is a fabulous product and I've been using it for years & years. Always a staple, always moisturizes. Thank you Shea Terra.

Gorgeous lotion

I’ve been using the organic Shea butter with Namibian marula for years as my primary after bath body butter. The lotion provides the moisture needed for moisturizing dry parts (feet, hands, calves) between baths. This is exactly what I’ve been searching for and I’m in love!!

Wonderful lotion

I've been using on my legs daily and it's completely stopped any itching, my skin feels softer, and also helps prevent static cling especially during the cooler months 😀

Cathy K
Lovely lotion!

Love the scent. Very nourishing for my dry skin yet not greasy at all

Try this!

I love this very emollient lotion. It goes on very nice and has a nice lite almond fragrance. Hydrating and not greasy. I have not tried the other fragrances with this 20% shea lotion but I am surprised there are not lots of great reviews!

I purchased several of your

I purchased several of your products for my 34 year old grandson. These included body wash and 3 different lotions. He loves them! No more itchy feet and surprisingly no perspiration odor even after playing basketball!! His skin feels wonderful and he keeps on endlessly thanking me. I also use your products and especially love your lotions! They are very rich.

Love this lotion!

I use this with the namibian marula oil after showers, and they work so well together! Both of these products make my skin feel super soft and hydrated well into the next day. Definitely recommend!

I’m addicted to this lotion !

I really love this lotion and am going to buy more in a few minutes. The scent is similar to almonds for me but it’s subtle enough to use with my perfume. The consistency is thick, but not so thick that I can’t apply it everywhere, if that makes sense. The pump makes makes me more consistent in using this which is good because my hands and cuticles get dry. My skins feels great and this product is absorbed really well after a few minutes without greasy residue. I have also bought the mango scent which is a very nice scent, but stronger. I will continue to use this lotion and will try other scents.
