    HOW TO USE
This is not your mama's shea butter. Shea Nilotik's Cold Pressed Shea Butter is the queen of all shea butter. USDA-certified organic Shea Nilotik' Cold Pressed Shea Butter is far superior to any other shea butter on the market. Shea butter trees in Uganda produce a different variety of shea butter than shea trees found westward. The nuts naturally produce a butter that is much softer with a pleasant, earthy aroma. The wild nuts are collected by the women from the communal lands and sold to a Ugandan-owned mill where it is cold pressed under meticulous conditions.

The women earn a decent amount of money for selling the nuts they have collected, and this is oftentimes the only form of cash the women will ever receive. This cash allows them to send their children to school and purchase school supplies as well as food and medicine. The butter itself is very high in pro-vitamin A and vitamin E. It is very soft, thus easy to spread from head to toe. The butter is not only good for vanishing dry skin, but it is also good for stretch marks, lips, wrinkles, hands, feet, crow's feet, and conditioning hair as well. 

In stark contrast, despite claims of fair trade, the butter produced in West Africa is neither fair nor hygienic. In West Africa, women must collect nuts, separate them from the fruit, break open their hard shells, decor the nuts, dry the nuts, roast them, and manually crush them into powder, before.... walk for miles to collect firewood and water, dragging the firewood and water to the production site, boil the nuts for several hours, use their arms as human blenders for several hours to get the butter to separate from the nut paste, strain the nut paste, fry the nut paste for several hours to get the water to evaporate, strain the butter, and then fill into containers to cool.

Often time this butter is shipped to Europe where it is put under extreme conditions to deodorize and bleach it. This white butter, often times listed as certified organic, is found in most shea butter products today. Some of the West African shea butter actually have Fair Trade certification believe it or not. If one can purchase West African shea butter in the market for $1-$2 an lb. from middlemen, then how much would the women be getting for their butter? Women in Morocco go through a similar process to make argan oil, although they do not boil it. However, women in Morocco make about 15-20 times more making argan oil by hand than the women in West Africa make for their shea butter

Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter is the natural choice of shea butter for those looking for high-quality shea butter produced under hygienic conditions. The Ugandan-owned mill that presses the butter is food grade. Shea Niloitk' Shea Butter is actually food-grade shea butter in its raw state from the mill. The butter never goes to Europe for refining, yet does not have a strong, undesirable odor. Shea Nilotik' Shea Butter can be used all over the body and hair and is even safe for babies and animals.

Absolute Go-To

Honestly this butter has no business smelling as good as it does. It's my hands down go to for winter -- thick enough that it keeps you warm and moist but smooth enough that it spreads easily. I've tried a number of the Shea Terra scents but Namibian Marula IS IT. Not too strong but not absent, warm but overly sweet, light but not floral. Perfection.

Use daily/nightly

This is the first product I purchased from SheaTerra and I've been buying ever since! 98% of what I use is from SheaTerra and I love it all! I've used this on my hands, arms, legs and feet every night for years and I have very few dark spots on my hands and my skin is always smooth. A definite daily go to!
