Shea Nilotica is a rare heirloom variety of Shea Butter that only grows in one part of the world; Eastern Uganda along the Nile River. Due to its high olein content, it's much softer than traditional shea butter and absorbs better into the skin with a lovely natural aroma. It's high in skin-loving vitamins A, E and K along with many other nourishing compounds you won't find in other shea butters. Nilotica has a unique silky soft texture that melts into skin without any heavy, waxy residue like traditional shea butters have. It's lighter, smoother and simply luxurious!
