What Is It:

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!

How to Use:

Use at night as the last step in your skin care routine. Also perfect for babies, eczema, irritated skin and dry parts like lower legs, feet, elbows and cuticles. It also makes an amazing deep conditioning treatment for your hair!

Natural Ingredients:

Organic and wildcrafted Shea Nilotica (Vitellaria Nilotica)

The BEST Vitamin C Out There!

I’ve tried several Vitamin C products with varying levels of success, but I get a GLOW from Kossma’s Purely Potent Serum. This product never irritated my skin and does the job better than anyone else. Not to mention, it makes my skin feel silky smooth instantly. All the warm feels on this one… do yourself a favor.

I have always loved using shea butter for many things but this is the best one I have ever used by far!

Nilotica + Squalane

I've had problems with acne since I was little. In hindsight the root cause was a gut issue but of course it was treated purely as a skin issue. I've been on many different kinds of medications, tried many products, and have had rounds of laser treatments (both med spas and plastic surgeon's office).

The abuse my skin/body has been through means my skin barrier is extremely damaged. I think it was sometime this summer that I started washing my face with just water most of the time and just a tiny (less than a pea size) bit of Burt's Bees if I wanted to try some kind of cleanser. When I ordered my Nilotica and Squalane, my sandpaper textured skin hurt because it was so dry. Applying makeup on top of it makes it look even worse. I looked like a molting reptile and I wish that were an exaggeration.

So I can assure you the reviews are true that the products start working immediately. I've only had them a week and I'm very very happy with the results already. The relief came right away and it feels so good on my skin. My skin doesn't look great yet, but my face no longer hurts from it being so dry and it's only been a week! I've used so many different products and I don't think I've ever purchased them more than once. I used to think it's because I can't stick to complicated routines. I think the truth is they weren't really working and were only making my skin worse and I didn't recognize it at the time. I mean, I used to have oily skin and now it's visibly dry.

If you have normal skin, these particular products do feel slightly oily, so they might be better for nighttime use if you're just looking to maintain your skin. But they are really amazing and nourishing. Seriously so thankful for Stephanie for making these simple yet powerful products.

best shea butter I've used

this shea butter is natural and most important to me-CLEAN. With shea butters I've used in the past, heavy metals are a concern. When I emailed Stephanie, she informed of her rigorous quality standards-I was impressed. This shea butter is incredible- it melts on your skin and isn't too greasy (a little goes a long way!). When I began to apply this as the final step in the Kossma beauty method, I noticed my skin quality became more even on my cheeks and forehead areas. I don't notice any odor with this-it is so natural. I look forward to buying another container in November.

Shea Nilotica Heirloom Shea Butter

This stuff is extraordinarily smooth and lacks the faint burned rubber smell of other shea butters I've tried. PLUS No Perfumes!!! That is huge for me!
