Dear clients, the COVID19 epidemic has taken a hard toll (physically and mentally) on myself and on our employees. Online sales have skyrocketted and we have processed more than 10 times the orders we normally ship out since March. We have decided to take a much deserved break. We will resume operations on November 30th. We will still be taking orders and will respond to all emails but all orders will ship out on November 30th. We look forward to be back from our much deserved rest in full force.

Chers clients, l'épidémie de COVID19 a fait des ravages (physiquement et mentalement) sur moi-même et sur nos employés. Les ventes en ligne ont explosé et nous avons traité plus de 10 fois de commandes que nous expédions normalement depuis mars. Nous avons décidé de faire une pause bien méritée. Nous reprendrons les opérations le 30 novembre. Nous prendrons toujours les commandes et répondrons à tous les courriels, mais toutes les commandes seront expédiées le 30 novembre. Nous avons hâte de revenir de notre repos bien mérité en force.

Our organic shea butter (RDB) is fat that’s been extracted from shea tree nuts. It’s off-white or ivory-colored and has a creamy consistency that’s easy to spread on your skin. Most shea butter comes from shea trees in West Africa.

This organic shea butter is food grade so it can be used both for cooking and for cosmetic purposes.

Many of the health benefits of shea butter are gained when you use the product topically. The butter works as an emollient and can help to smooth and soften the skin. It also contains ingredients that may reduce skin swelling and may relieve symptoms in some people with eczema.

Fans of shea butter also claim that it can provide other benefits including relief from acne, muscle soreness, sinus infections, wound healing, hay fever, and arthritis. There is not enough scientific evidence to support these claims. However, research is ongoing and some studies have provided promising results for anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.

 

What does "RBD" mean?

  • RBD is an acronym, which stands for Refined, Bleached and Deodorized. As the organic standard prescribes there is no use of chemical bleach or any other artificial chemical for that matter used during the process.
  • "RBD" shea butter is dry steamed to deodorize while being carefully monitored to stay under 180 degrees Celsius. This neutralizes the majority of the strong taste and smell making ideal for cooking and use on the skin. This is not does not make the product inferior in any way.


Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
