Shea Nilotica or East African Shea is a premium shea butter which comes from the fruit of the Vitellaria Nilotica, and is softer in texture that West African shea with a mild aroma and light yellow colour, Shea Nilotica is one of the finest shea butters available. It has a significantly higher olein content and glyceride of oleic acid content making it softer and creamier than its West African counterpart. High in unsaponifiables, antioxidants and cinneamic acid, it is also known to be a natural sunscreen. Because it is smoother and more buttery than West African shea it is easily spreadable and readily absorbed into the skin and hair. This soft and fluffy shea Nilotica melts easily into the skin giving it intensive moisture, suppleness and silkiness.
