Natural Sourcing Adds Nilotica Shea Butter

May 2, 2007

Natural Sourcing added Nilotica shea butter to its line of nutritive, specialty butters for cosmeceutical use. Nilotica shea butter is a highly nourishing ingredient that is remarkably effective in healing dry and cracked skin, eczema, psoriasis and sun-damaged skin. It possesses a high content of unsaponifiable fatty acids, giving it the ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin.

Nilotica shea butter helps combat the signs of aging and can reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It moisturizes the lips and repairs brittle, damaged hair. Nilotica shea butter may also help to protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration. Nilotica shea butter is an anti-inflammatory and is a beneficial ingredient in formulations intended to reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains.

Nilotica shea butter is produced in Northern Uganda. It is superior in texture, nutritive value and aroma than shea butter produced in West Africa. Nilotica shea butter offers a significantly higher content of olein, a glyceride of oleic acid. Nilotica shea butter, therefore, is softer and creamier than West African shea butter, and it is more readily absorbed into the skin and hair. Nilotica shea butter also possesses a lighter, more pleasant aroma than West African shea butter, according to the company.
