Shea butter is extracted from the fruit of the shea tree found only in the wild in the wooded savannahs of West Africa. It can reach more than 12 meters high and can take up a width of 2 meters.
The fruit is fleshy, like a small avocado. Its sweet and edible pulp contains in its center a nut that when pressed gives shea butter. This butter is widely used for its many virtues for centuries in parts of Africa. It is also part of the Senegalese pharmacopoeia, where it is recommended as a decongestant to relieve sprains, aches and rheumatism.
