Shea Butter Products

The Shea tree grows wild on the savannah in several of the West African countries like Ghana, Nigeria and Mali. It can grow up to 20-25 metres high and has roots that burrow 20 metres deep, enabling it to withstand long periods of drought.

The first fruits appear after 8-12 years and peak productivity is reached when the tree is about 40 years old although it can continue to bear fruit for up to 150 years.

Each tree produces approximately 50kg of fruit every year. The Shea tree’s fruit (and its stone, or nut) is an important raw material for West Africa and for hundreds of years the local people have used it for food, medicinal, decorative and cosmetic purposes and as a protection against the sun and bad weather.

Indigo Herbs is delighted to offer Shea Butter Oil, an excellent oil for dry and damaged skin that is rich in skin boosting vitamins and fatty acids. It also contains 5-10% phytosterols, which stimulate cell growth.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Shea Butter can be applied directly to the skin as a soothing, hydrating moisturiser or added to natural skincare products. It can also be used on the hair and scalp to nourish lacklustre hair and provide relief from a dry, itchy scalp. 

  • All ingredients produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Shea Butter is extracted using the “cold pressing” method. Plants and plant parts are placed in a spike-filled container and slowly punctured. The cold press machines also utilise centrifugal force to help separate the oil from the rest of the plant pulp and liquid. The puncturing and spinning process releases the oils, which are then collected and bottled resulting in 100% pure, cold pressed butter. 

Keep away from eyes. Not to be ingested.
