What's the difference between your Gold and Ivory Shea?

The difference in colour is merely attributed to the region in which the shea butter was extracted and can also be based on the season and production methods. The same amazing skin health properties remain, regardless of the colour, however, depending on your personal usage of the butters you may prefer one over the other. Both are rich in Vitamins A and E and work wonders for multipurpose moisture.

Ivory shea butter is from Ghana and can be crumbly in texture. It has a nutty vanilla scent... it's perfect butter for keeping small areas such as the lips, hands and feet moisturised on the go.

Gold Shea butter is from Nigeria and has a more smoky, earthy smell remnant from the roasting process of the Shea fruit and waxy in texture. It can be seamlessly smoothed into larger areas of the body as well as being the quintessential weapon against dry, flaky and itchy scalps.
