Can you blend sheabutter with other ingredients?

Yes, Shea Butter may be blended with other ingredients, however, there is a give and take. By blending other ingredients with Shea Butter you may be lessening the nonsaponifiable fraction (aka healing fraction) of the Shea Butter or depending upon the method used in combining the ingredients, you may be destroying the healing fraction.

Shea Butter is found in many cosmetic formulas however the healing properties associated with these blends is usually non-existent. The moisturizing properties may still be present but even that fraction may be diluted to such an extent it becomes just an ingredient on a label.

The only oil we know of which can successfully be blended with Shea Butter without losing the healing properties associated with Premium Grade A Shea Butter is Argan oil. The Argan tree, sometimes called the cousin to the Karite tree (Shea tree), produces a seed from which Argan oil is extracted and has been used by the Berbers in the southwest region of Morocco for centuries.

Both oils have similar medicinal properties, however, the non-saturated fatty acid content of Argan oil is higher than Shea Butter and that factor makes Argan oil a liquid at "room temperature".

We have combined our Premium Grade A Shea Butter with our natural Organic Argan oil to make a fantastic hair moisturizer and conditioner as well as an incredible Anti-Aging Cream.

By combining the two oils we have created a creamier Shea Butter product with a lower melting point when applied on the skin. The result is simply incredible.

Both our Premium Grade A Shea Butter and natural organic Argan oil are non-comedogenic (will not clog the pores). The aroma is slightly nutty and dissipates in a few minutes.

We have added a hint of organic lavender essential oil to our Anti-Aging Cream for those customers that do not care for the natural scent of our Natural Anti-Aging Cream. Both are fantastic.
