Why is Some Shea Butter Yellow? In West Africa there is a tree that has been used for centuries to make teas and topical preparations that will help detox and heal inflammations. The tree is called Borututu Tree, and is what gives Yellow Shea Butter the yellow color. Butter obtained as such is raw/unrefined Shea Butter, which has pale-yellow color and nutty aroma. To enrich the Raw Shea Butter with extra nutrients, Borututu Roots are added during production process. This gives darker yellow natural color.
Yellow Shea Butter is nutrient rich, packed with vitamins and antioxidants. It is effective in deeply moisturizing the skin and to help repair severely dry or cracked skin.
