Inkuto Shea Butter
Inkuto pure unrefined shea butter comes from
the seeds of wild shea trees scattered throughout the fields and forests of the
savannah areas of Ghana in West Africa. The moisturising and healing properties
of shea butter have recently been discovered by the western cosmetics industry,
but shea butter has been an integral part of African pharmacology for centuries.
The protective and emollient properties of shea butter are most valued for skin
care. In Ghana, shea butter is applied to the skin and hair as a moisturizer
and is used to protect the skin from the hash weather.
Shea butter is also one
of the main ingredients in some traditional black soaps.
Inkuto African Black Soap
Inkuto’s pure, unscented, traditional African Black Soap also comes from
Ghana. Our black soap is made from roasted cocoa (chocolate) pod and/or
plantain skin ashes mixed with pure coconut and/or palm oil. It leaves the skn
smooth and soft, and also works particularly well with moisturizing pure Inkuto
Shea Butter. Raw black soap is prized for its quality antiseptic properties and
for its gentleness on the skin and hair and we are happy to bring this to you.
