This butter is extracted from the Shea nut ans is a distinct yellowish in color. Natural Shea butter always has a characteristic odor.
Skinlicious Soaps only uses unrefined, undeodorized Shea butter from Ghana. Any time extra processes of refining or deodorizing are introduced, extra chemicals also need to be introduced. We don`t see the point. Natural Shea butter is gorgeous on the skin, but USE VERY, VERY little. See your thumb nail? About an EIGHTH of that is already too much. When we say VERY LITTLE, we mean VERY LITTLE!!
