Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) July 10, 2007

The African Store (TAS), (http://www.theafricanstore.org) offers discounted 100% pure, hexane-free, and unrefined natural organic Shea Butter from Ghana. The discount is to enable us to market our top-quality shea butter en-mass while making this "African Gold" available to everyone this summer season. Our current Shea Butter stock, which was extracted in April 2007 without the use of harmful chemicals and fillers leaves you with the best natural skin care product available. Unlike refined Shea butter, which has been bleached and refined with various chemicals to produce more than the usual thirty-three percent shea butter from the shea nut, our new unrefined shea butter is chemical-free and has all its vital nutrients, aroma, and healing properties intact.

Commercially processed shea butter is sometimes refined using fuller's clay and a vacuum extraction method to remove unpleasant aroma found mainly in unrefined shea butter. The aroma of unrefined shea butter disappears within minutes as the butter absorbs into the skin, leaving the skin silky smooth.

Shea butter, which is known commercially as Butyrospermum Parkiican, can be used as a moisturizer and an emollient. It is also a known anti-inflammatory agent. It can be used in the treatment of fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, acne, severely dry skin, blemishes, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretch marks, wrinkles and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis, among other skin conditions. Shea butter also provides natural UV sun protection ranging approximately up to SPF 6.

Shea butter can be found in many high end moisturizing skin products but they are usually three percent of the product, leading to low healing effect on the skin or hair. It is also used in hair conditioners to add and maintain moisture in dry, brittle hair, in addition to revitalizing, repairing and preventing breakage. Shea Butter is also used in cooking and other ceremonies in most West and East African countries.

Shea Butter is definitely important to every skin -- sensitive and non-sensitive skin alike because it has natural active compounds that are not found in other skin care products like night creams, eczema creams, wrinkle creams, or even anti-aging creams. When applied, dry hands and skin are new again within seconds.

Shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa and later in Europe to fight a multitude of skin conditions, and internal illnesses. Shea Butter has been clinically proven to decrease the appearance of face lines and wrinkles.

More about Shea Butter from The African Store:

The African Store deals only with 100% pure and unrefined Shea Butter. Unrefined and pure Shea Butter is different because it retains most of its rejuvenating, antiseptic, and healing qualities unlike the refined Shea Butter, which loses most of these properties during the production process. This involves cheap solvent extraction that strips down most of the properties of Shea Butter.

Shea Butter from The African Store provides immediate moisturizing, soothing, protection for the skin due to its high content of unsaponifiable fats and vitamins. Shea Butter protects against inflammations and UV rays due to its high content in cinnamic acid and it helps prevent certain sun-caused skin allergies due to its latex contents. The use of Shea Butter on small cuts and wounds enables the skin to heal faster and to prevent major scars from appearing. The circulation of capillary and regeneration of the skin cells by Shea Butter helps make this rapid healing possible. Shea Butter works wonders on stretch marks, dry hair, dermatitis, diaper rash, eczema, burns and sunburns during summer, acne, dry skin, sore and aching joints and muscles, rheumatism, and many more. Immediately after application, there is a tingly sensation that comes with Shea Butter. Small dab of Shea Butter in and around the nostrils helps reduce or stop nose irritation due to allergies and cold. The protective firm from Shea Butter also helps keep the skin warm during the winter cold and wind. Above all, Shea Butter has been clinically proven to contain anti-aging properties.

Unlike most crops, the Shea nut that produces the Shea Butter grows naturally on its own. Every attempt to alter its growth and quality by scientists has failed, leaving us with high quality natural skin care product and limited supply sources. This explains why most cosmetic companies use between five and thirty percent of Shea Butter on their cheap products. The Shea (Karite) tree grows mainly in West African countries like Ghana and Nigeria. It has a life span of two centuries and can grow up to twenty meters high. After blooming from June to July, it bears fruits that fall to the ground when ripe. The fruit contains the nut, which is then boiled to remove the Shea nut that produces Shea Butter. The Shea nut is dried in the sun, cracked open and then pounded to release the Shea Butter from the Shea nut. The content is boiled and stirred over a long period on firewood. The Shea Butter is stirred until its colour turns buttery. The Shea Butter is poured into containers to cool off and then sold locally or shipped worldwide.

Our Shea Butter comes straight from Africa, ready to be used.

Along with Shea Butter, The African Store also carries pure traditional Black Soap from Ghana and the world-famous Dudu-Osun African Black Soap from Nigeria. We also carry pure, food-grade cocoa butter and fragrance body oils for men and women.
