BergaCare SB Shea Butter
Shea butter is a natural product extracted from the nut of the shea or karite tree. Because of its good miscibility with oils and other non-polar and medium-polar ingredients, shea butter integrates readily into almost any formulation. With its high percentage of oleic acid, stearic acid and unsaponifiable matter, shea butter enhances the skin compatibility and healing effect of cosmetic preparations, for instance in the field of baby care and body care products specially for dry skin.
