Shea butter is an off-white or ivory-coloured fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, and for skin and hair related products (lip gloss, skin moisturizer creams and emulsions, and hair conditioners). Some of the isolated chemical constituents are reported to have anti-inflammatory, emollient and humectant properties. Shea butter has been used as a sun-blocking lotion and has a limited capacity to absorb ultraviolet radiation.
