Think all shea butter products are the same? Think again! In nature, there are two varieties of shea tree: the common vitellaria paradoxa of West Africa and the rare vitellaria nilotica of East Africa. The nuts from both trees can be used to make shea butter, but there's no comparison between the finished products. Richer in nutrients and far more luxurious, nilotica shea butter is a truly exotic, pampering treatment for the hair and skin. Slice of Nature was the first to bring East African shea butter to Amazon by developing exclusive fair trade agreements with growers in Uganda and South Sudan. Our rare African shea butter has been such a success that competitors have popped up all over claiming to sell the same formula.
