Jedwards International, Inc. is a wholesale bulk supplier of Shea Nut Oil, a by-product of shea nut butter, obtained from the nuts of the Karite tree. Shea nut oil is produced by lightly heating shea nut butter to separate the fractionated and non-fractionated make up of the material. The fractionated material is then fully refined, resulting in a transparent oil with a pale yellow appearance.
Shea nut oil is an ideal ingredient used throughout the cosmetic industry in the manufacturing of skin creams, lotions and make-up. Its physical properties allow it to easily absorb into the skin promoting skin elasticity; and will not leave an oily or greasy residue typical of many oils. Shea nut oil is a great natural emollient and can be used to treat dry skin and hair. A number of companies are using shea nut oil in the production of their line of baby care products as well. It contains a high level of vitamins A, E, F and oleic fatty acid. Shea nut oil may help with skin irritations and is especially favorable for massage therapists in hot oil treatments.
This is a great oil for working into formulations where you need extra emollient properties of shea, but you require something liquid, rather than saturated. Great neutral odor, which doesn't interfere with scents added to products. Only con is that some bottles have been clear, where others have had more of a cloudy appearance. Did not impact final function.
I have a bottle of NOW Foods Shea Nut oil and loved it so purchased it wholesale here. This oil is nothing near the one from NOW Foods. This one is 100% unscented....it doesn't even smell even a little bit like shea and the consistency is different as well. Not sure I'm a fan tho I have not used it for anything yet. I will try another supplier next time to see if this is just normal. The price was the same as my other supplier so I can say that the price is fair.
