Shea butter is an off-white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). Shea butter is a triglyceride (fat) derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It is widely used in natural cosmetics as a moisturizer, salve or lotion. Shea butter is edible and is used in food preparation in Africa.
