You should not purchase Shea Butter that has been altered. Altered Shea Butter has depleted the beneficial qualities of the natural Shea Butter and also destroys the vitamins and minerals naturally present in Shea Butter.
* The definition of Grade A varies widely in the industry. However, the consistent requirements for Grade A Shea Butter are:
- extracted using pure water
- passed safety testing and inspections
