Vitellaria paradoxa, subsp. Nilotica Shea Butter
Cousin to the more recognized West African Shea Butter, the rarer East African Nilotica Shea Butter from Uganda provides superior benefits with a much more pleasant smell, a smoother application, and will not clog pores. NSB has a lower melting point and a higher percentage of oleic acid, thereby allowing faster skin and hair absorption. For formulations NSB is the superior choice: An excellent ingredient in any body and hair care product.
Focus on Formulation, Not Sourcing
Our industry-leading quality control process means you know exactly what goes into your formulation. We lab test every batch of oil and butter and share that batch-specific information with our clients upon request. Whether you formulate cosmetics from home or purchase for a personal care product manufacturer, we make sure your DLG ingredients are reliable, consistent, and pure.
