Raw African Unrefined and Handcrafted Shea Butter
3CAYG'S Yellow Shea butter is colored with the highly inflammatory and medicinal borotutu root (Pictured above). Ivory to light yellow is the natural color to shea butter but somehow yellow shea butter has become a popular choice for many US buyers. So much so, that many believe that this vibrant yellow coloring is the natural color of pure shea butter. There are a few ways to get this color, dyes, turmeric, borututu, red palm oil, etc. We choose to keep the coloring as natural as possible and borututu root is the traditional and most natural coloring agent for yellow shea butter. During production, the root is grounded with the shea nuts to give it its vibrant yellow coloring. The root carries its own set of beneficial properties and makes a great compliment to the effectiveness of the shea butter.
The scent of unrefined yellow shea butter is a roasted nutty scent at the peak of freshness. The scent naturally changes on shea butter as it ages.
Yellow shea butter is a vibrant yellow coloring due to the addition of borututu root.
