Why is Organic Essence Shea Butter white?
Organic Essence shea butter is produced in Ghana by a community of women who gather and crack the nuts with rocks, crush them with a mortar and pestle, roast the nuts and then grind them by stages into a paste - all this by hand, and using traditions and tools that have been handed down for hundreds of years. They knead the paste by hand and add water to separate the curd-like butter oils, which float to the top and are removed - then melted again, skimmed off the top, and left to cool and harden. In this process, which utilizes clean water, all debris and dirt are removed from the shea butter. Different regions of Africa from east to west produce shea butter in a variety of shadings. The color of the shea butter varies from white to golden to darkish tan depending in its source. Traditionally, the women form it into balls which are placed in baskets which they weave by hand.
The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients, INCI, is a system of names for waxes, oils, pigments, chemicals, and other ingredients of soaps, cosmetics, based on scientific names and other Latin and English words. To be in compliance with the INCI nomenclature standards, Organic Essence could either name their proprietary blends “par fume”, “fragrance” or “flavors”. Organic Essence prefers “flavors” because “par fume” and “fragrance” almost always are chemical blends. Whereas, “flavors” are a more harmonious compliment for Organic Essence mixtures.
