    Brief History:

    It is recognized that the Pharaoh Nefertiti, the queen of ancient Egypt thousands of years ago, attributes her great beauty to the use of Shea Butter and its use extends to our days in the best cosmetic formulas.

    It is made from the fruits of a sacred tree called Shea. This tree grows wild in the savannahs of West Africa and is collected only by women following an ancestral ritual. This type of local handicraft production, managed by women's cooperatives, is the engine of the economy and the livelihood of miles of families in West Africa.

    ¡Mejor, imposible!

    La compré para mi pequeño, pues se le irritan los labios y la nariz cuando está con mocos. Había probado con varios aceites y cremas, y encontré una con karité, pero no era puro. La manteca de Maison Karité es la solución definitiva porque con usarla un par de veces, notamos la diferencia.

    Hidratación y nutrición para todo

    Utilizo esta manteca de karité desde hace muchos años. Antes solía comprar los botes de 500g porque la usaba para todo el cuerpo y también para la cara y el pelo. Como mascarilla capilar es muy buena! Impregnar el pelo seco en ella, dejar actuar toda la noche o un par de horas y lavar normalmente. Se nota mucho la suavidad en el pelo. Y como hidratante corporal y facial, la siento muy nutritiva. A mí piel le gusta mucho. La recomiendo 100%. Y además, el proyecto de Maison Karité es muy necesario para este mundo en que vivimos.
