Shea Butter Free Natural Skin Care
According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma Immunology, although shea is a nut, and the butter is derived from the nut, shea butter does not likely cause an allergenic risk to consumers including individuals with pre-existing peanut or tree nut allergies.
That being said, much of the testing has been done using "refined shea butter." Refined shea nut butter contains little if any residual food proteins that are often the cause of allergic reactions. The refining process removes food proteins from the finished product.
At Chagrin Valley we use high quality, naturally extracted, unrefined, virgin shea butter. Unrefined shea butter will contain the proteins missing from refine shea butter.
If you or someone in your family has any problems with tree nut allergies or other sensitivities PLEASE do an allergy patch test before using any new products to be safe.
