What is Shea Butter?

Shea Butter is derived from a nut of the Shea Tree native to West Africa.  It is known to have very low proteins which is why even though it comes from a nut it has no history of triggering allergies.  Many commercial shea butters are often adulterated with coconut oil, almond oil or other ingredients and to create ‘Body Butter’.  At Mt Royal spa was use raw shea butter because shea butter has so many benefits on its own it doesn’t need any additives.  We use shea butter treatments to condition hands and feet combined with a hot stone massage to provide incredible moisturizing to dry skin and other inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Let us reach for the shea butter to enhance your massage experience.
