We are always touting here at Purely Shea that Shea Butter has been used for many years and is not a new trend. Often people think Shea Butter usage began around three or four years ago. Well we just did a Google patent search and saw alot of patents dating back to the 70's and 80's about Shea Butter!
One in particular that caught our eye was a patent issued to L'Oreal Cosmetics in 1984! It looks like this cosmetic company knew about Mother's Nature's best kept secret over 20 years ago. ( um...and it appears they tried to keep this secret to themselves :-)
There are alot more interesting Shea Butter patents we found. We'll post more soon.
