Shea Butter itself is a solid oil but when it is lightly heated, it separates into its fractionated and unfractionated portions. The Shea oil is obtained as a fractionated "by-product" of Shea butter production directly from the seed.
For light moisturization, Shea Butter Oil proves to be a natural and effective way to relieve dryness. However, if deeper moisturization is needed, or if healing for specific skin condition is wanted, Shea Butter produces better results. This is because the healing factors are in both the fractionated and unfractionated components.
