Shea butter is very popular in West Africa, where it is used to nourish the skin and hair, as well as for personal care.
It's worth pointing out that you can read on the web that shea butter moisturizes the skin! This is incorrect: shea butter seals in moisture, not moisturizes the skin per se.
Adopted centuries ago by African women, shea butter has crossed borders to find its way into a variety of cosmetic products.
Miel Imperial offers shea butter from Mali, produced in cooperatives run by women whose know-how has been handed down from generation to generation.
Organic, raw and unrefined, discover this indispensable beauty product, a true source of benefits.

Rich in vitamin A and karitene, shea butter nourishes and repairs dry skin.

An excellent body care product, applied daily to clean, dry skin, shea butter will :
- Nourish dry, dehydrated skin,
- Repair skin damaged by pollution,
- Heal skin prone to acne, flaking or redness,
- Extend and enhance tanning,
- Keep skin moisturized and nourished,
- Restore elasticity and suppleness to dull, mature skin,
- Soothe skin prone to tingling sensations,

We also advise you to forget commercial products, which are full of chemical substances, endocrine disruptors and potential carcinogens. Instead, opt for our shea butter, guaranteed 100% natural origin.
It will be highly effective in relieving your children's diaper rash (skin inflammation on babies' bottom).
How to use Shea butter on the skin?
After every shower or bath, melt a dab of Shea butter in the palm of your hand, warming it as you go.
Once melted, apply generously to your body. If you want a flawless complexion, moisturize your face every evening: the butter's oily texture will deeply nourish your skin all night long, and the icing on the cake is that there's no need to rinse!
Good to know:
We've chosen to offer you Shea butter in its raw, unrefined form, to preserve all its cosmetic properties.
Genuine shea butter can be recognized by its strong scent and yellowish color.
While many brands offer refined versions of shea butter to remove its strong fragrance, you'll soon find that you can live with it.
Shea butter for hair care
Just as it repairs damaged skin, shea butter also cares for dry, brittle hair.
It restores shine, strength and health, and is ideal as a homemade hair mask.
It tames frizz, stimulates regrowth, repairs dull hair and prevents ends from forming.
Combined with plant substances such as coconut oil or aloe vera oily macerate, Shea butter deeply repairs and enhances hair.
Recommended for :
- Dry hair,
- Afro hair,
- Split ends,
- Damaged by repeated coloring,
- And recurrent blow-drying or straightening.
Shea butter can be used either as a hair mask or as a serum after washing.
The more brittle, dry or dehydrated your hair is, the longer you'll need to leave the butter in - at least two hours.
Whisk a tablespoon of Shea butter with a tablespoon of Coconut oil or another vegetable oil of your choice, and apply the mixture to wet hair to facilitate application.
Cover your head with a warm towel and leave on.
If you want to restore shine and strength to your hair, leave the mask on overnight, and repeat at least once a week.
If you just want to nourish your ends and prevent split ends from forming, put a dab of shea butter on the ends of your hair before bed, and put on a protective hairstyle (kardoun, braid, silk cap or pillowcase).
Good to know:
You can perfume your Shea butter hair mask by adding a few drops of essential oil (beware of contraindications: pregnant women, breast-feeding, allergies...) depending on hair type.
We recommend Ylang-Ylang essential oil, which is excellent for dry hair.
