Shea butter comes from the seed from the nut of the Shea tree, found in Africa, technically named Butyrospermum parkii after Mr Mungo Park who is credited with discovering it in the 1800s. The fruit, or nut, of the tree is picked then dried and the fat is extracted from the seed by a process of boiling and pressure.
The resultant product is shea butter and it is in fact the extracted oils, or fats, of the Shea nut.
