The Shea tree is a magical tree, especially for women, and is known as the "King of the Savannah" in Africa. It is a sacred tree, which should never be cut down or damaged. Women are considered its guardians and collect the large nuts that yield shea butter and oil after processing. Traditionally, shea butter and shea oil, which are rich in fatty acids, help nourish and protect the skin.
