Mr. Ajibade shares an insight into Ori (Shea butter) and its benefits;
“Premium 100% natural Shea butter is derived from nuts of the Shea tree found all over West-Africa including Nigeria, Ghana and Burkina-Faso. A different species can be found in Uganda.
Shea butter is made up of cinnamic, oleic, palmitic and stearic acids and rich in Vitamins A & E as well as other vital nutrients. The stearic acid gives it a solid consistency, while the oleic acid influences how soft or hard the shea butter is.
It has been used over the centuries for both clinical and beauty purposes, no wonder Queen Nerfertiti of ancient Egypt acknowledged Shea butter as the secret of her beauty”.

The quality of Shea butter depends on the specie of nuts itself, and the methodology adopted in the production process. Exposure to environmental elements like sun and humid storage can also reduce efficacy of the butter.
Color is not a determinant of Shea butter`s quality as it can range from beige to golden yellow.
Shea butter is most potent for healing between 1 – 18months after production after which it is only effective as a moisturizer. It is best preserved in air-tight plastic containers in dark dry places.
