Biochemica® Shea Butter HMP is a special grade of shea butter which exhibits a higher than normal melting point. This is achieved via a proprietary fractionation process. Regular shea butter has a typical melting point range of 31º – 38º C; Biochemica® Shea Butter HMP has a melting point range of 40º – 45º C, making it ideal for applications where a high percentage of shea butter is used in a finished formulation, or simply when packaging shea butter in its pure form. In such formulations, use of Biochemica® Shea Butter HMP will prevent melting at high ambient temperatures (i.e., when shipping in hot summer months).
Shea Butter is well known to assist cutaneous dryness, dermatitis, dermatoses, eczema, solar erythema and superficial burns.
