Applications
Shea XP is suitable for all types of skin care creams and lotions, as well as in anhydrous products such as ointments, balms and body butters. The superb skin feel makes it especially suitable for sensitive applications and product enhancements. Shea XP can be formulated into rinse-off applications, nutritive cleansing and hair care products. It is also an ideal emollient for color cosmetics due to excellent compatibility with other emollients, waxes and oils. A 40 percent concentration of Shea XP meets the OTC monograph as a Skin Protectant, allowing for a silkier skin feel in topical ointments.
