There is also hydrogenated shea butter . Shea butter is subjected to the process in order to solve the main problem - grains (grit), which are formed due to the crystallization process when shea butter is cooled too slowly. Hydrogenation removes the graininess of the oil and completely removes the unsaponifiable fraction, which makes it plasticine-like structure, like margarine. More and more cosmetic companies are using hydrogenated oil, but do not indicate it on the label. Usefulness? No, you haven't!
All other types of shea butter are separate fractions of the butter , which are obtained in production from the finished shea butter. They are convenient for cosmetic purposes because they are more convenient to incorporate into cosmetic formulations. Separate fractions of butter are liquid shea butter, water-soluble shea butter, sterol fraction.
