Why is Shea Butter Golden/Yellow?
Shea butter is yellow in color due to the presence of carotenoids, which are pigment compounds that are found in plants. These carotenoids give shea butter its characteristic yellow color. The color of shea butter can range from pale yellow to more golden or reddish shades, depending on factors such as the variety of the Karite tree, the region in which the tree is grown, and the processing method used to extract the butter.
