The primary use of virgin Shea nut butter in the United States is for cosmetic applications.  Virgin Shea Butter is an incredible emollient due to it's non-saponifiable components.  Namely it's unique fatty acid profile.  Virgin Shea  Butter is also thought to contribute to increased skin elasticity.
