Shea Butter

Shea butter comes from the nut of the African Shea tree, and has been  prized for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. Our high quality Shea butter is organic, expeller pressed, and unrefined to maintain maximum theraputic properties.

Shea butter is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E, and F, phytosterols, cinnamic acid, and other vitamins and minerals. Benefits include:

  • Nourishes, moisturizes, and heals dry or irritated skin
  • Provides low-level UV protection (~ SPF 6)
  • Is a significant source of anti-inflammatory compounds (source), and may be beneficial in treating acne
  • Aids in skin's natural collagen production and cell regeneration
  • Softens and strengthens the skin, and reduces appearance of wrinkles over time

 

Shea butter is recommended for external use only. Perform a small skin patch test before using, or consult with a dermatologist, especially if you have an underlying skin condition. Avoid use or consult with an allergist if you have nut allergies.
