Hooray for Shea!
Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) in West Africa. High levels of natural anti-oxidants (A and E) and essential fatty acids (from stearic acid and oleic acid) found within the nut’s buttery contents have proven extremely effective for moisturizing and repairing damaged skin. Shea Butter works because it is able to penetrate the epidermis and provide a protective layer which traps water and keep the skin hydrated and protected from allergens.
Shea butter’s healing qualities include:
- Relieving Dry skin caused by Eczema, Psoriasis, and Dandruff
- Soothing Sun Burn
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks, scars and fine lines
Shea Butter also has Antimicrobial (used against bacteria and antifungals) and Anti-inflammatory properties
