Referred by natural skin-care enthusiats as 'skin superfood' or 'skin's best friend', Shea Butter is a natural beauty ingredient used for centuries by the women of Africa to nourish their skin and hair. Shea Butter is a cream coloured plant-based fat that is solid at room temperature, has a soft-creamy texture, and a distinct nutty aroma. It is extracted from the nuts of the Shea (Karite) trees that are indigenous to Africa. Shea butter is an excellent all-natural moisturizer with skin nourishing properties. It is widely used in the cosmetic industry for enhancing skin and hair care products such as lotions, creams, and conditioners.

Benefits and uses of Shea Butter

Shea butter is extremely moisturizing and hydrating as it melts upon skin contact, is easily absorbed by the skin, and locks in moisture without leaving a greasy residue. Raw, unrefined Shea Butter is comprised of many skin beneficial properties. Rich in Essential Fatty Acids, primarily stearic and oleic acid, Shea Butter restores moisture and elasticity to dry and parched skin, and boosts cell regeneration. Shea contains allantoin, which acts as a skin conditioning agent that causes the keratin in the skin to soften, allowing the wounds, burns, and other skin irritations to heal more quickly.  Vitamins A and E present in the Shea Butter act as natural antioxidants that fight free radicals by preventing cellular damage caused by environmental factors. Vitamin A also helps to boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Shea butter is also naturally high in phytosterols which act as UV protectors to reduce damage from sun exposure.  

Shea butter is considered a cure-all butter for healing dry skin, insect bites, rashes, to sunburns and blemishes. Shea Butter is non-comedogenic and penetrates deeply into the skin and leaves a smooth, satiny finish on the skin.  It is an effective excipient to deliver bioactive ingredients to the skin epidermis and is often used in natural beauty products to fade fine line, dark spots, scarring and stretch marks.  Hence, it is also used as a base for many medicinal ointments for its purported anti-inflammatory properties.
