Let's dive a little deeper...

Shea butter is an excellent emollient, moisturizer and anti-inflammatory ingredient emanated from the crushing and boiling of the Shea tree seeds. Shea butter enthralls rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy film. Nature's SPF butter has a unique ultraviolet protection property, offering up to SPF 6. Used often in cosmetic products and food products as a substitute for cocoa butter.


Shea butter, derived from the nuts of the shea tree, is a versatile and nourishing substance that brings several health benefits, particularly for the skin:


Moisturization

  • Shea butter is renowned for its exceptional moisturizing properties. Packed with fatty acids and vitamins, it provides deep hydration to the skin, making it a popular choice for combating dryness and preventing moisture loss.


Skin Nourishment

  • Rich in vitamins A and E, shea butter nourishes the skin, promoting a healthy complexion. These vitamins contribute to skin elasticity, helping to maintain a supple and youthful appearance.


Anti-Inflammatory

  • Shea butter contains cinnamic acid, which has natural anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it effective in soothing irritated or inflamed skin, making it beneficial for conditions like eczema and psoriasis.


Scar Reduction

  • The healing properties of shea butter can assist in minimizing the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Regular application may contribute to the gradual fading of scars and blemishes.




Sun Protection

  • Shea butter contains a low level of natural sun protection (SPF), providing some defense against harmful UV rays. While it's not a substitute for sunscreen, it can offer additional protection for everyday sun exposure.


Anti-aging

  • The combination of antioxidants and moisturizing elements in shea butter can aid in preventing premature aging. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.


Hair Care

  • Shea butter is not limited to skincare; it's also beneficial for hair health. It can moisturize the scalp, reduce dandruff, and improve hair texture and shine. The butter's emollient properties make it an excellent choice for taming frizz and promoting overall hair health.


Wound Healing

  • Shea butter's anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties contribute to the healing process of wounds, cuts, and abrasions. It can help soothe and protect the skin during the recovery phase.


When choosing shea butter, opt for the unrefined, raw, or organic varieties to ensure that you're getting the maximum benefit from its natural components. Incorporating shea butter into your skincare routine can contribute to overall skin health and well-being.



ADDITIONAL INFO:


How did shea butter get its name?

Our Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana, Africa. The Shea tree has been nicknamed the Tree of Life for its ability to help with numerous skin, hair, and health conditions. Raw Shea Butter is also known as Mother Nature's Conditioner for its exceptional moisturizing and softening properties.


What is the brief history of shea butter?

In the ancient era, when people didn't know the properties of Shea products, they used it for therapeutic treatment. In Cleopatra's Egypt, people carry Shea nuts in large mud jars from the western part of Africa. Because of the buttery and smoothness of the Shea nut extract, the therapy technique gives healing results.
