If you suffer from dry skin, you likely have a bottle of shea butter somewhere. If not, we’re here to talk a little more about the moisturising benefits of shea butter. With its high concentrate of fatty acids and vitamins, shea butter is our number one choice when it comes to softening the skin. And that’s only one reason why shea is one of the top choices when it comes to skin and hair care. With anti-inflammatory properties, shea not only conditions the skin, but can reduce premature facial lines and wrinkles, and soothe skin conditions such as eczema.
In its natural form, shea butter is a plant lipid derived from African shea tree nuts. Bursting with essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins, shea butter is hydrating, plumping and soothing.
Today, shea butter is found in a number of body care products although it can be used on it’s own! Having tested ourselves, shea butter is solid at room temperature and therefore can be a little hard to spread if not blended with other ingredients.
