Originating from the Shea tree, shea butter is fat that is extracted through the nuts of the indigenous tree, commonly found in the East and West parts of Africa. With a content high volume in fatty acids and vitamins, shea butter is an excellent product for creating a smooth and long lasting soft texture for your skin.

A major component of shea butter is its stearic acid content. Stearic acid is a fatty acid that is helpful with the removal of bacteria and dirt from the surface of the skin. By Creating a waxy-like protective layer, it helps lock in dryness and moisture.

Benefits of Shea Butter on the Skin

Maintain oil balance:

Although rich in fatty acids which keep the skin moisturized  and bright, shea butter also contains high levels of linoleic and oleic acids which act as a counter balance on the skin, preventing excessively oily skin.

Anti-inflammatory properties:

Shea butter is commonly known for aiding in skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It interacts with inflammatory cells such as cykotines, small proteins that engage with the inflammatory responses of the body. The result of this interaction is a reduction in inflammation and slows down future production of inflammatory response.

Anti-oxidant properties:

Shea butter is high in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids which have been proven to reduce the appearance of scars and repair skin.

Anti-aging properties:

Shea butter helps maintain the elasticity in your skin because it contains essential fatty acids, vitamin A & E, which ensure that the skin is protected from the ageing process.
