Know your ingredients - Shea Butter

Creamy shea butter. An ingredient processed in Africa from the nuts of the Karite tree, it is everywhere and in everything! There is good reason shea butter is so popular. The benefits of shea butter to skin and hair are no joke! 

Solid at room temperature, shea butter melts easily and is easily absorbed by the skin. It has mild natural anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Shea butter contains Vitamins A, E and F. It has mild UV protection and can restore your skin’s elasticity. This is beneficial to preventing and treating stretch marks.

Shea butter is known to soothe skin conditions like eczema, acne and dermatitis and is said to reverse early signs of ageing. The Vitamin E makes shea butter a potent skin brightener, treat hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone, gently and naturally. The fatty acids in shea butter have a healing effect on a number of skin conditions: sun burn, scrapes, rashes, insect bites and razor bumps.

It’s great for hair too. Is your hair a crown of thorns rather than your crowning glory?  Melt some shea butter and apply and show your hair who’s boss! Get your shea on this June. Try this amazing ingredient in our rich shea butter cream and many of our soaps and lotions.

In our formulas shea butter isn’t an after thought but a primary ingredient. That means when we say our products contain Shea we mean it!
