What’s gloriously rich, smells delightfully earthy and can be smothered all over your hair and skin? It’s Shea butter, the ivory coloured fat (think good fat, very, very good fat), extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree.
Shea Butter can now be found in almost every beauty product and with good reason! Here’s 5 reasons why we salute this superfood for hair and skin.
It eases dry scalps and calms irritation caused by processing and dyeing hair. It also restructures fragile tresses and smooths frizzy strands. Need some nourishing and moisturising for your locks? Shea butter takes care of it.
Slather it all over and you’ll be pumping in pure fatty acid, collagen producing goodness. As it’s non-allergic it can be used to treat skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, dehydrated skin, diaper rash, insect bites, burns, stretch marks wounds, sunburn and muscle ache. As if that’s not enough it also reduces inflammation and acne and strengthens skin. Got rough skin on your feet? Apply Shea Butter consistently and you’ll soon see a visible improvement. Shea butter works from head to toe!
The words silky skin and Shea Butter make a perfect pair. Our whipped Shea butter simply glides on, moisturising whatever it touches and leaving you with smooth, soft, supple, velvety, glowing skin and wonderfully spoiled, lustrous hair.
Shea Butter has something for everyone! It’s gentle on babies, so you can use it as often as you like. Young adults can use it as a barrier against wintry elements and the sun’s UV rays (although you should still use sun protection as normal). On top of this it helps to prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines for those of us of a certain age (no more avoiding mirrors!) For guys, it’s great for preventing shave bumps and cooling skin after shaving.
5) It’s Bursting With Healthy Goodness!
It contains high levels of phyto-nutrients-vitamins A and E which keep skin strong and elastic. It also has Vitamin F which works as a rejuvenator. On top of this Shea Butter is high in minerals, triglycerides and fatty acids such as linoleic acid. This basically means that it’s loaded with good stuff!
