Shea Butter is used in many natural skin care products, including body creams and hair conditioners. It contains vitamins A and E which nourish the skin and help keep it healthy and vitamin F which provides a degree of protection from the elements. Shea Butter body cream is used to combat dry, rough and chapped skin as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stretchmarks and scars. It can be used as an anti-inflammatory agent and its anti-microbial properties promote rapid healing of wounds. Some say it helps treat eczema and psoriasis. Shea Butter also acts as a natural sunscreen, providing some degree of protection from the sun. It is added to hair conditioners to protect against damage from the wind and sun. It adds moisture to dry or damaged hair without clogging the pores and is also a great treatment for dry scalp.
Our refined Shea Butter is great for cosmetics and soaps. After shea butter is extracted from the Shea nut the natural butter is filtered to remove any impurities, resulting in a creamy off white color and an ultra high quality pure product. The refined shea butter also has less odor, making it shea butter of choice for the soap making and personal care industry. This is definitely one of our best sellers. This product comes from Burkina Faso, Africa.
