What is shea butter?
A fat extracted from the nut of a shea tree, shea butter is one of the most beneficial skincare ingredients. Not only is it a moisturizing wonder, but it’s also naturally rich in good-for-your-skin vitamins A, E and F.
What are the skincare benefits of shea butter?
- It softens and smooths. A spectacular moisturizer and hydrator, shea butter smooths over dry skin, cracked skin.
- And, it does so without the mess. We’ve all felt the oily side effects of some heavy-duty creams. Shea butter melts into skin fast, leaving a non-greasy protective barrier that seals in moisture.
- It puts a wrinkle in aging’s plans. Packed with natural acids that protect and nourish skin, studies show shea butter can reduce wrinkles, sagging eyes and dark circles.
- It can even heal. Remember those vitamins? Because it has vitamin E, shea butter can speed up the skin’s repair process. Sunburns, scars, stretch marks, rashes – it’s a versatile skin hero.
