Shea Butter Benefits
* Moisturizing: Shea butter is one of the world's best all natural moisturizers. The moisturizers in Shea Butter are the same moisturizers produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin, so it is easily absorbed into your skin and doesn't leave a greasy residue or clog pores. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils. The high vitamin A and E content of shea helps to soften and protect skin against the environmental elements.
* Reduces Inflammation: Shea butter is rich in cinnamic acid and fatty acids like oleic acid, which help to reduce the effects of skin inflammation and aid in skin regeneration. Because of this, shea is known for its ability to speed the healing of minor wounds, rashes, burns, new tattoos, eczema and even acne.
* Skin Smoothing: Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction. Shea can also help boost collagen production and has been used for years as a natural wrinkle fighter. The rich antioxidant content of shea butter helps to restore skin elasticity making it an effective natural remedy for stretch marks.
