Shea Butter Benefits
- Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
- Reduces Inflammation: A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with 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.
What Kind of Shea Butter is Best?We only use raw, unrefined, Grade A Shea butter. There are many refined Shea butters that are odor free and bleached to be completely white, but the refining process removes some of the beneficial properties. We purchase our Shea butter from a woman own and operated coop in Ghana West Africa. Please contact us directly to order raw unrefined unbleached, organic grade "A" Shea Butter. We supply for personal, in small quantity use and wholesale in larger volume.
