Shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii) comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree, indigenous to Africa. Shea Butter contains around 60% fat which makes for a luxurious moisturising butter that deeply penetrates the skin and helps to reduce fine lines.
Shea Butter is known as a superfood for your skin and contains anti-inflammatory properties. A compound called “lupeol-cinnamate” has been found beneficial in reducing inflammation from skin rashes and conditions such as acne.
These healing properties of Shea Butter contain oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids along with other natural vitamins that make it deeply nourishing and moisturising for the skin. A must for sufferers with eczema, psoriasis and other similar skin conditions. With prolonged use your skin will become softer and stronger as it aids in collagen production.
Shea Butter is safe and gentle to use on children too.
