Extracted from the nut of West Africa's karite tree, shea butter is one of nature's best beauty gifts. It is incredibly rich in unsaturated fats, fatty acids, vitamins A, E and D, and antioxidants, making it an all-round natural skin care product. In Africa, shea butter is considered sacred because of its power to heal, renew and protect the skin (and hair) against harsh climates.
Thanks to its vitamins and minerals, this body butter can nix and fix a range of skin concerns. First and foremost, it is a moisturiser and protector. It protects skin from UV sunlight, dehydration, and pollution. It also strengthens skin by stimulating the production of collagen, leaving it more nourished and radiant. Shea butter is an anti-ageing agent: since it's so hydrating, it reduces the appearance – and onset – of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Because it's gentle, pure shea butter is a great non-toxic baby care product. Use it to treat diaper rash, and to nourish your bub's skin.
While shea butter is best known for its skin care benefits, it's a body healer too. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it can soothe irritated skin and treat eczema, psoriasis, rashes, bites, and minor cuts.
