The Benefits of Using Shea Butter
The Shea tree, native to West Africa produces "women’s gold" or one of the worlds most precious oils. In Burkina Faso, communities refer to Shea butter as women’s gold for its unique skincare benefits and awesome healing properties. The oil extracted from the Shea fruit is churned into a thick hydrating butter that is used in various high end anti aging and moisturizing creams. However of all products, nothing tops pure organic 100 percent Shea butter.
Shea is rich in Vitamin E, which is vital to skin health and growth. Our bodies use vitamin E in its natural healing process. It provides moisture to the skin and encourages elasticity. This means that it allows skin flexibility, so that it can bend and stretch without breaking. The intense moisture helps to keep skin tight and looking young. This is why it is a popular active ingredient in anti aging products.
For the same reasons, Shea is also perfect for preventing as well as helping to heal stretch marks. It also works for scaring. Shea oil is a naturally moisturizing anti bacterial, which means you can safely use it on cuts, scrapes, and burns to prevent scaring.
Shea butter can also be used as a natural hair styling cream and for deep hair conditioning treatments. Its properties encourage strong, sleek strands of hair. It is highly moisturizing, and like skin, hair is far less likely to become brittle and break off when it is properly hydrated.
Because of its anti bacterial properties, Shea butter is the perfect moisturizer for people who suffer from dry skin and acne. It provides hydration and soothes red bumps. It cleanses while working to heal a break out without clogging pores.
Shea butter truly is a versatile substance as valuable as gold when it comes to skincare. Its natural, hydrating, and healing. Why purchase skin and hair products that are made of harmful chemical ingredients and Shea, when you can get all the benefits straight from the source.
