Shea Butter Skin Care Benefits:
Originating from Western Africa, shea butter is harvested from the nuts of the Shea tree. Appearing in numerous skin remedies, shea butter serves to be one of the most versatile ingredients for skin maintenance. Its high composition of unsaturated fats and fatty acids make shea butter products the ideal remedy for protecting and relieving dry skin. 1
In addition to fatty acids, shea butter lotion also contains high traces of tocopherol, which constitutes a high amount of vitamin E. Tocopherol primarily serves as an antioxidant, working to neutralize free-radicals that are present in the environment. This helps to intrinsically reduce levels of oxidative stress and maintain the integrity of skin molecules. Furthermore, both shea butter’s tocopherol and fatty acid concentrations help to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier. This improves moisture-retention and reduces water loss, thus enhancing the skin’s overall quality and appearance. 1 2 3
