What is Shea Butter?
Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree (Butyrospermum parka), which grows on the savannah of West Africa. The English name Shea comes from the Malian name “SII”, which means sacred. The Shea is a sacred tree and it is treated with great respect. The trees can grow up to 60 meters high and up to 200 years old. The tree does not start to bear fruit until after 20 years.
Shea butter for skin and hair care
The wealth of valuable ingredients, the unsaturated fats with a large proportion of the “irreconcilable” components, essential fatty acids, fystosterole, vitamin E and vitamin D, provitamin A and allantoin (as we have already mentioned a special miracle of nature) make Shea butter to a special skin care product. All these ingredients together make Shea Butter a superfood for skin and hair.
Best hydrating skincare product
Shea Butter is one of the best moisturizing, anti-aging regenerating and protective natural products in the world. It protects your skin against UV sunlight, the harsh climate, dehydration and other external influences. In addition, it strengthens your skin by stimulating collagen production. It makes the skin smoother, more nourished and radiant. So if you suffer from wrinkles, fine lines and / or crow's feet, Shea Butter will alleviate these problems by restoring and nourishing the skin.
As a baby care product
Because Shea Butter is all natural, so rich in beneficial ingredients and so moisturizing, it is an ideal product for baby care. It is natural and gentle for all skin types and particularly suitable for the delicate and sensitive skin of babies. It is also a perfect remedy for eczema or diaper rash for babies and children.
