Natural Essence - about Shea Butter - skin care products

What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is one of nature's greatest gifts to moisturize and heal the skin. A natural fat extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree which begins to bear fruit after about 15 years; and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts with a high content of un removable fatty acid, it is an excellent ointment base, has an unusually high content of oil unsaponifiable matter far exceeding that of cocoa butter. Shea Butter protects the skin from the sun and help to ease superficial skin irritation. It leaves the skin feeling soft and well moisturized, yet not greasy. Also effective in treating general dermatitis, dry scalp, eczema, dry skin redness, chapping or sunburn, as well as for helping to keep skin supple during pregnancy. Additionally, it makes a good unflavored and unscented lip balm.

What are the benefits of Shea butter?

Shea Butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E help maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. They are particularly helpful for sun damaged skin. They help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator.

Shea Butter provides moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairing and protecting against weather damage, dryness and brittleness. It also absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp to rehydrate without clogging pores. It is particularly beneficial for processed and heat-treated hair. It is an excellent treatment for dry scalp. It restores luster to damaged hair.
