WHY IS SHEA BUTTER GOOD FOR YOU?
Shea butter is a common ingredient we see in cosmetics. It has been used for many centuries because it contains a high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins that works wonders in conditioning our skin.
Here are other top reasons why you should start including shea butter in your regular skincare routine.
Shea butter works well on all skin types
Although it is considered a tree nut product, shea butter is low in proteins that may trigger allergies. It does not have any chemicals that may irritate or dry out the skin making it perfect to use on almost all skin types.
Shea butter is a great moisturiser
Shea butter contains linoleic, oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids which have amazing moisturising effects. It won’t leave an oily effect because it is easily absorbed leaving the skin feeling smooth and deeply moisturized.
Shea butter is a great antioxidant
It contains essential vitamins such as Vitamins A and E. These vitamins protect your skin from free radicals to avoid premature aging and dry skin.
Shea butter is anti-inflammatory
Shea butter aids in producing cytokines and other inflammatory cells that help minimize irritation caused by nature or other skin issues such as eczema and fungi-related skin diseases. It also helps prevent acne as it restores the natural balance of oils in the skin.
