Shea Butter is a natural ingredient that comes from shea nuts. They help the skin with its moisturizing and emollient properties.
Why We Love Shea Butter
Shea butter is very thick and solid at room temperature but has a buttery rich consistency that makes it ideal for use as a natural eye cream, lip balm, or body butter. Many studies show that it is especially good at penetrating the skin and contains 60% fat, making it highly emollient. Shea butter does more than moisturize, it works as an anti-inflammatory and as a rejuvenating cream.
Shutting Down The B.S.
To some people, shea butter is overrated and it's common to think that Vaseline is just as good for hair and skin. The reality is that certain products like Vaseline often have harsh ingredients (like mineral oil from petroleum) that can dry your skin and hair out and can actually be counterproductive to your hair's health and growth. Shea butter can be found at affordable prices and is definitely worth it!
