Why Every Woman Must Use Shea Butter

5 Shea Butter Benefits That Will Compel You To Use It On Your Skin & Face

How do you get great looking, great feeling skin without breaking the bank? The answer lies in shea butter.


 

Shea butter is extracted from the seeds of the fruit that grows on Karite trees, which are mainly found in Africa. It is in the form of solid fatty oil and in its raw form, looks like scoops of hard caramel ice cream. No wonder that certain communities use it even for food preparations.

In the world of beauty, shea butter has become widely popular for its extraordinary ability to not only protect the skin against everyday environmental damage, but also repair and renew it.

Here are some shea butter benefits that actually make a difference!

Shea Butter heals: Most soaps and oils convert into soap (saponification) when they come in contact with alkali. Shea butter does not as it contains oil soluble fatty acids and plant sterols such as oleic, palmitic, stearic and linolenic acids which stand their own ground. This intensifies its healing potential especially for burns, cuts, rashes insect bites and eczema. Not just that, shea butter is a great friend of athletes and sportspersons as it also eliminates toxins which cause muscle fatigue. So give yourself a good rubdown post your workout so as to not compromise on your workout the next day.

Shea Butter protects: The antioxidants in shea butter keep cells protected from damaging free radicals and other environmental hazards whilst cinnamic acid esters in the shea fat keep ultraviolet radiation at bay. Your skin will never look dull again.
