Shea butter originates from Africa, a plant fat and rich emollient, which penetrates through the dermis to the epidermis, the second layer of skin. Shea butter has powerful inherent properties including Stigmasterol, an ingredient helpful in aching, stiff joints. Furthermore, it improves micro-circulation, thereby reducing puffiness and protecting the skin via a natural SPF of 6 against UV rays. Shea Butter is exceptional in assisting those suffering with eczema, scars, burns, uneven skin tone and aging skin.
This natural fat obtained from the fruit of the karite tree is a valuable, nourishing addition to moisturisers for the reduction of wrinkles and to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against environmental aging. Shea butter is known to increase local capillary circulation, which in turn increases tissue re-oxygenation.
