What is shea butter?
Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree, comes from West and Central Africa and has a high concentration of fatty acids and an ivory colour. It has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries due to its moisturizing effects and its ability to act as a refatting agent, restoring lipids and rapidly creating moisture. Shea butter like other moisturizing ingredients restores the barrier between your skin and the outside environment, holding moisture in and reducing the risk of dry skin and damage from environmental exposure.
Shea butter won’t make your skin look oily after application which is one of its great advantages.
