Benefits of Shea Butter

There are many benefits of Shea butter. Now, exploring this topic may seem to put some to sleep. However, I will make it as enticing as possible! 🙂

Shea butter is an all-natural vitamin A cream. By now we all know it is super moisturizing with exceptional healing properties for the skin. There is now a growing list of skin conditions where 100% Premium Shea butter has shown to be effective. The vitamin A in Shea butter is important for improving a number of skin problems including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, dermatitis, and sunburns. It also has properties which can treat skin allergies, and insect bites. The moisturizers in Shea butter are the same moisturizers produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin.

What sets apart Shea butter from all other natural oils?

Most seed oils can be divided into two important fractions. The first fraction is called the saponifiable fraction which contains the soothing properties. The second fraction is called the nonsapoinifiable fraction which contains the healing properties. What sets Shea butter apart from other seed oils is its exceptionally large healing fraction. The healing fraction contains important nutrients, vitamins, and other valuable organic chemicals required for healing. Some report this fraction is as high as 17%! The natural emollients in Shea butter are what makes it so wildly popular!

Hope I didn’t lose you in there somehow!

What Is Shea Butter?

Shea Butter is a natural conditioner for hair. It is a unique blend of the emollients/fat produced from the Shea-Karite tree nut, which is a native tree found in the tropics of East and West Africa. It provides extraordinary moisturizing properties and is therefore known as “mother nature’s conditioner”.

It has been utilized for decades not only for the hair but also because of it’s skincare and therapeutic qualities. It has been known to be used in restorative healing and injuries, to get rid of surgical marks, dermatitis, and stretch marks. There are many benefits of Shea Butter. It has been used for centuries to sooth dry itchy scalp or dandruff on African hair. It is also a great source to provide moisture for dry or damaged hair. It absorbs easily into the scalp and it has been believed to possess anti- inflammatory qualities. Shea butter does not sit on the hair or skin. It is absorbed without leaving a greasy or heavy feel. It also has a low but sufficient amount of SPF to be considered a shield against UV rays.

There are two types of Shea butter – refined and unrefined. Unrefined Shea butter means it has more of its natural goodness. One of the reasons Shea butter is refined is to eliminate it’s natural aroma which may smell like a charred, or smoky smell. However, the odor does absorb fairly quickly. The best unrefined Shea butter can be found from Uganda or East Africa. It does cost slightly more however, it is better at moisturizing. Refined Shea butter can include chemicals, water, and alcohol.

Shea butter is increasing in its popularity and is at a high demand.
