Shea butter is derived from the seed of the shea tree which is native to Africa and has been used by African women for beauty, health and healing purposes for a long time.

When I first discovered shea butter, it was in one of those wonderful smelling 'The Body Shop' butters. I just loved the smell and wanted to know more about it! I have been using it for some time now in my own home-made skincare and have found it to be one of the most fabulous moisturisers.



Here are some of the many benefits we know about shea butter…

Vitamin A source
Shea butter is known to be a wonderful moisturiser, with exceptional healing properties. It contains Vitamins A which has the ability to improve many skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, bites etc. - not to mention the improvement of wrinkles and blemishes.

Anti-inflammatory
Due to its cinnamic acid content, shea butter is anti-inflammatory.

Skin smoothing
Shea butter has special components that aid in the skin's natural collagen production. With long term use, people report improvement in wrinkles and overall softness and strengthening of the skin.



Shea butter is a great ingredient to add to homemade skincare products such as body butters and lotions and can be used by the whole family. I have found it to be fairly inexpensive considering how beneficial it is. Just make sure it is unrefined, raw and organic.
