Shea Butter is very moisturizing and rich in vitamins such as A, E and F. It contains fatty acids that keep the skin protected and it is a great remedy for dry skin. It is gentle enough to use on the most sensitive skin and it offers a small UV protection with SPF6. It has been used in Africa for centuries to moisturize dry skin and hair. It also contains cinnamic acid that can help against skin mutations and inflammation, this means it is great to use on mature skin. Fatty acids found in Shea Butter include oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linoleic all of which moisturize, protect, soften, and nourish the skin, assisting with collagen production keeping the skin looking youthful and plump. Shea Butter is ideal to use in body butter, soap, lip balm, and hair treatments. At Purely Natural Blends we use Shea Butter in our artisan soap for extra moisturizing properties. We also use in lip balm formulations since it can keep lips soft and plump.
