Beauty Benefits of Shea Butter


Shea butter is one of the best natural moisturizers available and it is widely used in skin care, hair care, and body care.  The beauty industry has realized the potential of shea butter and has exploited this amazing product to its fullest.  From soaps, body lotions, shower gels, shampoos to nail care, you can find shea butter in everything.  Shea butter is rich in unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids such as oleic acid, linoleic acid which are super antioxidants and can repair and renew skin and hair.  Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of shea tree.  Shea butter protects skin from sun damage, moisturizes and hydrates skin.  Shea butter is also rich in vitamin A and Vitamin E, and acts as an excellent moisturizer.  Vitamin E in shea butter heals and repairs skin.  Shea butter nourishes skin and hair and also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Shea butter also has compounds that stimulate collagen production, hence its an effective anti-ageing agent.  There’s nothing better than shea butter to treat dry and extremely dry skin types because of its high moisturizing properties. It is suitable for all skin types and has never known to cause any irritation or reaction even on sensitive skin types.

If you have dry, damaged, and frizzy hair, shea butter can take care of all those hair woes without causing any side effect.  It also adds shine and moisture to the hair.

Its a superb emollient, so good to soften the rough skin in your body, like the knees and elbows.  Also, it softens hard and painful cuticles.


Since its so moisturizing, it can be used on the entire body to clear off dry patches and itchy skin.  Also, it can be used to treat cracked heels and rough skin on the feet.  Also, a great cure to treat skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

In short, its a wonder product for all skin and hair problems.  By the way, did you know that shea butter is used in some chocolates too 😛
