Shea butter is becoming increasingly popular in the natural body care and cosmetic industry for good reason. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, where it has been used to protect and condition skin which has been damaged. Shea butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A and E as well as essential fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals. Shea butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin and is a wonderful product for revitalizing damaged skin. In addition, Shea butter offers a low level of UV protection (approximately SPF-6) and may be incorporated into natural sunscreen recipes. Because of its soothing nature and rejuvenating effects, it is a perfect ingredient to include in your body care recipes and skin care regime. It is also wonderful to use in the summer as a moisturizer before and after sun exposure to reduce the possibility of skin peeling or becoming dried out.
