Shea butter is an off-white or ivory colored fatty extract from the African Shea tree. Rich in vitamins and natural fatty acids, Shea helps add moisture to and nourishes the skin. This natural product helps the skin rebuild collagen, strengthening and softening the skin. It’s a natural anti-aging product that has the potential to reduce wrinkles.

Shea butter has other healing properties that may shock you. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it helps heal minor scrapes, cuts and burns. But that’s not all, it helps relieve rashes, sunburns as well as taking the sting out of bug bites.

Along with its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory components, Shea butter adds moisture to your skin, leaving it feeling soft and radiant. It hydrates and balances the skin, healing cracked lips, heels, elbows and knees.
