The Story of Shea Butter
Shea Butter is made from the nut of the Shea Tree, grown mostly in
West Africa. It has been around for a long time but I had never heard
of it until a year or two ago. I have been so impressed by Shea Butter
that now I carry the product. It is unbeatable as a skin rejuvenator.
Because Shea Butter stimulates cellular activity, it is the king of all the vegetable butters, with skin care properties superior even to Cocoa Butter. It contains all the necessary rich fatty acids that rejuvenate and moisturize the skin, providing the essential vitamins needed to make the skin look and feel smoother, softer, and healthier.
The oil or butter promotes skin renewal, increases circulation, and accelerates wound healing. Vitamins A & E soothe, balance and hydrate the skin, while providing the necessary skin collagen that handles wrinkles. Vitamin F is rich in fatty acids that repairs damaged skin and hair.
It also seems to alleviate the occasional arthritis I suffer, when I use it in my bath. I am also convinced that Shea Butter is part of the reason I keep my natural hair color as I age. Shea Butter has become an essential part of my senior quality of life.
Shea Butter as a skin care remedy works for me. It is a delightful moisturizer – and it feels sooooo . . . good!
