Shea Butter (Wildcrafted)
Shea Butter – Product Details
Extracted from the nut of the Shea-Karite tree (commonly found throughout Africa), shea butter is a common ingredient in both Ayurvedic and modern skincare. Its creamy consistency and high concentrations of fatty acids allow shea butter to aid in skin hydration and moisturization. It’s also safe for all skin types, has no known allergic reactions and will not clog pores.
Shea butter has anti-inflammatory properties, promotes healing and can balance the skin’s pH levels. Due to its restorative and gentle qualities, Shea Butter is often recommended to support a variety of skin-related issues, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, scrapes, wrinkles, burns, extreme dryness, and more. It can typically be used on all parts of the body, including the face, without facilitating the production of excess oil or aggravating existing skin conditions or sensitivities. An anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, shea butter may stave off a number of skin issues while providing the hydration and healing necessary for a healthy and beautiful complexion.

Shea Butter – FAQs
What are the health benefits of shea butter?
Shea butter is considered to be safe for all skin types, meaning that the risk of allergic reactions and skin irritation is extremely low. It provides hydration and moisturization without clogging the pores, allowing for more complete absorption without any oily sensations. Not only can Shea Butter protect against harsh weather and soothe a number of skin conditions, but it’s been suggested that it has anti-aging properties. The antioxidants and triterpenes found in shea butter are believed to protect the skin against premature aging and to minimize the appearance of fine lines. It’s also thought that shea butter can minimize the appearance of stretch marks and scarring.
How should shea butter be applied?
Shea butter is an ingredient found in many modern skincare products, but our pure and unrefined shea butter product differs from a lotion. When using unrefined shea butter, you should take a small amount from the jar and melt it in your hands. Then, you can apply it by massaging it into the skin or even the hair and scalp. Our shea butter is wonderful for growing bellies! Rub in between palms to warm and apply to skin to nourish from the outside, while you nourish your baby from the inside. It is also safe for oral consumption, although it is meant for external use.
