5 Ways to Use Shea Butter to Your Benefit

The Benefits of Shea Butter for Acne

Facial skin is very sensitive, and thus requires special care. For those living with acne, the skincare routine is even more complex since it requires a blend of ingredients that provide a deep cleanse without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Thanks to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, shea butter offers a remedy which soothes the skin without causing harsh reactions, moisturising without clogging the pores of the skin.

Not only that, shea butter is also an effective remedy against scars; the raw ingredient can not only calm the skin and help rid it of toxins that lead to acne, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars. So why not try our Shea Light Comforting Cream as part of your shea moisture skincare routine.

The Benefits of Shea Butter for Eczema

Designed to support the naturally supple quality of your skin, Certified Organic Pure Shea Butter boasts a thick and smooth texture which, when melted in your hand, glides straight onto the skin and forms a protective barrier across even the driest patches of eczema, increasing water retention and preventing any water loss.

The Benefits of Shea Butter for Hair

Responsible both for restoring moisture to the hair and protecting the hair shafts from heat treatment and moisture-stripping hair products, shea butter is the all-rounder we need.

Thanks to its natural state as a fatty substance, shea butter is packed full of fatty acids which condition both the hair and your scalp, and infuse vital nutrients into both areas which stimulate the hair follicles to make them stronger and help promote growth. Shea butter can also make your hair stronger and more supple, with fewer split ends and a shiny finish. The best way to use shea butter on hair is to apply unrefined pure shea butter as a hair mask on the ends and let it rest for a few minutes to get the best results for healthy, shiny hair.

The Benefits of Shea Butter for Scars and Stretch Marks

Seen by many as one of the world’s leading natural products against scarring and stretch marks, shea butter in its natural and raw state is particularly effective at delivering a multitude of vitamins to the skin. This includes Vitamin A, which supports cell growth and repair under the skin and prevents dry skin from the kind of damage that leads to stretch marks. Through a combination of ultra-hydration and effective vitamins, shea butter can form part of a natural remedy to ward off stretch marks.

Users can apply shea butter in its natural state to scars, or you can create an effective treatment using natural lavender and lemon essential oils whipped into the shea butter. A more potent blend mixes shea butter with rosehip oil, creating a natural remedy that is rich in antioxidants, and promotes the lightening and fading of scars gradually.

The Benefits of Shea Butter for Skin

We all know shea butter is good for skin but it is especially beneficial for ageing skin and to prevent wrinkles and fine lines. Packed with anti-inflammatory properties and rich in omegas 3 and 6, and high in the antioxidant vitamin E, shea butter provides a boost in the form of natural cinnamic acid, which forms a barrier between the skin and harmful UV rays. Not only that, shea butter also provides a boost in collagen production within the skin, causing skin to feel and appear much softer and smoother; while the fatty acids provide all the nutrients that the skin needs to keep it well-moisturised and protected. Use shea butter complementarily to our anti-ageing skincare for even better results.
