For Beautiful & Angelic Skin
Like the other plant butters we use, Shea Butter is rich in a variety of fatty acids like Omega-9, oleic, stearic, palmitic and linoleic acids. Each of these fatty acids has their own unique benefit for skin cell health. For example, palmitic acid is a great emollient for softening and soothing skin. Linoleic acid prevents hair loss and assists wound healing.
To put it simply, fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. For skin cells, this means producing and maintaining the skin’s natural oil barrier. This is the skin’s natural process to keep skin hydrated, plump, soft and healthy.
Shea Butter is also high in vitamin A, one of the best anti-oxidants for your skin. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin production, and is therefore known to restores the skins natural elasticity, reducing stretch marks and wrinkles. It also assists with the healing of wounds, and the repair of allergies and insect bites.
