Shea Butter is derived from the Shea Tree. This tree originates from Africa and contains nuts that the butter is extracted from. Shea Butter is soft and creamy and easily absorbed by the skin. It has been used by women in Africa for centuries to protect their skin from the elements, and to moisturise and nourish skin and hair.
Shea Butter is a useful ingredient for relieving an array of skin issues such as itchy skin, dry skin, sunburn and stretch marks to name a few. As an ingredient in our products it works well with our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil as both these ingredients combined have fantastic healing benefits. We recommend our Rescue Body Cream to anyone wanting to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy and our Kiss from a Rose Lip Balm for anyone suffering from dry winter lips.
