Did You Know That Shea-Butter Is Good For All Skin Types-Did You Know

Just like cocoa butter comes from the seeds of the cocoa pod from the cacao tree, shea butter comes from the nut of the African Shea tree. But unlike cocoa butter, there is no pod.

People gather nuts after they have fallen off of the tree. The outer shells are removed and the nuts are
roasted, milled and the oil is extracted. The butter is then kneaded to a cooled state as it solidify.

Benefits To Skin

The benefits of shea butter and cocoa butter are quite similar

1. Antioxidant Rich: Shea butter is high in antioxidants, which help fight off free radicals. Free radicals are causes of early signs of aging and skin stressers.

2. Super Moisturizer: Shea butter is a great skin moisturizer, great for very dry skin and areas such as dry callouses on the hands and feet as well as ashy knees and elbows.

3. Sensitive Skin Healer: Shea butter has been noted to help skin irritations such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.

4. Scar fighter: It has been noted to help the body heal from burns and cuts with minimizing scaring. No guarantees, but definitely worth trying.
