What is Shea Butter?
What’s special about Ugandan Shea Butter?
It is creamy, soft, silky and smooth. It melts at body temperature and penetrates deep into skin delivering its vitamins and plant sterols where you need them the most.
Shea Butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E help maintain the skin and keep it clear and healthy. They are particularly helpful for sun damaged skin. They help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin.
The Ugandan Shea Butter is higher in olein than the more common West African Shea Butter. It offers easy spread for hours as anti-aging, moisture enhancing and giving the skin healthy benefits. The light nature of this rare butter makes it an excellent choice for facial skin, hair conditioning and as a daily moisture barrier.
The Ugandan Shea butter has consistently high oleic acid content, and is liquid at warm ambient temperatures. This unrefined Shea butter is superior in that it retains all its natural vitamins, especially vitamin A and vitamin E. Shea Butter trees can be seen growing wild in West Nile, Northern and Eastern Uganda where it is commonly known as Moo Yaa (Yau) in the North.
Health Benefits to the skin
Shea butter has been used to help heal burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and stretch marks. It may also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation. Shea butter also contains cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
Shea butter is a particularly effective moisturizer because contains so many fatty acids, which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity. The high fatty acid content of shea butter also makes it an excellent additive to soap, shampoos, anti-aging creams, cosmetics, lotions, and massage oils—its soft, butter-like texture melts readily into the skin. Shea butter protects the skin from both environmental and free-radical damage. It contains vitamins A and E, and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Shea Butter will provide improvement to dry skin and scalp, skin rash, peeling, blemishes, wrinkles and stretch marks. It reduces itching skin due to dryness, protects against sunburn, heals small wounds, cracks and softens tough skins on the heels. It has been known to provide relief for Eczema and protection from Sun and wind. It can provide even skin tone; reduce blemishes and scarring, eliminating scalp irritation from dryness or chemical processing. It can also be used as an after shave to prevent bumps after shaving. It is known to reduce acne (especially in combination with African Black Soap or Shea butter soaps).
Benefits to the Hair
The natural anti-inflammatory properties of Shea butter make it a nourishing choice for the scalp, helping to improve hair growth and health. The Ugandan Shea butter absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue, hence it known to restore elasticity to skin and luster to hair.
