Shea Butter Unrefined - Organic
The most widely used of all the cosmetic skin care butters, Shea Butter is renowned for its skin moisturizing properties. Used extensively in the spa and personal care industry in products ranging from body butters, massage products, body scrubs, creams, lotions, haircare products and natural soaps. Shea butter has been used for years 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 contains cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Shea butter protects the skin from both environmental and free-radical damage, containing vitamins A and E, and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
This butter is darker in colour and has a stronger smell than the refined Shea Butter.
