The amazing skin care properties of shea butter were first harnessed thousands of years ago; accounts from as early as Cleopatra’s Egypt speak of caravans bearing clay jars of valuable shea butter for cosmetic use.
Among populations using shea butter, skin diseases were rare and skin was exceptionally supple and smooth. Shea butter is clinically proven to heal skin and reduce inflammation. Due to its highly moisturising, skin conditioning and skin-rejuvenating properties, it is an active ingredient for improving dry skin.
It spreads as easily as soft butter and is soothing to the skin. It also prevents and protects against stretch marks during pregnancy, after which its usefulness continues as a key baby-care product.
