Shea Butter And How It Can Help Your Skin

Aug 18, 2007
Shea butter is one of the few emollients in the world that can also be ingested orally. Not only is it used in lotions, shampoos, moisturizers, face creams, bubble baths, and other cosmetic products but it is also used as a cooking oil in many areas of the world.

It most certainly is not the most pleasant aroma in the world, but it is a useful ingredient in many aspects of a healthful daily life, from healthy cooking to healthy looking skin.

It is made from the fruit of the Shea tree. After the fruit has been removed from this unusual tree, it is crushed and boiled and made into a palpable greenish cream-like substance, which is widely renowned for its anti-aging and moisturizing properties.

While many people are unaware of the healing and moisturizing properties of Shea butter, the cosmetic industry is sure up on things. They have been using it in some of the most commonly purchased and widely sought after products for some time.

While many people view this substance as just a type of moisturizer included in lotion, its properties are much more powerful and extensive than that.

If you suffer from eczema or some other type of rash condition like acne, this skin care marvel can help to clear that up. Burns and scars can also be faded using its' amazing properties, which is something else that many people fail to realize when they ignore this product and look for only more advanced, clinically proven products on the market.

If you suffer from psoriasis, excessively or constantly chapping lips, irritating skin rashes and skin conditions, or excessively dry skin you should definitely give the healing properties of this beneficial butter a try.

The more Shea butter that there is in a given product, the better its healing properties are for the skin and the hair as well. If you happen to be one of those people that find it difficult to keep their hair properly conditioned, this is an ingredient that you should look for in good shampoos and conditioners. The products may cost more, but it will be worth it.

In addition, Shea products provide a certain level of protection from sunlight and harmful UV rays, slowing down the aging process. This is one of the reasons why it is so prevalent and useful in anti-aging skin care products.

If you are not up on the amazing healing properties of the fruit of the Shea tree, you now have more information than you probably ever thought you would need, probably increasing your likelihood of picking up the next product that intrigues you that includes Shea butter as an active ingredient.
