We all know it’s important to put healthy foods into our bodies, but what about what we put on them?
Shea butter is the superfood of skincare, providing you with the nutrients you need for heavenly, healthy skin. In fact, even Ancient Egyptians used this nut extract as a beautifying agent.
What is it about this timeless moisturizing body cream that makes it pack a powerful punch, and what can shea butter do for you?
Check out these 8 reasons that Shea Butter is good for your skin and why we used it as our flagship ingredient in our Number One selling skin cream, Tighten Up Crepe Skin Cream!
- Shea Butter is Naturally Rich in Vitamins
Like a green smoothie for your skin, shea butter is packed with Vitamins A, E, F and K. These vitamins provide a strong dose of soothing antioxidants and essential fatty acids that keep your skin healthy and glowing.
- Shea Butter is a Moisturizer
Looking for an all-in-one moisturizer that won’t leave you sticky? Shea butter naturally hydrates your face and body. It then locks in the nutrients and hydration for smooth, silky skin.
- It’s Naturally Anti-Aging
The healthy hydration that shea butter provides is also incredibly nourishing. These nutrients are great for counteracting signs of aging in the skin. And, for those of us that already have a few fine lines...
- Shea Butter Smooths Imperfections
Shea butter can help improve the appearance of acne, blemishes, stretch marks, and even wrinkles! This versatile property makes it a necessary cream for all ages.
- It’s Great for Hair and Scalp
Shea butter’s moisturizing properties are great for more than just your skin. Ditch the chemical laden hair products and slather this on your hair and scalp instead. It seals in moisture, conditions your scalp, and can even reduce split ends!
- And Even Promotes Hair Growth!
All the nutrients from shea butter you’ve fed your scalp to condition it also work to promote further growth. Don’t worry about taking heat-based hair styling tools to your new luxurious locks--shea butter may even block heat damage.
- It Soothes Your Skin
Do you have chapped lips or cracked elbows? How about a sore nose from a cold or flu? Shea butter soothes dry or inflamed skin. Continue to use it once your skin has healed to prevent further chapping or cracking!
- Finally, Use it to Pamper Yourself
After you’ve nourished your body, use shea butter to nourish your soul with a little “you time.” Shea butter is great as a massage butter that both relaxes and hydrates. It’s also a great base to mix with other ingredients for a DIY face mask. Best of all, you can use it alone, or with a friend!
That’s why we chose it as one of our feature ingredients in Tighten Up is shea butter.
We loved for these main reasons:
- Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
- Reduces Inflammation: A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory.One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.
- Skin Smoothing: Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.
