Organic Shea Butter – The Natural African Gift for your Skin

Apr 4th 2015 at 12:13 AM

Shea butter comes from the African Shea tree and it is known as a good moisturizer and for relieving certain skin conditions, like sunburns, eczema, and psoriasis. Shea butter is ideal as an all-natural way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, cars, and fine lines, too. Organic Shea butter is the best form of Shea butter that you can find in hand and body products. Using organic Shea butter guarantees that the product is free from additives and chemicals that may affect its efficiency.

Shea butter's healing qualities are due to the existence of many fatty acids and plant sterols like palmitic, stearic, oleic, and lionlenic acids. These are oil-soluble components that are nonsaponifiable, which means that they cannot be converted into soap when an alkali is introduced to them. Hence, Shea butter is able to maintain its natural healing properties to relieve skin irritations and treat skin conditions.

Shea butter has anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of the derivatives of cinnamic acid, which is present in balsam trees and cinnamon. Researchers found that the triterpene cinnamates and triterpene acids from Shea butter has helped relieve tissue swelling on the skin of a mouse. Further scientific reports suggested that Shea butter might be a cancer inhibitor. It was able to prevent the development of tumours in a test where cancer cells were grown in a culture dish.

Shea butter naturally contains vitamins A and E, both of which are essential for healthy skin. Catechins, which are commonly found in green tea, are present in Shea butter, too. These ingredients are critical in the effectiveness of organic Shea butter as a moisturizing ingredient in skin products. It is common to find lip balm and skin moisturizers with Shea butter, and they are often recommended to people with extremely dry skin and chapped lips.

You can buy organic Shea butter online, but make sure that the product has at least 30 percent organic Shea butter sourced from hippo conservation project. There are different kinds of organic Shea butter online, but be sure to buy from a store that supports and protects Africa's indigenous beauty and the hardworking families and farmers that source the ingredients.

Shea butter can work great with other natural ingredients, such as pure aloe juice to create a soft and creamy moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Consider whipped body butter, which can provide a lasting moisture barrier for the skin and healing properties that can relieve various skin conditions.
