Most all of us have heard of Shea Butter. Most of us may even know that it’s very good for our skin. But few people may realize the amazing benefits of using Raw Shea Butter on our skin and exactly what makes it so unique.
Did you know that 100% Pure Natural Shea Butter is an all-natural Vitamin A Cream? We all know that Shea Butter is typically used for deep moisturizing of the skin, but it is also has exceptional healing properties, including preventing and treating cancer (WebMD). The Vitamin A in Shea Butter is effective in improving many skin issues, from blemishes, eczema, dermatitis, cold sores and wrinkles (typically 4-6 weeks for results). What is lesser known about Raw Shea Butter, is its effectiveness on treating sunburn, insect bites, skin allergies, skin cracks, itching (instantly), and *stretch marks. Yes, ladies, *stretch marks!
For purposes of this blog, however; I’m going to address the unparalleled value Raw Shea Butter has in deep moisturizing our skin. First of all, the moisturizers in Pure Shea Butter are the same moisturizers that are produced naturally by the sebaceous glands in our skin. Based on that fact, it makes perfect sense that Raw Shea Butter would be an extremely effective moisturizer, helping to counteract dryness and wrinkles due to moisture and elasticity loss in our skin, as we age. One of our skins biggest enemys is dryness. Besides protecting our skin from the sun, the next best thing we can do is moisturize, moisturize and moisturize.
While we know the positive effects of Vitamin A, we also find Vitamin E in in Raw Shea Butter. While science is still unclear what Vitamin E’s exact function is in human beings, it has been known to be effective in anti-aging, an anti-free radical agent, and increases micro-circulation. This, in turn, aids in preventing the negative effects of sun and environmental exposure.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to use ONLY Raw Shea Butter – which is derived from the Shea Tree a/k/a TREE OF LIFE, and free of chemicals and preservatives – in order to maximize the benefits described above.
Personally, I was so impressed with the effects of Raw Shea Butter on my skin, that I formulated my own, and added even more moisturizing and healing actives. My Raw Shea Body Butter is enhanced with Organic Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Pure Essential Oils in varying fragrances. These oils, in addition to Raw Shea Butter, is absolutely the very best treatment you can offer your body and your skin.
*Stretch marks are also based on heredity which may effect results in some cases.
