Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), also called karite butter, is the natural fat obtained from the fruit of the karite tree in West Africa. High in vitamins A, E and F, shea butter has all the ingredients that skin needs for balance, tone and elasticity. It has excellent skin conditioning properties and is used as an emollient and moisturiser, being deeply penetrating.
It also has mild antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and demulcent properties. Shea butter acts as a skin protector against weather conditions and as a rejuvenator, stimulating new cells formation and growth.
It has exceptional healing properties as well as natural sunscreen abilities, with an SPF ranging from 2 to 6 and blocking up to 30% of UV radiation.
