Shea butter, also known as Karité butter, is one of the greatest miracles of the Dark Continent. Its name means "life" and it is considered sacred. It is believed that the Egyptian queen Nefertiti owed the magnificence of her beauty to the daily use of Shea butter.
Shea butter is extremely valuable because of its components and its benefits for the skin.
The large amount of Vitamin E provides protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation and free radicals. It helps prevent appearance of wrinkles, smooth’s out fine facial lines and counteracts premature skin aging. Vitamin F acts as a skin protector. It has strong softening effect on rough, dry and flaky skin. Shea Butter also contains a significant amount of cinnamic acid, a substance acting as a natural SPF 4.
"Women's gold" is rich in trace elements and fatty acids - equal proportions of saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It contains large amounts of oleic acid - 40-50%, stearic acid - 40-50%, palmitic acid - up to 10% and linoleic acid up to 2%. They are necessary for maintaining skin moisture and elasticity and for regulation of lipid synthesis in depth.
These ingredients of Shea butter are beneficial for cell renewal, restoration of horny layer and skin soothing. It is believed that this butter is the best skin care in winter and after sun exposure as it provides the necessary moisture and nutrients in the cold season and dry weather.
