Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Karité Nut Tree, also known as the Mangifolia tree. It has a range of amazing properties based on its characteristics because it naturally contains many vitamins and nutrients; vitamins A and E, and cinnamic acid to name a few. If you want to know why you should use soap enriched with shea butter, here are 3 little-known shea butter skin benefits to convince you:
1. It Heals and Protects
Shea butter, which has a natural UV protection, has for centuries been used by the natives of the Ivory Coast and Senegal to heal and protect the skin from the sun’s rays. This is also due to the fact that it is anti-inflammatory. It enables faster healing of wounds, reduces marks left by scars and is often used to treat eczema, burns, rashes and very dry skin.
2. It Replenishes Your Skin
Shea butter penetrates deep into the skin, restores elasticity and helps fight against skin ageing. It moisturises and nourishes your skin and is excellent for dry, damaged and mature skin. It has fatty acids, unsaponifiables, which do not turn into soap. Thus it is very moisturising and provides a wonderful bar of soap, leaving your skin feeling soft and replenished.
3. It Is Extremely Mild
100% natural Shea butter soap is ideal for those with highly sensitive skin and is perfect for use on skin that is irritated. It also reduces skin irritation caused by psoriasis and other dermatological conditions. Shea Butter always leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, just the way you like it.
I hope this has gone some way to explaining the wonders of using natural soaps enriched with Shea Butter. So what are you waiting for? Treat yourself and your skin, you both deserve it.
