What are the main benefits?

Moisturising : The high concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea Butter make it intensely nourishing and moisturising for your skin. It is frequently used to treat dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils. Anti-Inflammatory: A study conducted in 2010 concluded that due to the presence of cinnamic acid and various other natural properties, shea butter was found to be anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even suggested the possibility of helping to avoid skin mutations. This also makes it valuable for those suffering from acne. Skin Smoothing: Shea Butter assists in the skin’s natural production of collagen and contains Oleic, Stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids. These acids protect and nourish the skin to prevent unwanted drying. After long-term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as the reduction of wrinkles.
