7 Reasons You Should Be Using Shea Butter


Shea butter is a super food for your skin. It comes from ivory-colored seeds of the fruit of the Shea tree in Africa and is loaded with lots of good stuff. I use this stuff all the time, not sure what I’d do without it! Shea butter is a great alternative to skin products which are typically filled with chemicals and toxins. It can help protect you from the sun and improve your collagen production. It’s a natural, affordable alternative to processed skin products which harm your skin in the long term. It is incredibly nourishing for your skin due to the concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids. In 2010, a study showed the cinnamic acid present in shea butter made it anti-inflammatory (source). I use it on my face, hair and body! Check out the below simple reasons to use it (this stuff isn’t complicated).

It can help you relieve stretch marks and rashes.

Shea Butter is wonderful at keeping the skin healthy and in shape. It can help cure a variety of skin issues.

It is filled with antioxidants.

It has vitamin A and E in it. These vitamins help the body fight cancer causing free radicals and heavily contribute to younger, more vibrant looking skin. Your skin will feel healthier and you will have some protection from harmful UV rays.

It heals.

Look 20 until you are 80. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea. Shea butter helps the production of collagen which is amazing for skin and nails. Surely you’ve seen supplements for collagen?
