Shea Butter

Ingredients Shea Butter

There are many ingredients that are commonly used in beauty products. They are so incredibly well-known and appreciated for their benefits that brands will often add them as complementary ingredients if not as an active one. Among such ingredients, you will come across the likes of coconut oil, tea tree oil, shea butter, and other naturally occurring ingredients.

Since it is a commonly used beauty ingredient, shea butter is very frequently found in the products displayed on your bathroom vanity. However, most don’t actually know about the origins of this additive.

Extracted from the fruit of the shea tree, also known as Karite tree, shea butter is considered a super food for the skin. It is naturally saturated with vitamins and is popular for protecting against the sun. When it comes to using shea butter, it is very popular in Africa for skin and hair benefits. With time, the popularity spread to other parts of the world too.

Today, we have an amazing range of skin and hair products that often offer unique and powerful formulas. A vast range of beauty products make use of shea butter; especially those that aim to improve issues of the skin, hair, scalp, and lips. It is used for harnessing the power of fatty acids, vitamins A, E, and F, and the SPF 6.


Shea butter can naturally fight premature signs of skin ageing. The skin produces a protein called collagen, which is responsible for holding the skin in place; making it elastic and smooth. With increasing age, collagen can be reduced in production; casing wrinkles and lines. Sometimes, premature skin ageing can occur due to excessive sun exposure, unhealthy diet, or other reasons. Shea butter supports the skin by producing collagen and deeply nourishing it.

Dry Skin

Containing stearic, palmitic, linolenic and oleic acids, Shea butter reaches deep into the skin to provide moisture. This is a great benefit for those suffering from very dry skin. Regular use can make the skin smooth and soft.

Sun Protection

Due to the presence of SPF 6, one can apply shea butter to protect the skin against the sun. It is a low-grade sun protector, which means it is ideal for mild sunny weather. You may find more powerful sunscreens that use shea butter is an additive to enhance the function.
