Shea butter is the fatty substance extracted from the nut of the shea tree, which is native to western Africa. It is full of fatty acids and vitamins, including vitamins A, E, K, and F, and has a creamy texture that can penetrate deeply into both skin and hair.
This makes it a great choice for natural skin and hair care. You can find shea butter in many organic personal care products, or you can simply use it on its own.
1. Natural Moisturizer
The rich, natural moisture in shea butter allows it so soak down into all the layers of your skin, not just the top one, without leaving any greasiness behind. Because it is a completely chemical-free moisturizer, it is also gentle enough for very sensitive skin.
