What is Shea Butter?
Shea butter is a seed fat that comes from the shea tree. The shea tree is found in East and West tropical Africa.
People apply shea butter to the skin for acne, arthritis, burns, dandruff, inflamed skin, dry skin, eczema, insect bites, itch, muscle soreness, scaly and itchy skin(psoriasis), rash, a skin infection caused by mites (scabies), scars, sinus infection, skin breakages, stretch marks, wound healing, and wrinkled skin.
Shea Butter has a smooth and thick consistency that besides its healing benefits makes it desirable in skin care products.
What else is really wonderful about Shea butter plant based products is that there is no side effects, literally none at all. Shea butter is part of the nut family and even majority of people who have a peanut allergy are not likely to have a reaction to Shea butter. Don't be reckless though if you do have a nut allergy approach, Shea butter with caution.
