Shea butter is a unique skincare ingredient with phenomenal emollient and moisturizing properties, chock-full of skin calming terpenes and anti-ageing tocopherols.
The traditional process of creating shea butter is long and meticulous. First, the shea shell is cracked, and the nuts are removed. Then the nuts go through a long process where they are repeatedly crushed and cooked until finally all that is left is a paste, which is then kneaded for about half an hour, to separate the fat. Lastly, a final rinse with water completely removes the pulp, leaving a creamy butter.
Shea butter is a complex ingredient, that contains a complex collection of nutrients and essential fatty acids that benefit the skin in a variety of different ways. Its high quantity of oleic acid makes it a wonderful moisturizer that fills in gaps between skin cells and prevents moisture loss. Its unsaponifiable constituents include anti-ageing vitamin E and sterols, soothing terpenes, and skin brightening cinnamic acid. In other words, this rich butter is an excellent component in skincare for anyone who wants fresher, brighter, and smoother skin.
