Benefits of Raw Shea Butter


Sunny Day!!!

 

We wanted to make sure you know about the oh so wonderful product we use everyday on everyone in the house. From head to toe literally..   Image

The soothing properties of Shea Butter are well known on the African subcontinent, and are quickly catching on elsewhere. I personally keep a jar on hand at all times, and it really comes in handy. Raw Shea Butter works wonders in healing the following:

Shortens healing time of cuts/burns and reduces accompanying dark marks.
A natural way to ease the redness and discomfort of sunburn, and speed healing.
An emollient which penetrates the skin quickly, Shea Butter moisturizes your scalp and helps to reduce and eliminate dandruff.
If you have chronically dry skin or Eczema, using Shea Butter provides natural moisture to your skin and relief from itching. I use this on my two year old before bedtime to ensure she doesnt scratch himself raw during the night.
Applying Shea Butter immediately helps take the sting out of insect bites. This will allow the bite to heal faster, as you are not scratching.

Therapeutic Benefits of Shea Butter

Because of the silky smoothness of 100% pure Shea Butter, and the ease with which it melts on contact, its the perfect solution when you need to feel better. Try these therapeutic uses for Shea Butter and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!

Raw Shea Butter is fabulous for massages. It melts on contact with your skin, providing a smooth, relaxing experience. If you’re having trouble sleeping, request a back rub using Shea Butter. You’ll float blissfully into dreamland within minutes.
Over the counter creams are often too harsh when dealing with diaper rash, and can cause further irritation. Sooth your babys bottom with natural Shea Butter instead. It will help heal the rash, and provide a natural barrier against moisture.
There is nothing worse than razor bumps, especially in the bikini area. Applying a little Shea Butter before shaving helps the razor glide smoothly, avoiding irritation. If you already have razor bumps, applying Shea Butter afterwards will cool down that irritating itchy feeling.
Shea Butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties. If you suffer from arthritis pain, rubbing your joints with Shea Butter can help. It is also good for soothing post workout muscle aches.

Visual Benefits of Shea Butter

You want to always look your best, starting with your skin. Shea Butter softens, evens, and corrects your skin to keep you looking fabulous.

While nothing can totally eliminate stretch marks, using Shea Butter to moisturize your skin during pregnancy can hinder them from appearing. Also, using Shea Butter after stretch marks appear can aid in minimizing their appearance.
Want wrinkle prevention? In the areas of Africa where Shea Butter is widely used, the elders have amazing skin. Shea Butter contains essential fatty acids, along with Vitamins A and E, which are essential to maintaining skin elasticity and softness.
If you are prone to hyper pigmentation or dark marks, regular use of Shea Butter can help even your skin tone. If you have very oily skin, you may want to try Emu Oil instead.
Of course you want your skin to be touchably soft all over. Use Shea Butter regularly as part of your morning routine to soften your elbows and knees, eliminating that dry, rough look. Using a Shea based sugar scrub once a week gives the added benefit of exfoliating the dead skin that has accumulated, revealing softer, brighter skin.
The anti-inflammatory properties of Shea Butter can help to reduce the redness of acne. Also, Shea Butter is excellent for fading dark marks and acne scars.

Moisturizing Benefits of Shea Butter

Moisture is one of the biggest contributors to beautiful, glowing skin. In addition to making sure you consume enough water, moisturizing from the outside is an essential part of any skin care regimen. Natural Shea Butter is perfect for this because it:

Sinks in quickly and deeply to thoroughly nourish dry skin
Naturally contains vitamins A and E, which have to be added to synthetic skin creams
Perfect for chapped lips. Try putting on a thin coat before bed. This natural “lip treatment” will give you the smoothest, softest lips ever.
Adds luscious long lasting moisture to soaps,lotions, and exfoliating scrubs
Softens and heals cracked skin. Shea Butter is great for feet, elbows, and knees. Use after a pedicure for superb softness.

    Shea butter will even out your skin tone, moisturize/soften your skin, restore the elastic qualities in your skin (stretch marks), help with skin irritations, and it will keep your skin clear.

    raw sheabutter is the best for those with chronical dry skin i have excessive dry skin which people i meet are glad to tell me of. my dry sk is so noticeable and plenty on my whole body but i discovered a mixture that is sure to work for people with dry skin mix sheabutter with glycerin and some olive oil the reason why i sugested glycerin is that glycerin brings the needed moisture to a dry face and it is effective in treating any case of dry skin if you add this natural moistutizer to your lotion you might not see any changes if any at all but for some it is a different case entirely.and when i use this mixture i feel sweaty and moisturize due to the glycerin. if you want this mixture to work it magic use natural soap that is not harsh for your skin you could use pure sheabutter soap or glycerin soap or any mild natural soap because some natural soap still prove to be hard for dry skin it is infact use for any skin type dont mix sheabutter with lotion i have done it for years i didnt get the result i wanted for my horrible disgraceful dry skin.i started seeing real changes when i mixed glycerin with sheabutter and olive and ofcourse you could add other effective moisturizer like coconut oil and so on to compliment your skin but try this mixture first to see how it activate it charm.
