Shea Butter, which is extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree, is a natural soothing and moisturising substance. It is loaded with skin-boosting benefits, and is a main ingredient in all of our ORGANIC BEESWAX BALMS. Benefits of Shea Butter include:
SKIN NOURISHMENT: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturising for skin. The rich tree-nut oils in shea butter can soak into the skin, creating a smooth and soft barrier that seals in moisture.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Unrefined Shea Butter has been proven to have extensive anti-inflammatory and healing properties in several studies. It is packed with antioxidants including vitamin E, polyphenols and phytonutrients – all anti-inflammatory products which calm and soothe the skin.
NUTRIENT DENSE: Shea Butter is full of nutrients, including vitamin A, which has many healing properties and has been known to aid in treating blemishes, wrinkles, eczema and dermatitis, as well as burns and stretch marks.
ORGANIC: We only use organic ingredients in our ORGANIC BEESWAX BALMS, and the Shea Butter we use is certified organic and unrefined, as close to its natural state as you can get.
