Shea Butter, another African Product. African men and women have used Shea Butter for centuries in cooking and to promote healthy skin and hair. African Shea butter is made by grounding the fruit seeds. The fat of the seeds of the African Shea tree is the source of Shea Butter. The moisturizers in Shea Butter are similar to the sebaceous glands that the human skin produces, according to American Shea Butter Institute. Shea butter enables the skin to absorb moisture from the air, therefore resulting in softer skin that remains moisturized for longer periods of time.
Shea Butter has shown to be very effective in moisturizing the skin during pregnancy, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, scars and stretch marks. Shea Butter also is effective in treating a variety of skin irritations, such as psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, insect bites, skin allergies and sunburn. Shea Butter also helps to prevent skin damage from ultraviolet radiation. Shea butter has anti-inflammatory and healing properties and also contains vitamins A and E, as well as catechins, plant antioxidants also found in green tea.
