For centuries, women of West Africa and the Savannah grasslands have relied on Shea butter, also known as karite, to protect their skin, hair and scalp from the harsh African climate. Shea Butter is an amazing natural ingredient known to promote cell growth, improve skin elasticity, diminish the signs of aging, help prevent and reduce stretch marks and provide a natural sun protection against UV rays. Its healing and disinfecting properties are largely due to its high content of unsaponifiable fatty acids. These fatty acids treat and heal eczema, psoriasis, chapped and chafed skin, razor burn, diaper rash, minor cuts and scars.
