When it comes to the skin, Shea butter acts as a powerful antioxidant. It can be used to treat various skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, blemishes, itches and cracks, cuticle repair, sunburn, and scars.

Prevention & protection
You don’t have to be battling with skin problems to start using Shea Butter. More of the contrary, you can greatly prevent potential or future issues with it. Starting with moisturizing, softening, and smoothening the skin, Shea Butter is excellent for the prevention of stretch marks and wrinkle formation. Thus, its therapeutic properties are also anti-aging ones, generally preserving the skin balance and elasticity of the epidermis, and the brightness of your hair.
