Why Shea Butter?

There are many new products on the market offering African shea butter and some people may be asking why. Well it’s true, shea butter is often found in creams, lotions, scrubs and other skincare products but with good reason. What most people don’t know is that shea butter has been successfully used for thousands of years! In fact, it has been said that even Cleopatra AND the Queen of Sheba used shea butter regularly to keep themselves looking youthful and rejuvenated!

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) and it is native to Africa. With so many amazing health benefits it’s hard to stay away!


Shea butter has been known to…

  • Treat acne and blemishes
  • Fight against aging (anti-aging agent)
  • Provide relief to itching/peeling skin
  • Restore elasticity to skin
  • Reduce razor bumps
  • Soothe muscle aches
  • Reduce stretch marks
  • Soothe insect bites
  • Provide UV protection (sunscreen)
  • Repair damaged hair
  • Prevent hair loss
  • And much much more!!!!


In short, shea butter has many positive benefits because the body responds well to seed-derived oils. Why you ask? It’s simple, they mimic the oils naturally found in the skin.
