Africa’s best kept beauty secret.

- Natural Moisturiser
Shea Butter is rich in Vitamins A and E (Vitamin A supports healthy skin and boosts cell growth; whilst Vitamin E is an antioxidant). It is a skin super-food that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii), making it Vegan friendly and 100% natural. Shea butter will quickly help cracked heels or elbows, cracked lips and dried out skin. Shea Butter gives a soft and silky feel to your skin as it absorbs into your body.
When Shea Butter is applied to the skin, it triggers your inflammatory cells to slow down their production. This will help minimise irritation on your skin such as eczema and may minimize irritation caused by environmental factors, such as dry weather.
- Antioxidant properties
Shea butter has significant levels of vitamins A and E, leading to strong antioxidant activity. As antioxidants are important anti-aging agents, they protect your skin from free radicals that can lead to ageing of the skin and dull skin also.
- Skin Protection
Shea butter is a great skin protector from pollution and even harmful UV rays. Shea Butter naturally has a small amount of UV protection. Which means wearing Shea Butter under your make-up will mean your skin has a small level of protection from the sun. However, make sure you purchase a vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free and antioxidant-based sunscreen for all seasons. Check out our post on our #bestsunscreens for dark skin.
