While most people consider coconut oil to be the go-to for skin, another all-natural moisturiser is shea butter. For many, even the name sounds luxurious. It is quite thick and solid when at room temperature, but it also has a rich consistency, similar to butter. It works well as a natural lip balm, body butter, and eye cream.
Studies have even shown that it can penetrate the skin. It’s highly emollient with 60 percent fat, as well. Of course, it has many other properties than just moisturising the skin; it can also deliver essential anti-ageing components and anti-inflammatory components right to the skin.
Shea butter is considered to be a superfood for the skin, and it comes from the Shea (Karite) fruit tree seeds. It’s naturally rich in vitamins E, A, and F. It also offers some sun protection and includes all the nutrients and essential fatty acids necessary so that the skin can produce more collagen. It works well to smooth the skin, strengthen it, and reduce the look of wrinkles. Along with such, it can be used in a variety of ways. Most people use it as a moisturiser cream; it can be applied just like other lotions.
N Essentials offers both unrefined and refined organic shea butter. The refined version is steam-processed and hasn’t had any chemical processing. It can still hold some moisturising properties, though they are reduced. The unrefined version has more of the moisturising properties, including vitamins F, E, and A. It can promote a healthy skin balance and make your skin look healthier. It works well on the hair, as well; you can use it sparingly on the hair to make it softer, more manageable, and healthier. You can find many different package sizes available, allowing you to choose the option that best fits your needs.
