I love Shea Butter. It’s one of my most favourite ingredients to use. In fact, you can find it in almost every Sauce product I make.
What makes Shea Butter a favourite? It’s smooth. It’s creamy. It’s super moisturizing. Shea Butter is a triglyceride, which means that it contains saturated fatty acids high in anti-oxidants. That’s a fancy way of saying that it has excellent softening and moisturizing abilities. It has the ability to soothe, hydrate and balance your skin.
Shea Butter is sometimes used as a base for medicinal ointments. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties have been reported to heal scrapes and burns. I like it because it can help to relieve not just dry skin but sunburn and rashes.
But the most important thing I like about Shea Butter is that it feels really nice on your skin.
