Shea nut butter is an ideal ingredient used throughout the cosmetic industry in the manufacturing of skin creams, lotions and make-up. Its physical properties allow it to easily absorb into the skin promoting skin elasticity; and will not leave an oily or greasy residue typical of many oils.
Shea nut butter is a great natural emollient and can be used to treat dry skin and hair. It contains a high level of vitamins A, E, F and oleic fatty acid. Shea nut olein may help with skin irritations and is especially favorable for massage therapists in hot oil treatments.
