Shea Butter Skin Benefits

Updated: May 15, 2021

What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is created by boiling ground seeds from Shea tree, typically grown in Nigeria or Ghana. The butter rises to the top and forms a solid layer that is later used as a skin moisturizer.

How to use Shea Butter?

Shea butter has great moisturizing and protective properties for the skin. Shea butter is often used to protect the skin from harsh weather conditions. It also has antibacterial and scar healing properties that work to treat conditions of acne prone skin. The best part is Shea butter is non comedogenic which means it will NOT clog pores and should not cause breakouts in otherwise healthy skin. (Please consult your physician with any concerns regarding how Shea butter may impact your skin type and/or condition)

What skin types should use Shea Butter?

The amazing thing is that all skin types can benefit from the use of Shea Butter as moisturizing the skin is very important for the health of the skin cells. Though it is important to note that the drier or more mature your skin is the more butter may be required to maintain a healthy moisture balance.

How often to moisturize skin with Shea Butter?

Shea butter is typically best used at night. This is because as it absorbs perfectly into the skin, almost mimicking the skin's natural oil, it may cause issues when applying makeup. If you wear makeup or prefer a more matte appearance during the day, I recommend using an oil-free moisturizer.
