Shea butter is the buzzy ingredient that we know for its softening properties in skin care and hair care. But just what is shea butter?
Shea butter is a healthy fat that comes from the shea tree, a tree that predominantly grows in West Africa. Shea tree nuts are boiled and manipulated to create pure shea butter.
The benefits of shea butter go beyond softening skin—this super-ingredient is infused with essential fatty acids and vitamins A, E and F, so it can help combat irritation, blemishes and dryness while soothing and healing skin. Not to mention, it features a natural SPF of 6-10, making it an effective sun protectant, and it’s non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores. Shea butter is in many of our products, from makeup to body care. Discover our nourishing shea butter products below.
