When it comes to your skin health, Shea Butter is an all-star – that miracle ingredient found in many a skincare product, destined to moisturise and nourish even the most parched skin. But what is it about Shea Butter that makes it quite so miraculous and how will using it improve your skin’s health?
Native to Africa, shea butter is extracted from the seeds of the fruit of the Karite Tree which coincidentally translates to ‘Tree of Life.’ Naturally rich in skin-optimising Vitamin A, E and F, it’s your vitamin-packed skin saviour. Skincare-savvy shoppers know that Vitamin E is the number one go-to ingredient for skin-smoothing, antioxidant and protective properties.
The sheer concentration of natural vitamins and fatty-acids in shea butter means that it packs a serious punch when it comes to moisturising and nourishing your skin, whatever your skin type. Its high fat content means it is an excellent natural emollient and humectant, locking in moisture and keeping skin hydrated. It also does a great job of ensuring that your skin’s natural oils are protected, which means you can say hello to baby-soft, silky-smooth skin.
Suffering from a breakout of acne? Many people who suffer from this skin condition have found that shea butter is a beneficial ingredient in their skincare routine due to its extra-special anti-inflammatory agent, cinnamic acid. The antioxidant properties of this magic little ingredient assist with cell regeneration and shea butter has been found to help reduce the damage done to skin as a result of free radicals.
As we age, skin starts to lose its natural elasticity, which can lead to sagging. The Vitamin F found in shea butter can help to reduce the effects of this, since it is fantastic for supporting and maintaining skin’s elasticity, allowing it to move and grow without wrinkling.
Shea butter is considered one of the best anti-aging agents out there, mainly because it helps to stimulate the production of collagen, which can slow down as we get older, leading to fine lines, dryness and slack skin. If used regularly, shea butter can help to reduce wrinkles, firm skin and maintain a healthy glow…which is exactly why we pack it into many of our Mio formulas!
