Shea butter, superfood voor je huid!

Shea butter, superfood for your skin!

Shea Butter a real vitamin bomb! I'm a total fan! It has been used for thousands of years by people in the arid Sahara and savannah to protect their skin from the scorching sun. Shea Butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea Tree (Karité Tree). Because of its many special properties, the Shea is a sacred tree and is treated with great respect.

Shea butter really takes care of your skin!

Shea is an extraordinary care product! It is mainly the wealth of valuable ingredients that made me decide to include butter in our SELF products. Shea contains unsaturated fats with a large proportion of unsaponifiable components, essential fatty acids, phystosterols, vitamins E, D, A and allantoin. That makes Shea a superfood for the skin... but why... what exactly does that mean for you if you start using our SELF products tomorrow?!

What does SHEA actually do?!

A lot of!
Shea Butter can help many skin problems and conditions: spots, wrinkles, fine lines, itching, sunburn, small wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites and much more... This is due to a very special property that distinguishes Shea from other natural oils: it high content of unsaponifiable parts. These parts contain the most healing and healing properties. The level of healing properties varies up to 17%. (In traditional oils the healing properties are only 1% or less!)

Vitamin A stimulates cell division and collagen production. This improves the texture of your skin and helps against pigment spots, wrinkles and fine lines on your face. It promotes the condition and elasticity of the skin.
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and protects the body against free radicals. Vitamin E ensures that your skin retains moisture and stimulates good blood circulation. It also helps reduce stretch marks and stretch marks.
Allantoin promotes the healing process of your skin and, in combination with Vitamins A and E, helps to combat acne, but also to relieve skin irritations and skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
Vitamin F is rich in essential fatty acids that ensure good hydration of the skin and repairs dry and rough skin.
Finally, cinnamic acid moderately protects the skin against UV rays.

In short: Shea butter is one of the best moisturizing, anti-aging, regenerating and protective natural products in the world!

All our used oils melt at body temperature and are therefore quickly absorbed by the skin without your skin feeling greasy. Shea butter is one of the superfoods that make SELF a vitamin bomb. You just have to try it yourself! 🙂
