What is shea butter?

Shea butter is extracted from the fruit kernel of the shea tree most commonly found in several parts of West Africa. This butter is extremely healing and demulcent to the skin.

It helps alleviate the skin from inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and eczema.

Due to its rich consistency, this moisturizer is often mixed with other ingredients to make it easier for one’s skin to absorb it.
