SHEA NUT BUTTER
Found in Africa, the Shea tree (or Karite tree) is the only source of shea butter and shea nut oil. There are two species from which you can extract this ingredient including Vitellaria Paradoxa and Vitellaria Nilotica. There is a type of fat that can be extracted from the tree that is a yellow color when raw and unrefined. Once it’s been treated, it is an ivory or white color that is ready to be infused in skin, hair, and other body products. If you want to learn about shea butter skin benefits, read on for more information about shea butter, as well as YUNI’s top shea butter products for your skin.
Shea Butter Skin Benefits
This velvety cream made from the nut of the African Shea nut moisturizes your skin, while the acid in the extract supports and protects your skin’s natural barrier function. It also contains lupeol that blocks the function of enzymes that degrade skin proteins. These effects, along with other compounds in the nut which reduce inflammation and absorb UV radiation, help your skin maintain structural integrity and firmness. After consistent usage of shea butter products, you may notice less wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and even acne.
Shea Butter Uses
While the Shea tree does produce nuts that are edible, it is not generally taken internally. Most of the time, shea is used in body products and applied topically. Since shea butter is very gentle on the skin, you can use pure shea butter for your daily skincare routine. To enjoy all the shea butter skin benefits, you can use it on face, body, cuticles, and nails.
