Shea butter, which is extracted from the nuts/seeds of African shea tree, is a featured ingredient in scores of cosmetic and beauty products due to its great moisturizing properties, which are maintained even alongside alkaline substances which could turn other types of fatty oils into soap, and which qualify as a Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), with a structure and function very close to the lipid content produced by the skin's own sebaceous glands. As such, it not only helps clear out dry flakes and rough patches (including on the scalp), but also helps keep the skin's epidermis intact, which helps keep bacteria out and enables regeneration. But it doesn't just moisturize, and plump up the skin (some say it helps with stretch marks), and prevent irritation -- it can do much more, particularly when it remains it its original unrefined state, like this. It also has both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, to help soothe itchy or irritated skin from many causes (including acne); and antioxidant properties, to help prevent damage...especially from the sun! In fact, it can not only help relieve sunburn, but even help prevent it (it has a slight SPF factor, from containing Cinnamic acid esters). And it's so gentle, you could even use it on babies.
Ingredients:Shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii butter) 99.95% - from Biological Agriculture (Certisys Inspection), Tocopherol (natural vitamin E).
Suggested Usage:For use on the body, face or hair, Organic Shea butter is rapidly absorbed into the skin.
For face and body: apply a small amount of Shea butter (use more if desired), and lightly massage upwards.
For hair (to protect it from the elements, or to soften and revitalize damaged or brittle hair): apply from root to tip, cover with a warm towel, and leave on for at least 20 minutes (overnight for best results), and follow by washing hair with a mild shampoo.
Keep product cool (Shea butter melts at body temperature and will liquify if hot).
Some people opt to melt a bit in a pan at very low heat to make it easier to apply, rather than working it in with the palms of your hands.
Warnings:For external use only.
