Hidden in the depths of African savannah and derived from the seeds of the holy Shea (Karite) tree, the Shea butter is a precious secret for all those women who love their look.

It is well-known for its beneficial effects from the ancient times and accordingly to historical African evidence, this natural product was used in the beauty regimen of Cleopatra of Egypt.

In the modern beauty world, experts have found that the composition of raw, non reformed Shea butter includes huge amounts of unsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids that give this butter its solid texture at room temperature, and also vitamins A, D, E, Κ και F.

Nowadays, shea butter is very popular cause it can be used in its raw form or as an ingredient of a formula and it also stands out for its countless benefits.

Skin moisturizer

Shea butter is known for its ability to deeply moisturize and soothe skin  due to its concentration of antioxidants and natural vitamins. Meanwhile it protects the moisture of the skin and helps it to remain balanced.

This natural product becomes the ultimate ally against the skin dryness as well as the redness of the skin during winter season, thanks to its softening abilities.

After a long day under the sun during summer, apply the product on your face and body with smooth moves to relieve your skin.
