Shea Butter, made from the nuts of an African Shea tree is a widely used ingredient in many anti-aging products. Rich in fatty acids, allantoin, phytosterols and vitamins A, D and E, Shea Butter has healing properties, enhances collagen production and helps to neutralize free radical damage. It’s great for dry skin types with superb moisturizing abilities. Shea Butter can also be used in hair products to help soothe the scalp, eliminate dandruff, soften hair texture and provide moisture.
