Shea Butter is fat (the good kind) that has been extracted from Shea Tree Nuts which are native to West Africa and have been used as a cosmetic ingredient for hundreds of years.
The rich tree-nut oils found in Shea Butter soak into your skin and are rapidly absorbed creating a smooth, soft barrier that seals in moisture whilst reducing redness and swelling in your skin. But don't worry the high levels of linoleic and oleic acids balance each other out ensuring your skin won't look or feel oily after application.
As with the majority of ingredients in our skin care range, Shea Butter is well known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Whilst also being known to boost collagen production and promote new cell generation helping fight the environmental stress and aging that our skin goes through.
The high concentration of fatty acids (again the good kind) and vitamins, make it an ideal ingredient for softening the skin which is why it is included in our CBD Wonder Balm and CBD Lip Balm.
