Shea Butter: Nourishing, protective and softening

What is Shea Butter?

Shea Butter, harvested from shea nuts, a tree native to West Africa, has been known for centuries for its nourishing, protective and softening properties. This vegetable butter is an essential ingredient in beauty rituals around the world.

The benefits on the skin

  1. Nourishing Effect:

Shea Butter is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, making it an excellent nourishing agent for the skin. By penetrating deep into the epidermis, it intensely hydrates the skin, leaving a feeling of comfort and suppleness. Its fatty acids, such as oleic acid and stearic acid, restore the skin's lipid barrier, thus preventing loss of hydration and protecting against external aggressions. Thanks to its rich and creamy texture, shea butter is perfect for dry and dehydrated skin, as well as rough areas.

2. Protective Effect:

In addition to its nourishing properties, Shea Butter acts as a protective shield for the skin. Thanks to its high content of unsaponifiables, natural compounds which preserve the integrity of the skin, it protects against environmental aggressions such as wind, cold and UV rays. By forming a protective film on the skin's surface, it prevents dehydration and strengthens the skin barrier, helping to maintain moisture balance and prevent damage caused by free radicals. This protective action makes it a valuable ally in protecting the skin from external aggressions and maintaining its health and vitality.

3. Softening Effect

Finally, Shea Butter has exceptional softening properties for the skin. By smoothing the surface of the epidermis, it reduces sensations of roughness and tightness, leaving the skin soft and creamy to the touch. Thanks to its emollient molecules, it softens the skin and improves its texture, leaving it supple and silky. This softening action is ideal for irritated and sensitive skin, as well as skin prone to irritation and redness. By soothing feelings of discomfort, it provides a feeling of well-being and comfort to the skin, restoring its natural radiance.
