Shea Butter is the darling of the cosmetics industry. It is a skin nourishing emollient applied to the skin either in its pure form, or mixed in soaps, lotions, creams or shampoos. Unrefined Shea Butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E, F and K and can help repair damaged skin and hair. It also can soothe irritated skin, while moistening the affected area. Shea Butter does not clog pores and easily penetrates the skin.
