Native of West Africa, the shea tree is revered by its various properties in Senegal, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Togo and Benin. Shea butter is the best remedy for women having dry skin.
This vegetable butter can be used to your skin and hair as a treatment, a mask or even a body scrub. It is known for its nourishing and protective properties for skin and hair. It is a treat for dry skin and makes the skin hydrated, soft and shiny. Moreover, it is a nourishing care for dry or frizzy hair and protects the skin against the sun. Since I was a toddler, my mother always used shea butter as a care product, strengthen and heal my skin.
I like shea butter because it is a natural, vegetable butter and multipurpose and has been recognised in the world of cosmetics for its goodness for our skin and hair. It is now standard to see it in the list of ingredients in the beauty products.
So when my skin demands attention, I do not miss to pamper my skin with this fantastic butter !
