Shea Butter: A Natural and Safer Moisturizer

It is important to our body that the ingredients in our personal care products are safe and natural because our skin absorbs whatever is on it. This is why is it worth seeking better alternatives such as shea butter products.

Feb. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- When was the last time you read the ingredients label of your personal care products? Could you pronounce those ingredients and ascertain that they are safe to use? (I wouldn’t mind turning a blind eye if you are doing so right now.)

Having personal care products with ingredients that you can not only pronounce, but know that they are safe, is important to your body. As you may know, the skin is our largest organ. Our skin not only detoxifies but can also absorb whatever is on it such as lotion, the mist of perfume, shampoo and soap suds. If the ingredients in your skincare products are of questionable nature, it is advisable to switch to using products with high quality, natural ingredients. A good skincare brand to look into is Shea Moisture that sells shea butter merchandise for the face, body, and hair.

If you have never heard of shea butter, it is a natural cream-colored fat that is well-known for its moisturizing properties. Shea butter is made from nuts of shea trees in Africa that can take as many as thirty years to bear harvest. Shea butter has sometimes been referred to as “women’s gold” because its the only source of income for economically disadvantaged women and hints at better prospects for many producers. Purchasing shea butter products from companies who are committed in their mission to help support local economies in Africa may be a factor you consider when deciding which brand to buy.  An example of a socially responsible company is Shea Moisture, who pays above market prices for ingredients from their suppliers to help improve their standard of living.

Shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa before its beneficial properties was recognized by other countries. Shea butter has many benefits some of which includes relieving dry skin and scalp, healing blemishes and eczema, keeping wrinkles at bay, soothing minor burns,  minimizing the appearance of stretch marks, and restoring lost hair luster. Due to the healing properties of shea butter, it has been incorporated into many personal care products such as lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and soaps. A few notable products from the Shea Moisture line includes Lavender & Wildflower Infused Raw Shea Butter for moisturizing dry skin (, Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie  that conditions and adds body and shine to hair (, and Organic Bar African Black Soap that helps to treat eczema, acne, oily skin, psoriasis, and other skin ailments ( Visit for more information.
