Creamy, raw African shea butter is infused with the healing properties of calendula, and the addition of jojoba oil infused with rosemary, lavender and plantain provides an all natural healing boost to this moisturizing balm.
Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nuts of the African shea tree. Solid at room temperature, it contains high levels of linoleic acid and oleic acid. These two acids, crucial to the health of the skin, work together to reduce inflammation and deeply penetrate the skin providing much needed moisture. This deep penetration is why shea butter is well loved for its ability to moisturize without leaving the skin feeling oily.
By boosting collagen production and promoting new cell generation, shea butter can help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines that environmental stress and aging can create on skin.
Shea butter can also be used to condition and nourish hair.
