Shea Butter

organic shea butterOur products contain only, Australian Certified Organic (ACO) Shea butter.

Shea butter is a triglyceride (fat) and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids. For people who suffer dry skin it is an excellent emollient and nourishes and protects and has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time. This is probably due to its ability to aid in the skin’s natural production of collagen.

Shea butter is known to be high in Vitamins A, E, D and F as well as a high proportion of phytosterols and allantoin, which increases the water content of the upper layers of the skin.
