Shea Butter: Superfood for the Skin
Shea butter is a highly sought after skin and hair care ingredient. No wonder, as Shea Butter is considered a Superfood for the skin. Loaded with vitamins A E and F, Shea Butter will help to protect the integrity of the skin as well as protect it from UV rays. Historically, women have used Shea Butter to stave off premature wrinkles and facial lines. Moreover, the amazing benefits of Shea Butter don't stop there.
However, all Shea Butter is not the same. What should you look for when purchasing Shea Butter? Purchase 100% raw, unfiltered, and unrefined Shea Butter. Unprocessed Shea Butter retains the vitamins and healing properties that feed the skin. Raw and unrefined Shea Butter is light beige to tan in color. Refined or processed Shea Butter is white, and Shea Butter with additives will be a yellow to golden color. The texture of Raw Shea Butter is coarse. It will require warming between your palms before applying it. Lastly, raw Shea Butter will have a slight nutty fragrance. GreenSistah™ Botanicals procures organic, raw, and unfiltered Shea Butter.
