Shea is an off white fatty substance obtained from the nuts of the Shea tree from West Africa. This butter promotes youthful skin, reducing fine lines and dryness. The vitamins A, E and F as well as the oleic, stearic and linoleic acid, help maintain overall health of the skin and hair, as well as keeping the skin blemish free. Due to this mixture of natural vitamins and essential fatty acids, this butter is exceptionally nourishing and moisturising for your skin. This butter can help protect the skin’s natural sebum and oils, reduce inflammation and soften and strengthen the skin.

 

You can use Fushi’s Shea Butter as a cleanser, as it has cleansing abilities which penetrate the pores and expels clogged dirt and oil accumulation allowing the skin to breathe. Shea Butter benefits also include wound healing and anti-bacterial properties to heal skin in a healthy and soothing way.

 

Vitamins and Essential Fatty Acids

 

Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that is also a powerful antioxidant, which contributes to healthy skin. Antioxidants are involved in reducing inflammation through fighting free radical damage, which can help maintain healthy, clear skin. Vitamin A is known to be beneficial for helping to fight acne and improving the collagen within the skin. This vitamin is necessary for wound healing and skin re-growth and it is needed to support skin cells both internally and externally.

 

Vitamin E is also an antioxidant that protects and repairs the skin. These molecules can repair the damages to the collagen in your skin. Your body cannot produce Vitamin E on its own which means you have to make sure you are getting enough of this nutrient both externally and internally through your diet. This vitamin can also help prevent premature aging and skin damage, reduce sunburn, and reduce exposure to UV radiation. Shea Butter naturally offers protection of SPF 6!

 

Vitamin F is vital for skin health, the mucous membranes, and bringing suppleness and to bring a youthful appearance to the skin.

 

Oleic Acid is responsible for the thick texture that the Butter is known for. This acid is very moisturising for the skin and prevents the skin from losing moisture.

 

Stearic Acid is an essential fatty acid in Shea Butter which also helps to create the thickness the texture of the butter. This is acid is found in the protective layer of human skin, which can help maintain the skins protective barrier.

 

Linoleic Acid is an essential fatty acid in Shea which is known to occur in a lesser percentage than the previous two EFA’s. This essential fatty acid is especially beneficial for people with acne, and balances with the Oleic acid with a lighter, less penetrative hydration level.

 

Moisturise and Condition your Skin!

Shea butter will not leave your skin greasy and will not clog your pores due to being 0 on the comedogenic scale. This means that acne sufferers should not fear using this Shea Butter as it is really great and safe for all skin types, and anti-inflammatory, which can help heal wounds!

 

Shea Butter contains a conditioning agent called allantoin which is a natural skin softener, which is responsible for soothing the outer layers of the skin. This can act as a type of lubricant which can prevent the loss of water by providing a protective barrier. Fushi’s unrefined, organic Shea butter is a product that will keep the skin from feeling dry, soften the skin and protect the skin from external forces, such as wind and the cold weather.

 

Antioxidants and Anti-ageing factors!

Shea butter has been known to prevent extrinsic ageing, which is caused by the environment in which we live. There are many factors which come into play when considering extrinsic aging. The main factors being pollution, stress, sleep, nutrition and the sun. Shea Butter is considered to be anti-aging as it has been known to be beneficial for some of these factors.

 

Shea Butter is very high in antioxidants which fight free radicals and prevent damage caused by environmental factors. Shea Butter is also high in Phytosterols which act as UV protection, and can help prevent sun exposure damage to the skin. The Phytosterols can contribute to reducing the redness and irritation. Shea butter also shares a polyphenol which is found in Green tea, which has some anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties which help prevent blemishes when it is used as part of a good skin care routine.
