Mama always said the good stuff for ya skin is always edible like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and even Shea Butter!
Unfortunately, I never listened to her advice. And now 10 years later, Shea Butter has become one of the things I can’t live without.
Here are my top 10 reasons why Shea Butter should be the number one moisturizer next to coconut oil on your dresser:
The Secret Goodness of Shea Butter in 10 Points:
1. First off, it is edible.
Whatever is good outside is always good on the inside. So should your moisturizer.
2. It absorbs quickly into both your skin and hair.
Yes, no grease I promise. And yes, it is perfect for both your skin and hair.
3. It treats many skin irritations such as psoriasis, eczema, and sunburn.
4. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, scars, and stretch marks.

Ever heard the phrase, black skin don’t crack? Well, this is one of the reasons why.
5. Softens the skin and moisturizers dry brittle hair.
6. It is the perfect shaving cream for a smooth silky shave.
7. It is the hallelujah of rough hands and feet.
8. It repairs damaged skin damage from heat (hot grease while cooking, radiation treatment for certain medical problems, etc.)
9. Its so active, it reliefs muscle fatigue, aches, and tension. Especially useful to use before and after strenuous exercise.

In the US and Canada, some alter their Shea Butter in an attempt to give it a better fragrance and texture. Others alter Shea Butter for economic reasons. These alterations may disturb or in some cases destroy the natural integrity of the product. While altered Shea Butter may smell nice, or when mixed with less expensive ingredients may cost much less, in many of such cases, the altered Shea Butter has lost significant properties.
