Extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, Shea Butter contains skin healing and moisturising properties which help to reduce inflammation and calm the skin. It is rich in Vitamin A & F, both of which are known to support the treatment of red atopic skin conditions. Shea Butter also contains Tocopherol, otherwise known as Vitamin E, which is both a nutrient as well as an anti-oxidant. Vitamin E neutralises free radicals that can damage skin cells. Research shows that long term use of Shea Butter can significantly heal skin damage and improve skin moisture.
