Shea butter is created from the nut of the karate shea tree, that can be found in Africa. Unrefined, raw shea butter contains many vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. It has a long history of use for moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. The benefits of shea butter extend from your head to your toes, it soothes and hydrates, and has a balancing effect on your skin. It can be used as a treatment for a dry scalp, chapped lips, dry skin, and soften cracked skin.
