Shea butter has become increasingly popular in the last few decades for its exceptional moisturizing and healing qualities. Shea is extracted from fruit on the Karite Tree in Africa, and contains large amounts of antioxidants, and vitamins A, E & F. The quality and effectiveness of Shea butter products can vary greatly, however.
Some of the benefits of Pure Shea Butter are listed below:
* Wrinkles: Used over a 4-6 week time frame, the vitamin F and fatty acids repair skin’s elasticity.
* Skin Ailments: Rashes, peeling, burns, cuts, insect bites, and athletes’ foot are a few irritations that can be aided with the anti-inflammatory properties within Shea, sometimes as short as 3 days.
* Skin repair: Stretch marks, scars, and frost bite can be decreased with consistent use.
Eu’Genia Shea, is one company based out of North Ghana who processes shea butter to be sold for everyday use, pregnancy stretch marks, and dermatological benefits. This particular company boasts that its products contain 95% pure shea butter, while other companies limit to 25%.
The American Shea Butter Institute grades shea products from A, B, C, or F; so, research into your purchase is very important. Yet, even shea butters graded at an F will retain great moisturizing qualities.
To help clients with consistent usage, Eu’Genia Shea, also offers a subscription shipment service for shea butter that departs within 1-2 days so you are never without your supply. An impressive side note found is that the Eu’Genia Shea Company contributes 15% of its company’s profits to its employees’ children’s tuition costs.
