Shea butter (shea butter, shea butter) is rich in skin and hair enhancing antioxidants such as vitamins A and E. The fatty acids in shea butter have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter therefore helps reduce skin inflammations such as acne and protects against signs of premature aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. The skin is hydrated and cell regeneration is promoted.
