An Egyptian treasure

Shea butter is a deeply moisturizing skin butter jammed with antioxidant and nutritious properties. Learn about this ingredient´s beautiful properties and how it can help your skin be healthier.


Vitellaria Paradoxa, otherwise known as shea tree, is indigenous to East and West Tropical Africa. Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the tree. It has been used since Cleopatra´s times in Egypt due to its benefits to the skin and hair.

Its Richness

Shea butter is rich in vitamins A, E & C, which help tone and soften the skin. It also contains oleic, linoleic, and stearic acids, which are fatty acids that function as anti-inflammatory agents to help repair and soothe the skin. These nutrients enhance shea butter’s anti-aging effect while also treating common problems such as cracked heels and dry cuticles.

Ayurvedic Ancient Wisdom

In Ayurveda, shea butter is recommended for calming Vata and Pitta skins because they tend to be dry. Shea butter is often mixed with other natural ingredients such as jojoba oil or coconut oil to make it tridoshic and more suitable for the Kapha Dosha.

Its Benefits

· Contains anti-inflammatory agents that reduce swelling and redness
· It strengthens and regenerates skin by enhancing collagen production, helping fight off aging signs
· Contains vitamins A & C, which are known for their anti-aging and healing properties
· Creates a smooth and soft barrier that seals in moisture, helping relieve and nurture sensitive skin
Shea butter is safe in most applications, as long as it is used in moderation. Always do a patch test on a small section of skin before applying it to your face and body. There are not enough studies on shea butter’s side effects, but if you are allergic to nuts, check with your doctor before using shea butter.
