Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals. Vitamins A and E help to soothe, hydrate, and balance the skin. They also provide skin collagen which assists with wrinkles and other signs of aging. Vitamin F contains essential fatty acids and helps protect and revitalize damaged skin and hair. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin and is a wonderful product for revitalizing dull or dry skin on the body or scalp.
Unrefined Shea butter does not spoil, but some of its health benefits decrease after 18 months.
