Mother Nature bestowed many gifts upon mankind — and she didn’t leave out skin-care ingredients among her wonderful gifts. Shea, cocoa and mango butters all deliver benefits to the skin that work to nourish and hydrate. Each of these butters can be naturally derived from the earth and provide the skin with nourishment and moisture — things that every type of skin needs and appreciates.
Shea Butter Benefits
Shea butter is chock-full of vitamin A and is deeply moisturizing. Shea is derived from nuts that grow on trees in West and Central Africa, and it is known for being so nourishing to the skin that even in Africa’s dry climate it works to soothe thirsty skin. The American Shea Institutes notes that shea butter possesses the ability to improve pesky skin blemishes, eczema, wrinkles and dermatitis. Shea is also known to soothe insect bites, sunburn and frostbite. This butter packs a powerful punch for an array of skin ailments.
