Benefits of Using Shea Butter

Shea butter has the ability to lock in moisture by creating a protective barrier preventing the evaporation of moisture for your skin. We recommend using shea butter after a shower or after washing your hands. Shea butter also acts as an emollient which means it simultaneously absorbs into your skin smoothing and softening your skin.
