Shea Butter. I’ve seen it in a lot of skin products; lotions, conditioners, shampoos, and creams. There are probably more products though. But what exactly is this shea butter and how can it help me?
So after a quick google search, I found out that shea butter pronounced as ‘shay butter’, is an off-white or ivory colored fat that is extracted from the nut of the Shea tree. I also found out that shea butter is a complex fat and it’s primarily used in cosmetics because of the amount of benefits.
I can tell you’re saying to yourself, “Okay, I know what shea butter is and that it’s a good fat and everything, but what benefits does it have?” Lots! It softens the skin, it reduces inflammation and it helps moisturizes the skin. It is good to use by itself You can use it as a massage oil or a homemade deodorant! It also reduces bags round your eyes and acts as a wrinkle reducer!
Eugenia Shea Butter is a company formed by a mom who was a midwife in Ghana. She revealed one of the industry’s secrets; pure shea butter. It reduces scars and helps skin regeneration as well. She also got enough paid farmers who helped produce this shea butter to grow her business. The founder has exceptionally high standards and served as president to Global Shea Alliance, where she served as president.
They also point out that Eu-genia in Greek means “the origin of goodness”. Something that is all natural and is full of goodness would fit the name of the company very well. This company has been around since 2000 when the mother first recognized a need for other people to have access to Shea Butter. Check it out for yourself and decide if shea butter is right for you.
