Raw African Shea butter is known for its very protective, moisturizing and skin strengthening properties, and it is these exact properties that make it perfect for Baby. Just as infants and little children need the proper nutrients to grow healthy and strong bodies, their skin also needs the proper building blocks in order to keep up with them! Unlike run-of-the-mill baby oil, it’s loaded with skin cell building and protecting essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins that give your growing little one all they need for healthy skin, from head to toe.
Moisturizing the skin is especially important after bathing, as the soap strips some of the skin’s naturally protective outer layer. By using Shea butter on your child’s skin you are effectively, easily and safely helping to replace that thin outer barrier, which also contributes to happy and healthy skin cells. It can also be used as a safe and natural healing balm for scrapes, bruises, burns and scratches that happen on toddlers and younger children. It can be used alone, or mixed with other oil such as coconut oil for an all purpose botanical baby balm.

Men get them but I bet they are less concerned. Shea butter has a high level of healing fraction, fatty acids and antioxidants that help heal and build the damaged middle skin that causes those ugly stretch marks.

Shea butter contains cinnamic acid a substance that helps the skin heal. It also contains a moisturiser that’s exactly like the one the skin produces and is anti-inflammatory. This makes Shea butter one powerful, skin-healing substance on small injuries bruises or scrapes. It can be used as a cure for sun burn or frost bite because of its unsaponifiable qualities. (This means it cannot lather or form a soap and therefore traps other healing components apart from the moisturising effect).
