Shea butter…that miracle ingredient with so many uses. Aloe and bee naturals have nothing on shea butter. This edible health phenomenon is extracted from the African karite tree. While rich in vitamin A and vitamin E, it also possesses the unique quality of having an abundance of plant sterols, like oleic acid and stearic, important fatty acids with great healing potential. Here are five uses of shea butter that render superior results:
- Great as a hair conditioner.
- Treat dark spots, stretch marks, wrinkles and blemishes.
- Relieves pain and swelling from arthritis.
- Use as a sunscreen or for diaper rash.
- Treats and soothes eczema and minor burns.
