Shea butter has increasingly gained popularity in the beauty industry, and you may often find shea butter as a featured ingredient in some of your favorite products. At Homemade Shea, we believe that shea butter is the main attraction, not a side-show! Using raw shea butter allows you to receive the full benefits of the shea nut, including its vitamins, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties. Here are a few reasons to use raw shea butter in your daily routine:
Shea Butter helps to alleviate dry skin, mild-to-moderate eczema, and atopic dermatitis.
Using raw shea butter on your face and body can help to soothe skin irritation due to the anti-inflammatory properties from its cinnamic acid. Because of the soft texture of Homemade Shea’s “Just Shea”, our raw shea butter can be easily applied to affected areas with the consistency of thick body butter – without any of the additives.
Shea Butter can be used in its solid or liquid oil form.
Many people use raw shea butter in its solid form, but did you know that many spas and massage parlors use raw shea butter as an oil? If you ever want to use a nutrient-packed body or scalp oil treatment, try warming the shea butter in the microwave for ~30-45 seconds, or until it melts. After allowing it to cool for 1-2 minutes, apply it to your skin and/or hair for a luxurious treat!
Tame the flyaways!
Shea butter is fantastic for taming those pesky flyaway hairs. If you’re ever looking for the perfect product to tame frizzy or flyaway hair, opt for all-natural shea butter to keep those hairs down, and to give your hair some much-needed moisture while you’re at it.
Shea butter has been used for centuries as the secret to soft, supple, and moisturized skin for many people. Using raw shea butter allows you to receive the full benefits of the shea tree nut, rather than using products that merely contain shea butter, but are diluted for mass production. Try a jar of our all-natural, hand-made shea butter, and feel the difference for yourself!
