Shea Nut ButterShea nut butter is a versatile natural anti-aging skin care treatment with an amazing range of facial rejuvenating properties.

Organic shea butter can be used in literally a gazillion different DIY homemade anti-aging skin care treatments to produce wonderful results for younger, healthier skin.

Shea butter is made from the fruit of the Shea tree which is found in West and Central regions of Africa.

The nut is harvested from the tree, crushed and boiled which extracts the vegetable fat producing raw shea butter.

Although organic shea butter has a wide range of uses such as a cooking oil and a substitute for cocoa butter in chocolate, it is best known in the cosmetic industry as a versatile ingredient in high end skin, body and hair care products.

Shea Butter is rich emollient, moisturizing and medicinal properties.

In addition, it is one of the few natural substances that have the unique ability to provide protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. (It acts as a purely organic,
natural sunscreen with up to a UV protection factor
of SFP 6!

For years the cosmetic industry has capitalized on the natural attributes of shea butter. . .

The natural healing properties of Shea butter make it a wonderful ingredient for anti-aging skin care. . .

Shea butter has a very low melting point so that when it is applied to the skin it changes from a semi-solid state to a liquid state which is readily absorbed into the skin.

It is non-greasy and has a very faint fragrance. (Although the unrefined shea butter can have a rather pungent aroma, it does dissipate very quickly after application.)
When used as an ingredient for a DIY natural anti-aging skin care treatment, organic shea butter can be combined with a variety of herbs and other organic substances to create a gazillion different homemade facial rejuvenation products; from facial and body scrubs to toners, moisturizers, and masks.

The best form of shea butter to use in order to achieve maximum results is either in the raw, unadulterated state or the Class A, the highest quality grade produced.

Oganic Shea Butter can easily be found in stores that carry natural products as well as in the natural food isle in many markets, department and grocery stores.

Note: The fresher the shea nut butter, the better. Like many all natural, organic substances the potency of the healing and rejuvenating properties of shea nut butter diminishes over the course time.
