Ingredient spotlight: Shea butter

Shea butter ( Butyrospermum parkii ) is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree mainly used in the cosmetics industry for skin and hair related products. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, where it has been used to protect and condition skin which has been damaged.
