Shea butter, Cocoa powder or Mango oil for skin care


Butter is made from milk, which is stirred in fresh milk to remove some of the water from the thick consistency on the top.
Perhaps one of the most popular vegetable butter is shea. It is extracted from the nuts of the sacred Karite tree, which means “Tree of Life” that grows mainly in West and Central Africa.  Raw shea butter has an ivory color with a nutty, earthy odor to it.  This semi-solid butter contains vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids like vitamin A, E, D and F and is ideal for sensitive skin.  The emollient and healing properties make shea butter an all around great choice for serious skin moisturizing!
Shea butter is a super food derived from shea trees.Shea butter is a great source of vitamins and nutrients that can help the skin in a variety of ways.It also helps protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays and naturally lifts the skin.

Cacao beans contain vitamins E and K.  The powerful antioxidant in cocoa butter, vitamin E, is a natural collagen booster.  This allows cocoa butter to help diminish stretch marks, lessen the appearance of scar tissue, improve the skins elasticity and allows the skin to heal more effectively.  It also contributes to collagen production which in turn also aids with improving the elasticity of the skin.

The quickly absorbing mango butter instantly increases moisture and production of collagen to aid in skins elasticity while slowing the degeneration of skin cells.  Some swear by the benefits of mango butter for almost endless topical uses such as helping pre or post sunburn, frostbite, skin rashes, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or frizzy hair while also relieving the itchiness from insect bites!  While there is very little clinical research on the benefits of mango butter, some also use for pregnancy stretch marks, soothe acne scars, to calm allergies or stimulate the scalp for healthy hair growth.
