Do you know the benefits of shea butter?

Shea butter has carved out a special place for itself in recent years. It is found in beauty products, creams, shampoos and even soaps and bath products. But how can this popularity be explained??

Shea is a natural product obtained from the extraction of oil from the nuts of the Butter Tree, a savannah tree that grows in Central and West Africa. The extracted oil being solid at a temperature below 35C, it takes on the appearance of butter at room temperature, which explains its name, although it is in fact a pure vegetable oil..
