The Power of Shea Butter
This MAY be one of the TOP 3 best ingredients to use when it comes to Skincare!
Shea Butter is one of our favourite moisturizing ingredients here at Lemongrass House. Not only does it keep your skin silky smooth, it has a great list of amazing benefits.
What is it exactly?
Shea butter comes from the nut found on the shea tree. It's technically the fat found in the nut itself. It’s solid at warm temperatures and has an off-white or ivory colour. Shea trees are native to West Africa, and most shea butter still comes from that region.
At Lemongrass House, you will find Shea Butter in many of our Body Care products & Skincare products. With it's nourishing properties & easy-to-spread consistency, this ingredient makes it perfect for the ultimate skincare routine. Trust us! It does more than just moisturize your skin!
FACT 1: It's been considered safe for ALL skin types.
Unlike most tree nut products, Shea Butter is very low in the proteins that can trigger most nut allergies. Shea butter doesn’t contain chemical irritants known to dry out skin, and it doesn’t clog pores. It’s considered appropriate & beneficial for nearly any skin type.
FACT 2: It won't make your skin oily.
Shea Butter is PACKED with linoleic acid & oleic acid. These two acids balance each other out. Meaning, Shea Butter is easy for your skin to fully absorb & won't leave a residue or leftover product on your skin which can make it look oily.
It's also been reported that Shea Butter may actually PREVENT acne due to the fatty acids it contains!
FACT 3: It's an anti-inflammatory & an antioxidant.
This rich, silky butter contains antioxidant properties like Vitamin A & E, which have used to help with anti-aging products. Shea Butter protects your healthy skin cells from elements that can lead to premature again & dull-looking skin.
