There are so many beauty products on the market, it can be quit difficult to decipher not only what’s best for your body, but also what is worth the investment. Shea butter, a natural vitamin A skin cream, is an absolute super product when it comes to giving your skin the nutrients it needs.
The same sebaceous glands found in your skin to help keep it moisturized are also present in shea butter, making this one of the best products you can find to keep your skin smooth and soft. It can even help those afflicted with eczema or psoriasis who have particularly dry and irritated skin. Shea butter can not only remedy dry skin, but can also help preserve the natural oils already present in the skin. However, shea butter has benefits far beyond its moisturizing capabilities. Due to the concentration of vitamin A, shea butter can also help to lessen the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles, sooth skin allergies and bites, and expedite the healing of wounds and burns.
One certainly needs to be aware though that not all shea butters are created equally. Some companies will attempt to make the texture or smell of shea butter more appealing by adding unnatural products, but in doing so disrupt the natural chemical components and therefore lessen the effectiveness of the product. Eugenia Shea, a family owned company with roots in both Ghana and America, sets itself aside from these cheap products, as it is made with 100 percent pure ingredients. Their products are composed of four main ingredients: shea butter, shea oil, baobab oil, and moringa oil. These ingredients are rich in vitamins and minerals which complement each other in order to give your skin optimal nourishment. Depending on your needs, Eugenia offers three types of Shea butter: everyday, pregnancy strength, and dermatological strength.
Eugenia Shea goes beyond providing benefits for the skin, as it helps provide economic opportunities for women in Ghana. The company does this through an education fund, to which they donate 15 percent of their profits. The family owned business strives to continuously help empower women through their products and through their social platforms.
