Healing Properties
The fatty acids in shea make it nature's gift to our skin. It moisturizes but doesn't leave your skin greasy because of its linoleic and oleic acid, allowing it to be easily absorbed by the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help heal the skin of dryness, or weathering. And the vitamin E and A content help fight free radicals.
