Shea Butter: An Ancient Ingredient Finds New Uses

Shea Butter: An Ancient Ingredient Finds New Uses
Shea Butter: An Ancient Ingredient Finds New Uses: Main Image
Shea butter is an emollient and humectant, which means it soothes and softens skin, while at the same time reducing moisture loss
Shea butter is a solid fat obtained from the nut of the African shea tree. For thousands of years, shea butter appears to have been used as a salve with skin-healing properties. It has found more recent use in cosmetic skin and hair care products, shaving creams, and hand and body lotions.

Shea butter is an emollient and humectant, which means it soothes and softens skin, while at the same time reducing moisture loss. Proponents of shea butter claim it can reduce the visibility of wrinkles and blemishes; prevent stretch marks during pregnancy; and treat dry and peeling skin, frostbite, insect bites, sunburn, muscle aches, poison ivy and oak rashes, eczema, dermatitis, and burns.

Clinical research has not yet validated the numerous claims about shea butter's positive effects on skin and hair, though many people report improved skin and hair health when using shea butter products. Cell and animal studies suggest shea butter may have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer abilities, though these effects have not been proven in human clinical trials.

Shea butter should be used with caution in terms of applying directly on broken skin or on skin areas affected by infections, psoriasis, or other serious skin conditions. Some shea butter products have added fragrances and other ingredients, and these may irritate sensitive skin; test on a small area of your skin before using on larger areas. Opt for a fair trade product if you have concerns about how shea butter is produced, or about how the shea butter producers are treated and paid for their work.

        Comments about SENSIBILITY SOAPS Nourish Skin™ Organic Raw Shea Butter Intensive Moisturizer:

        So, this product is the first time I have ever purchased anything from GNC. I normally purchase my shea butter from another online source, but they were sold out, so I decided to try GNC's Organic Raw Shea Butter.

        When I received the order I was in disbelief; this product is not raw unrefined shea butter. The shea butter is white and has no smell; in its natural state, shea butter smells like nuts, and usually tends to be yellow. I decided to go ahead and keep this product because I wanted to see if it worked despite it being refined. Unfortunately, this product has done nothing for me, I have been using it on my feet exclusively for the last month and a half. My feet are now dry like the Sahara desert. I will not be purchasing this product again.

            I really wanted to like it, I was so excited when I purchased this, however I'm disappointed. I use it as a nightcream, but I'm not sure it ever soaks in. Sometimes I put it on at 7:00 pm, to give it time to soak in, but it never does. I'm convinced it all goes on my pillow when I go to bed. After further research, I've discovered this is refined shea butter, it isn't supposed to be as hard, and shouldn't have a white color, so I will search for unrefined shea butter, oh well.

                  Best Shea Butter I have bought. It doesn't have the strong smell that other shea butters have and it works great for my baby's skin and hair. Cheapest price around on GNCs website especialy if you have a coupon code or free shipping through Shoprunner.

                  I had been to 5 or 6 dermatoligists over the years with little or no success for excema. A friend suggested this cream and it brought amazing results.I could'nt understand and still can't why these learned doctors did'nt suggest this instead of the scrips they would write.

                    My daughter has severe eczema and this has been a wonderful product to help ease the itch. The only downfall is it is rather difficult to get out of the container. One really needs to warm it up before use otherwise you have to dig at it.
