Shea butter has been used for thousands of years to heal a variety of skin conditions. There are 5 important tests that reveal the quality of the Healing Fraction also known as the nonsaponifiable fraction:
1. VITAMINS A & E
2. CINNAMIC VALUE
4. NONSAPONIFIABLE MATTER
5. OTHERS: TRITERPENES & LATEX
Various amounts of the above ingredients are sometimes not captured during the extraction process of shea butter resulting in the decreased healing of certain skin conditions. Remember: ALL SHEA BUTTER PRODUCTS ARE NOT EQUAL!
This week we will focus in-depth on each of the healing factors listed above.
