Shea Butter and National Healthy Skin Month-Part 3
Welcome to the third installment of our NATIONAL HEALTHY SKIN MONTH series. Today we’ll talk about Shea Butter’s helpful uses for the following:
Eczema and Psoriasis
One of the best ways to prevent premature aging is to keep the skin soft and supple by moisturizing daily. One of Mother Nature’s most powerful moisturizers is Certified Unrefined Organic Shea Butter. Not only does this plant butter help to reduce premature aging of the skin, the high amounts of vitamin A in Certified Unrefined Organic Shea Butter also help to promote epidermis cell development and fibroblast activity. Vitamin E is also abundant in this plant butter serving as an anti-free radical agent thereby preventing wrinkles.
Eczema and Psoriasis
First, if you have either one of these conditions you must understand that Shea Butter is NOT A DRUG and therefore you should contact a licensed practitioner before using anything to help with these conditions. Many people find that a whole-body approach, i.e diet, exercise, meditation, visualization are necessary to treat these conditions.
At Purely Shea we have received countless testimonials about the effectiveness of Certified Unrefined Organic Shea Butter for these conditions. The phytosterols also known as plant sterols contribute to the improvement of eczema and psoriasis. Shea Butter contains several of these sterols which are responsible for its Anti-Inflammatory effects. Certified Unrefined Organic Shea Butter also contains a remarkably high amount of nonsaponifiable matter. This is the healing fraction Shea Butter responsible for nourishing the skin.
The high amounts of Vitamin E serve as an anti-free radical agent thereby aiding in preventing the deleterious effects of sun and environmental exposure to the skin. Certified Unrefined Organic Shea Butter also contains an all-natural UV absorber with an SPF of about 5.
Tomorrow we will wrap up this series. We hope you liked it!
