Shea Butter, Lipids and your Skin Care

One of the primary purposes of the lipids(or fats) in various skincare regimens is to form a barrier to prevent moisture loss when it is absorbed by the outer layers of the skin. This is what keeps our skin soft and supple.

However, with Shea Butter, the lipids serve this function and more! It goes beyond the formation of just a barrier to prevent the loss of moisture. Additionally, it gives your skin anti-inflammatory support which ultimately retards the aging process. It also promotes the regeneration of skin cells while protecting against infection and irritation as it feeds your skin rich moisturizing lipids.

Remember that in addition to applying lipid rich Shea Butter to your skin, you should make sure your diet has ample “good fats” to moisturize from within.
