Shea Butter: The More the Better

We have all heard the saying that sometimes “less is more.” Well when it comes to Shea Butter this simply not true because more is always better. There are two categories of Shea Butter –based skin care products. The first category is those products which contain 5% or less of Shea Butter. The second category is the shea butter skin care that contains 10 % or more.

The products in the second category deliver greater moisturization and healing effects to the skin. In fact, studies have shown that most effective products were those that contain at least 15% Shea Butter. This category produced greater antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as better healing capabilities.

So, buyer beware! Be sure to read the label of your products to ensure that you are receiving high-potent skin care. Just because the front of your skin carecontainer reads the words “Shea Butter” on it, it does not mean Shea Butter is one of the main ingredients at the recommended 15% or greater strength.
