All About Products with Shea Butter
100% pure natural shea butter is a natural source of vitamin A cream. It has amazing healing & moisturizing properties for the skin. Vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving a number of skin conditions: including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema & dermatitis. Not all shea butter is equal. Only high-quality premium shea butter can offer the benefits mentioned. Once it ages or loses its natural integrity, many of these wonderful benefits are lost.
Most seed oils can be dividing into 2 important fractions. (Note: A simple
definition of fraction in chemistry is a quantity collected from a sample or batch of a substance in a separation process. In such process, a mixture is separated into parts, which have compositions that vary according to the test conducted.) The first fraction is called the saponifiable fraction, which contains most of the moisturizing properties. The second fraction is called the nonsaponifiable fraction, which contains most of the healing properties.
What sets shea butter apart from the other seed oils is its exceptional healing fraction. This contains important nutrients, vitamins, and other valuable things required for healing. In other seed oils, this healing fraction is very small, often around 1% or less, compared to up to 17% in good quality shea butter. It is because of these unique healing properties that the shea tree got its name, the karate tree, which means the TREE OF LIFE.
