shea butter is the fat that is extracted from shea tree nuts. the butter contains essential fatty acids, vitamins, and polyphenols to quickly heal skin irritations and seal in moisture.
one of my favorite things about shea butter is how incredibly healing it is. its antioxidants battle free radicals and reduce sun damage while minimizing fine lines and dark spots caused by excessive UV light. shea butter is anti-inflammatory, meaning it softens swelling and redness. this makes it a super ingredient when dealing with irritation, cuts and bruises, and scarring.
shea butter balances your natural oil production, making it ideal for all skin types, even oily. dry skin will benefit from applying some type of hydration to skin – either just straight water or may I recommend the Flora Mist – then locking in that hydration with the Flora Balm.
