I use Shea butter as the base for the body butter. It delivers key anti-inflammatory and anti-aging components right into the skin. Shea contains natural vitamins and fatty acids which make it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing.
It helps protect the skin's natural oils. It also aids in the skin's natural collagen production (who doesn't love a little collagen), softens and strengthens your skin, and helps with wrinkle reduction (yes please). Go ahead and apply some to your face! It's an all around amazing butter to use on your skin.
