Everyone could use a little Shea.

Hydration is a very crucial element for a healthy, balanced body; both inside and out. While it is easy to remember to drink your water it is not so easy to remember that the body needs hydration on the outside too.

Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, E, and F. It is a moisturizer that contains remarkable healing properties for a variety of skin ailments, including eczema, psoriasis and acne. Shea butter is also used to fortify and protect cell membranes, fade scars, minimize the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles.

While everyone should incorporate a little Shea into their skin care routine, if you have any of the following situations, you should always use Shea in your skin care regiment:
  • Those who suffer sunburned, extremely dry, mature, dehydrated and/or pigmented skin
  • Those who work out extensively and have tense muscles
  • If you travel by air often
  • Those who have had recent surgery and would like to minimize scarring
  • If you have been exposed to strong medications or chemotherapy
  • Those who are stressed
  • If you recently had a baby and want to tighten the elasticity quicker and minimize the appearance of stretch marks.
All of Scandle's Body Candles contain Shea butter.

Do share any great skin care products you have found that use Shea butter.
