Is Shea Butter Good for your Face

Posted by Debbie van Grieken on

We all want to have that natural glow. Sifting through the volume of products available on the market that promise us happiness can be complicated and expensive.

Skincare has become such a massive industry funneling more and more money into marketing and chemical development. What they don’t want you to know is that skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. All of those ingredient names that you can’t pronounce, are not the answer to beautiful skin.

Smooth, supple skin and even skin tone are within reach, and can be achieved with 100% natural, pure ingredients.

Keeping your dry skin hydrated is key to your skin health and to your appearance. Moyaa Shea butter contains the moisturizing elements that are naturally produced by your own skin and also contains a significant amount of Vitamin F, which is made up of fatty acids, the deficiency of which can lead to dry skin in the first place.

You might think that using something with the word “butter” in it would be a mistake to use on oily/acne skin. Quite the opposite! Shea butter is comparatively less comedogenic than other oils, and is frequently used to treat acne because of the fatty acids in the Vitamin F. People who are acne prone tend to have low linoleic acid content in their skin, so Shea butter addresses this need, helping to clear the skin.

Shea butter contains an antioxidant called cinnamic acid. While “acid” also doesn’t sound like it would be something that’s good for your skin, it’s this property which acts as an anti-inflammatory and as a natural sunscreen somewhere between a 3 to 6 SPF. 

Shea butter has another benefit for aging and wrinkles in the form of Vitamin A, which is the most effective vitamin for preventing and reducing or removing wrinkles by boosting collagen production. Vitamin E, another antioxidant found in Shea butter, may help prevent damage caused by free radicals that do everything from change the skin color to cause it to lose its elasticity by breaking down the skin’s collagen.

Moyaa Shea Butter has a wonderful collection of Shea butters either unscented or with the scent of essential oils added.
