When it comes to the benefits of Shea butter, listing the things this miracle ingredient doesn’t do would be a much shorter list than going through all its attributes. Shea butter treats dry and itchy skin, insect bites, it can be used as shaving cream, heal skin cracks, treat muscle fatigue, and can even help prevent stretch marks.

Shea butter has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties, which help to minimize the look of puffiness under eyes and blur the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Shea butter can be used to reduce the look of blemishes, with many lotions that use Shea butter safe for use on the face. The miracle ingredient also helps to hydrate dry skin, making it ideal for use as a body moisturizer.

3. Unrefined Ivory Shea Butter

We can’t technically say that Unrefined Ivory Shea Butter can do everything, but this multifunction product comes pretty close. Our team loves that the butter comes in a resealable pouch and with an e-booklet listing all the things Shea Butter can be used for, including 20 DIY skin care recipes, how to treat eczema, how to reduce inflammation and more.
