Shea butter is an excellent moisturizing agent that melts on contact with the skin, protects against
water loss and outside weathering (sun, snow, rain and wind), and boosts the protective layer and
barrier repair function of the skin. It hydrates, moisturizes, softens and smooths dry, dehydrated
and damaged skin.
