Shea Oil Fun Facts

Shea Oil may boost collagen production, promoting firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

This luxurious oil can be used as a natural makeup remover, effectively and gently removing makeup while nourishing the skin.

Shea Oil has a more fluid texture compared to Shea Butter, making it a fantastic addition for homemade hair masks and cosmetic formulations.

What is Shea Oil?

Shea Oil is derived from an economically significant plant species, Vitellaria paradoxa, primarily found in West Africa. This plant's history is closely tied to the region's cultural, economic, and cosmetic practices. 

Shea butter, extracted from the kernels of shea fruit, has been a cornerstone of West African traditions for centuries. Its versatile applications have made it valuable in both food and cosmetic industries

The oil extracted from the shea butter-making process, known as Shea Oil, is a valuable byproduct that carries its own set of benefits. This oil is rich in fatty acids, including palmitic and oleic acids, which may deeply moisturize the skin when applied topically. 

In modern times, Shea Oil is often included in various hair care products and skincare formulations. Its reputation for moisturization and nourishment has made it a wonderful addition to cosmetics and personal care products.
