When making your own soaps at home, you are faced with a variety of potential ingredients. You can add just about anything to your soap, including favorites like Lavender Essential Oil and Chamomile Extract. Today, we will discuss the popular Shea Butter Soap Base and how it can be beneficial to your skin.

Shea Butter Benefits

  • Shea Butter has slight sunscreen properties. It slightly protects the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. While using a soap or lotion with Shea Butter is helpful for skin protection, it should not be your only form of protection. Always use a traditional sunscreen.
  • Shea Butter is full of vitamins and antioxidants, including Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Each contribute to its ability to benefit your delicate skin. Plus it is great for using on skin to help prevent the appearance of stretch marks.

All Day Moisturizer

  • Shea Butter is also used to moisturize even the driest of skin. It has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, which means it can help your skin to look fuller and younger. The Vitamin F it contains means that it can help retain some of your skin’s elasticity. The result is smoother, tighter skin and a more youthful appearance.
  • The moisturizing quality of Shea Butter makes it a perfect choice for someone looking for a natural remedy for dry or chapped lips. It is also ideal for use as a wonderful moisturizing treatment after a bath.

    So Many Great Uses & Benefits!

    As you can see, using Shea Butter in your homemade soaps, lotions, and shampoos is sure to benefit your entire body from head to toe. You can wash your hair with Shea Butter Shampoo, refreshing and restoring it to its natural beauty. You can lather up your body with Shea Butter Soap, moisturizing and protecting your most important organ — your skin. Last, but not least, you can add an additional layer of protection with the use of a Shea Butter Lotion.
