Shea butter is a fat derived from shea trees, which are native to West Africa. Regarded as a skin superfood that is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, it’s known for its ability to nourish and soften even the driest, most irritated skin. Shea butter has been used both cosmetically and medicinally (as a healing and soothing topical) for centuries.
