Transcript of "Benefits Of African Shea Butter"

  1. 1. DISCOVERING THE BENEFITS OF AFRICAN SHEA BUTTER<br />
  2. 2. The History Behind The Magic <br />African Shea butter originated over 2,000 years ago from the Karite Nut Tree, found only in West Africa. After 20 years the Karite Nut Tree grows dark green fruits and from June to July these fruits fall to the ground and are harvested by those of West Africa. Each fruit contains a nut but before collecting the fruits and extracting the nuts a prayer is said to thank mother-nature for her gift. This has been the tradition for years in The Republic of Ghana. After the nuts are taken from the fruit they are crushed and boiled, which results in a natural fat that is slightly yellow in color. <br />

Its hydrating properties relax the face skin which eases respiration. Shea butter has only recently been exported for use on other continents. It has a creamy substance that is<br />edible and even sometimes used in the chocolate industry as a substitute for cocoa butter. It was traditionally used for water proofing wax, improve durability of wood in instruments, hairdressing, candle making, and medical ointments. Other more modern uses of African Shea butter include:<br /><ul><li>Hair conditioners
  23. 23. Chocolate fillings
  24. 24. Soaps
  25. 25. Sun blocking lotion
  26. 26. Leather conditioners</li></li></ul><li>Beware of Imitators<br />Shea butters that are produced from chemicals to imitate the natural African Shea butter aren’t nearly as beneficial for the skin. Many of the chemicals clog pores or cause further damage to the skin. One hundred percent all natural Shea butter have been found to be the most beneficial.<br />
