There are many benefits associated with unrefined, yellow shea butter. Not only does the moisturizer replenish the skin, but it also promotes hair growth and health.
What’s in Shea Moisture?
Shea butter contains linoleic acid, stearic acid, and oleic acid among other nutrients. The moisturizer also has various vitamins that protect against the sun’s rays and other natural elements that can be damaging to the body when excessively absorbed by the skin.
How does it benefit hair?
The ingredients of shea butter are also great for the hair. Many individuals who have followed a regimen that included the moisture have reported hair growth and strength. Some have even tried shea butter after being diagnosed with extreme cases of alopecia and found favorable results.
One of the reasons why shea moisture is such a wonderful nutrient for the hair is because of its coating abilities. The butter serves as a sort of glaze that repels heat and harmful chemicals. You can use the blow dryer and straightener in moderation without worrying about heat damage or hair loss so long as you apply shea butter before styling strands.
If any company knows a thing or two about shea moisture, it is Eu’Genia. Founded by former Wall Street analyst, Naa-Sakle Akuete, Eu’Genia offers the purest form of shea butter around.
Shea nuts that are used for the company’s line are supplied by a corporation that is run by Naa-Sakle’s mother. Many of the women who work at the supply company are mothers themselves and understand the power of shea butter when the product is given to consumers in its purest form.
