The Benefits of Shea Butter

Shea Butter. You hear about it all the time … so what are the benefits of shea butter? And why do we at Jordan Essentials looooove it so much?

Shea (pronounced “shay”) butter comes from the nut of the shea tree, which grows in Africa. It’s packed with Vitamin A and E, and according to the American Shea Butter Institute, there are some powerful reasons to use shea butter, which include:

  • Dry skin
  • Itchy skin
  • Eczema
  • Skin damage from heat
  • Small wounds

We love shea butter because it’s a rich, natural moisturizer known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.

You’ll find it in everything from our Magnesium Lotion (ideal for achy, tired muscles) to our Hand & Body Lotion (for everyday moisturizing), our Lip Butter (so you can look fabulous AND moisturize!), our hair conditioner (for luscious locks), and of course, our line of Shea Body Butters (for deep moisturizing).

So whether it’s everyday care or some extra TLC for your hair, face, or skin, shea butter’s benefits play an important role in our mission at Jordan Essentials to help everyone enjoy “healthy skin and a healthy life.”
