When shea butter is melted, the heating process can take away some of it’s effectiveness. Use for moisturizing and rejuvenating skin and hair. Shea butter stimulates cellular activity and fights the effects of aging and repairs rough, damaged skin. Protects skin from wind, cold, and sun damage. Keeps healthy skin vibrant.
