Known primarily for its ability to provide deep moisture and replenish the skin, shea butter also has powerful calming and anti-aging qualities as it is rich in compounds such as linoleic and stearic acid. Full of essential fatty acids and vitamins A and E which reduce skin inflammation and fight free radical damage, shea butter also minimizes the appearance of aging in the skin by restoring elasticity and functions to prevent the formation of wrinkles and softens and smoothes existing ones.
