Mother Nature’s Emollient Rich Conditioner: Shea Butter

In our never ending search for the perfect ingredient, shea butter, also known as “Mother Nature’s conditioner,” is one of our favorites. This solid fatty oil produced from the Shea-Karite tree nut grows in the tropics of East and West Africa, as well as regions of west and central Asia. Shea butter is a powerhouse: A miraculous healer for your scalp and hair, with countless healing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Here’s why we love it as an essential ingredient in our products:

Shea butter is a super sealant for the hair. It locks in moisture, soothes frizz and flyaways and “fastens” moisture to your hair, making it a powerful thermal and environmental protectant. Its rich content of bio-active triterpene esters provide beneficial effects and enhanced UV-B protection (Butyrospermum Parkii). This wonder butter is one of our favorite ingredients for smoothing and softening dry, brittle and fragile tresses. Perfect for naturally defining and intensifying curls and waves, providing moisture, hydration, and soft texture for ultimate curl support. Thanks to shea butter, frizz and flyaways are a thing of the past!
