Shea Butter is a popular ingredient in numerous anti-aging creams on sale today, due to its anti inflammatory and soothing properties. It is also sold by itself as a stand alone cream. Shea butter is derived from the Shea tree, which is found in Africa. It is a slightly yellowish natural fat that is extracted from the fruit of the Shea tree by crushing and boiling. It is used in skin care products and also in cosmetics due to its moisturizing and emollient properties.

Product Details

As a result of its moisturizing properties Shea Butter is particularly effective and useful for those who suffer from dry skin. Those who suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema also may find it useful. It has also been found to have some effect as a soothing agent after a user has spent time in the sun. Anti-aging creams that contain Shea Butter can be bought in retail stores and online. It is a particular popular ingredient in anti-aging creams that are marketed as being made up of ‘natural ingredients.’ Stand-alone creams made only of Shea Butter can normally be purchased relatively inexpensively. Although there is no doubt regarding the moisturizing abilities of Shea Butter, there is no concrete evidence that it is useful in combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and lines. If you use Shea Butter it is unlikely to do your skin any harm, although it is not a substance that is suitable for anyone suffering from oily skin due to the oily nature of the butter.

The Good

  • Shea Butter as a stand alone product can normally be purchased relatively cheaply.
  • Anti-aging creams containing Shea Butter can be purchased from online stores.
  • Shea Butter is said to have excellent moisturizing properties.

The Bad

  • Anti-aging creams that contain Shea Butter are not suitable for oily skins.
  • Although Shea Butter may help those who suffer from dry skin due to its excellent moisturizing qualities, there is no real evidence that it can eliminate wrinkles and lines.
  • Shea butter can cause allergic reactions when applied to certain skin types.
  • It is likely that powerful peptide combinations such as Matrixyl 3000 are more effective than Shea Butter in combating the signs of aging.

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt that Shea Butter is a useful product to have due to its undeniable high moisturizing and emollient qualities. It can be used to sooth the skin after sunbathing, or if you have been burnt. It is also helpful if you have dry skin or suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. However, as far as combating aging we believe that there are more effective ingredients available.
