100% Organic Shea Butter, €18.00 from purelyorganic.ie

Laboratoire Altho’s range of Shea Butters are miracle workers on the skin. Shea Butter has high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins making it ideal for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone and soothe your skin.

A recent study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations.

Purely Organic’s Shea butter, scented with essential oils, is extremely effective at regenerating damaged skin. It is also known for deeply nourishing hair.
