If you’ve tried one of the natural skin care products or natural moisturizers from Jordan Essentials, then chances are that you’ve encountered the wonderful ingredient called shea butter. Shea butter is also featured in our magnesium lotion. But if you’re not a total natural health nut like the team at Jordan Essentials, then you may not be aware of what makes shea butter such a great ingredient for a natural moisturizer. Today, Jordan Essentials offers a profile of the shea tree.
The shea tree grows mostly in Africa, which means it travels a long way to become part of a Jordan Essentials magnesium lotion. The tree bears fruit with a sizeable seed. It is from this seed that what we call shea butter is derived. Shea butter is the fat extracted from the seed of the shea fruit. This “butter,” which has a consistency much like solid coconut oil, is what we use in our natural skin care products, such as our magnesium lotion, to give your skin a look of vitality and health.
In Africa, the pulp of the shea fruit is eaten for its potent nutritious properties. The butter is eaten, too, because of its high concentration of dietary fats, which means it’s full of energy.
Alongside being used for food, shea butter has occasionally been used for medicinal purposes. Some claim that shea butter possesses anti-inflammatory properties and that it has mild UV-blocking properties, making it great for topical applications such as the Jordan Essentials magnesium lotion.
Other uses for shea butter include use as a cooking oil, a waterproof wax, a hair care ingredient, and a decongestant.
As you can see, shea butter looks like a veritable jack-of-all-trades for health. With its high concentrations of stearic and oleic acids, vitamin E and vitamin A, shea butter offers a variety of benefits to your skin. These include great moisturizing and anti-aging properties by boosting cell regeneration and collagen production. The shea butter in Jordan Essentials magnesium lotion can also soothe and prevent very mild burns because of its UV-blocking capabilities.
