Great to soothe burns and minimize scarring. It's even edible! (Shea is often used in chocolate as a substitute for cocoa butter.) Shea, whether called a butter, or lotion is well-known as a miracle ingredient in cosmetics and lotions. Its use in cosmetics worldwide is relatively new, but shea butter has been widely used in parts of Africa for centuries for moisturizing, healing and cooking. Creamy Shea butter can also be used as a hair conditioner and to fight dandruff.

Shea butter comes from a tree that's indigenous to sub-Saharan West Africa. It's an excellent emollient and anti-inflammatory that's rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, E and K. These vitamins and nutrients are essential to healthy skin because they do the following:
•    Vitamin A: Studies show that vitamin A reduces lines and wrinkles, controls acne and provides some psoriasis relief.
•    Vitamin E: Applying vitamin E to skin helps repair sun damage, reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.

•    Vitamin K: Topical vitamin K reduces bruises, spider veins and wrinkles.

•    Fatty acids: If your skin is dry, inflamed or prone to whiteheads and blackheads, your skin may lack essential fatty acids. Without an adequate supply of these nutrients, skin can produce a more irritating form of sebum, or oil, that can cause acne and skin irritation.

Shea butter creation is a process that's been passed down from one generation of African women to the next. Between June and September, women gather fruit that's fallen to the ground and carry it to their homes in baskets on their heads. The pulp is removed and the nuts are boiled or left to dry in the sun so they don't germinate. The next steps are to roast, crush and pound the seeds, usually with a mortar and pestle. The women then add water to the seeds and knead and beat the mixture into a paste. As foam floats to the surface, it's washed several times to get rid of impurities, and it becomes progressively lighter with each washing. Finally, the concoction is boiled and the top is skimmed off -- this top layer is the prized shea butter. It takes one woman working eight to 10 hours to convert about 22 pounds of shea nuts into butter.
