What It Does

A plant lipid derived from the karite tree, shea butter has antioxidants, vitamins, skin-replenishing fatty acids that moisturize and heal dry skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and boost collagen production.

Why It Works

The antioxidants and fatty acids in shea butter work to prevent signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as hydrating and moisturizing the skin. It works like an emollient to soften and smooth the skin.
