What is natural shea butter, why should you use natural skin care products that contain natural shea butter?

The whole point to natural skin care products is that they contain natural ingredients. Ingredients that are both naturally occurring and are safe to use. Note that there are natural substances that are definitely unsafe to use, so the bit about safe to use in the products is an important point.

Natural Shea Butter is one of these ingredients. Shea butter is one of the most important ingredients to find in the very best natural skin care products. Lets look at what Natural Shea Butter is and why you should be using skin care products that have it listed in the ingredients.

Shea butter comes from the seed from the nut of the Shea tree, found in Africa, technically named Butyrospermum parkii after Mr Mungo Park who is credited with discovering it in the 1800s. The fruit, or nut, of the tree is picked then dried and the fat is extracted from the seed by a process of boiling and pressure.

The resultant product is shea butter and it is in fact the extracted oils, or fats, of the Shea nut.

Why is it good for your skin? It is one of the very best naturally occurring moisturizers. One of the reasons for this is that the oils in natural Shea Butter are virtually identical to those produced by the sebaceous glands of the skin, so using natural skin care products with Shea Butter is like applying your skin’s own moisturizer. Perfect.

It also softens the skin and helps reduce inflammation, one of the more damaging skin conditions, and reduces scars and blemishes on the skin as well as brown spots or skin age spots.

More than this, it is highly effective at reducing stretch marks and wrinkles.

When applied to the skin it is completely absorbed and leaves no residue on the surface of the skin. Studies have shown visible improvements in the skin in 4 to 6 weeks.

The best Natural Shea Butter is cold pressed, just like the best olive oil is cold pressed, for the same reasons. It produces the real natural oil, free from any chemical additive that is added to the product during chemical extraction.

The worlds best natural skin care products use Shea Butter in their products and the results are truly exceptional. You can try their products risk free as well, because they offer a money back guarantee, something very rare in the skin care industry.

Hopefully that explains what Natural Shea Butter is, and why it’s so good for your skin. If you already understand the benefits of using a top quality natural skin care product then you now know why these products work so well on your skin.

We’ve talked about chemicals in cosmetics and skin care products, what about chemicals in natural skin care products?

There’s all sorts of unnatural chemicals in mainstream big brand name skincare products, and we’ve talked about some of them on our page about dangerous ingredients in skin care products.

And some of them can be quite worrying.

And we’ve also talked about natural skin care products, and how important it is to avoid nasty chemical ingredients in skin care products by buying natural skin care products that are made from naturally occurring ingredients that are known to be safe for human consumption.

As well we’ve said that we believe that the products of Xtend Life are the best, most effective, and safest natural skin care products in the world.

So why is it that when you look on the label of Xtend Life products you see chemicals listed there?

Here’s why. There’s something called the “International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients”.

It’s called the INCI for short.

It’s a way of standardizing naming of cosmetic ingredients by use of their chemical names. And Xtend Life conforms to the standard of the INCI. International law requires that ingredients are named according to the INCI name.

Here’s an example. We’ve mentioned Shea Butter before, it’s the oil from the nut of the Shea tree in Africa and is used widely there as a cooking oil, but is also a fantastic natural moisturizer.

But it isn’t called Shea Butter on the labels, it’s INCI name is Butyrospermum Parkii.

There’s lots of other examples, but we’re sure you see the point.
So when you look on the label of an Xtend Life skin care product and see all sorts of strange chemical sounding ingredients you know why.
