14 good reasons to use Shea Butter
SHEA BUTTER IS A DAILY-USE PRODUCT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
Rich in vitamins A, D, E, and F, as well as latex, and particularly recommended for the driest and most mature skins, shea butter has numerous repairing properties, softening the skin and moisturising it in depth. It is beneficial for skin elasticity and protection.
Here are a few good reasons to use WAAM Shea Butter!
FOR BODY AND FACE
1. IT'S A NATURAL "COLD CREAM" TO COMBAT COLD WEATHER AGGRESSION
Thanks to its thick texture and high fat content, shea butter reinforces the skin's hydrolipidic film and protects it from drying out caused by climatic aggressions. It is an intensive moisturizer and skin repairer, providing immediate comfort for very dry skin and preventing skin dehydration.
In winter, apply a dab of shea butter morning and evening to your own skin and that of your children, not forgetting areas exposed to the open air (face, hands). Use sparingly on dry cheeks, especially in the mountains during winter sports.
2. FOR FEET, AN INTENSE SOFTENING AND REPAIRING TREATMENT
Shea butter helps combat flaking of the heel and arch of the foot. Apply daily after showering or bathing.
For an intensive treatment: apply a generous amount of shea butter to your feet in the evening before bedtime, massage in and leave them covered with a pair of socks all night long.
3. FIGHTS "CROCODILE" SKIN
Thanks to the exceptionally moisturizing properties of shea butter, skin becomes incredibly soft and smooth. Particularly effective against eczema or psoriasis, shea butter also attenuates the effects of tight, itchy skin caused by hard water.
Every day, massage a generous amount of shea butter into your skin after a shower or bath, paying particular attention to rough areas such as elbows, knees and heels.
Another tip: add a dab of shea butter to your (and your children's) bath, to soften the water and wrap the skin in a protective film.
4. AN EFFECTIVE REMEDY FOR CHAPPED LIPS
Dry or chapped lips are a frequent problem in winter. To protect and repair them, apply shea butter regularly to your lips during the day and at bedtime.
In this way, you'll keep your lips soft, free of dead skin and perfectly moisturized.
5. A GENTLE DAILY SKIN CARE PRODUCT TO PROTECT THE SKIN OF NEWBORNS
Moisturizing, softening, protecting, beautifying... shea butter has a wealth of benefits for the skin, especially that of babies, which is finer and therefore more fragile than adult skin.
During diaper changes: to prevent diaper rash, there's nothing like shea butter. It both soothes and protects against redness and irritation.
After the bath: After drying baby's skin thoroughly (especially in all the little folds), warm a dab of shea butter between your palms and rub it all over baby's body.
Your baby's skin will feel wonderfully soft. Indispensable for all mothers, shea butter is also ideal for massaging your baby gently.
6. SOOTHES SKIN SENSITIZED BY SHAVING AND WAXING
To soothe burning and irritated skin, apply shea butter generously to areas of the skin that have been subjected to razor burn or various hair removal techniques, for both men and women, to soothe, protect and repair your skin.
7. PREVENTS AND ATTENUATES THE APPEARANCE OF STRETCH MARKS
During pregnancy, to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, it's essential to moisturize the skin thoroughly and regularly. Shea butter will relieve itching and tightness, and preserve your skin's elasticity.
Apply a generous layer of shea butter to sensitive areas (hips, buttocks, stomach, breasts) and massage for a long time. Use every day, morning and evening, for maximum effectiveness. It is also recommended in the event of streaks appearing on the breasts, thighs or buttocks, often after weight loss or gain.
8. A FIRMING TREATMENT FOR THE BREASTS

11. IT PROLONGS THE EFFECTS OF TANNING AND A TANNED COMPLEXION
Thanks to its high vitamin E content, shea butter produces a protective hydrolipidic film for the epidermis, helping to preserve your tanned complexion.
Coat your body with shea butter every moment of the day to keep your skin luminous and tanned.
12. ATTENUATES THE EFFECTS OF AGING
Thanks to its exceptionally rich composition of unsaponifiable elements, shea butter moisturizes and softens the upper layers of the epidermis, and contains vitamins A, D, E, F and latex.

Its protective action against skin dryness helps combat wrinkles and skin aging, making it a remarkable anti-wrinkle agent.
13. AN ANTI-DANDRUFF REMEDY
Rich in vitamin A, shea butter helps rehydrate the scalp, so it acts against dry dandruff and scalp flaking.
Apply the butter directly to your scalp every day and massage it in.
For optimum effect, shea butter needs time to penetrate: it can be used as an after-shampoo mask for maintenance or preventive care. a minimum application time of 20 minutes is required.
14. AN EFFECTIVE REPAIR MASK FOR VERY DRY OR DAMAGED HAIR
Particularly recommended for curly or frizzy hair, which tends to dry out more quickly, shea butter softens the hair, allowing sebum to circulate more freely along the entire length of the hair shaft. Thus better nourished, hair becomes more supple, stronger and shinier.
Straight hair is not left out, either, as shea butter's action also sheathes the hair, protecting it from daily damage and combating split ends. Apply as a mask in the evening, before going to bed, and wrap your head in a towel to keep on overnight.
You can apply the butter all over your hair, or just to the ends.
The next morning, wash your hair with your usual shampoo. Shampoo twice, if necessary, to remove any remaining shea butter and avoid weighing your hair down.
