Eczema is defined as an inflammatory condition of the skin characterized by redness, itching, and lesions which can become scaly, crusted or hardened. It affects both adults and children, even toddlers and babies.
There are different types of eczema. A person who has one type can also develop other types later on due to genetics or external factors.
Shea Butter has been known to treat eczema and effectively moisturize and restore the health of the skin. It comes from the Shea Tree, also known as Vitellaria Paradoxa, which takes over 20 to 30 years to grow. The Shea Tree is an indigenous African tree which has been grown all over Africa for many years.
Aside from treating eczema, Shea Butter can also help prevent skin infections. Skin infections occur when bacteria enters through the cracks of the skin and causes inflammation. By keeping the skin moisturized, cracks caused by dry skin can be avoided. Shea Butter can not only be used for treatment of skin conditions, but it is also a preventive way to keep your skin healthy.
For raw, organic, unrefined Shea butter with no preservatives, try Flocare Raw Shea Butter. It is handmade from handpicked Shea nuts from Northern Ghana, carefully processed to obtain the best quality Grade A Shea butter.
You could also try Laam Shea’s Moisturizing Shea Body Butter. It is made from Shea butter enriched with essential oils such as baobab, moringa and neem to keep the skin moisturized and nourished all day long.
