Shea Butter is extracted from the kernels of the sheu tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) and is composed of triglycerides with oleic, stearic, linoleic, and palmitic fatty acids. It is frequently used in the cosmetic industry due to its high percentage of the unsaponifiable fraction (e.g., triterpenes, tocopherol, phenols, and sterols), which possesses potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also has significant levels of vitamins A and E, which means it promotes strong antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are important anti-aging agents as they protect your skin cells from free radicals that can lead to premature aging and dull-looking skin.
Vitamin E is an important fat-soluble antioxidant and has been in use for more than 50 years in dermatology. It is an important ingredient in many cosmetic products. It protects the skin from various deleterious effects due to solar radiation by acting as a free-radical scavenger. Experimental studies suggest that vitamin E has ant tumorigenic and photo-protective properties.
