Extreme dryness of the skin can cause symptoms such as itching, flaking, cracking, tough and rough skin on the feet, and peeling. Instead of using typical lotions, consider an all-natural body butter that is made with Shea. Whipped body butter and Shea butters are known to be effective in treating dry skin and relieving a wide variety of skin conditions due to their high moisturizing and hydrating capabilities.
Whipped body butter and Shea butters are recommended for people with extremely dry skin and other conditions like itching skin, sunburn, dryness due to cold weather, skin rashes, stretch marks, dermatitis, insect bites, and eczema. Shea butter contains vitamin A and it is known to be helpful for improving most skin conditions, including wrinkles and blemishes.
You need to make sure that you are using whipped body butter with a high concentration of natural and organic Shea butter. That way, you can be sure of the high potency of the moisturizing properties of Shea butter. Our skin's sebaceous glands produce the same moisturizers that are present in Shea butter, so it is natural for the skin to absorb and process it.
Whipped body butter should have at least 30% organic Shea butter. A high-quality brand of whipped body butters sources its ingredients from a hippo conservation project. It uses authentic pure aloe extracts to create a creamy and soft moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated for a long time. Look for whipped body butter that promotes the healing of scars and skin conditions, too.
Some manufacturers add a few extra ingredients to make the whipped Shea body butter more effective in addressing various skin conditions. Coconut lemongrass, gingered pumpkin, frankincense, Namibian marula, pomegranates and pink guavas, and rooibos and berries are some examples. Make sure that there are minimal added ingredients, so they do not counteract the Shea butter's natural moisturizers and healing properties.
