Why do I need to moisturize my skin?

The skin needs moisture to repair and renew itself. While the skin produces it own oil through the sebaceous glands, sometimes extra moisture is needed. As we get older our skin does not produce enough oil and becomes very dry, add in menopause and all of a sudden the wrinkles, lines and visible signs are aging are prevalent. The Skin needs to be hydrated either internally or topically to be soft, supple and smooth.

Moisturizers have been found to help restore the skin barrier providing a protective layer on surface of the skin to trap water and prevent the penetration of irritants and allergens. An emollient cream is superior in trapping the moisture within the skin. There are five randomized controlled trials showing benefit to emollient use in atopic eczema.

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) in West Africa. High levels of natural anti-oxidants (A and E) and essential fatty acids (from stearic acid and oleic acid) found within the nut's buttery contents have proven extremely effective for moisturizing and repairing damaged skin. Vitamin A maintains the firmness and elasticity of the skin while Vitamin E is mainly moisturizing. In addition, Shea butter contains cinnamic acid that provides sun protection and heals skin inflammation.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
