Benefits of Coconut Oil

Using coconut oil for your skin can turn dry flaky skin into soft glowing skin.  Coconut oil is becoming wildly popular in the mainstream market as an additive to skin creams, lotions, soaps and shampoos.  These products also contain drying properties such as water, alcohol, sulfates and other synthetic ingredients that can dry out the skin.

Coconut oil aids in the delay of wrinkles and can lighten existing stretch marks as well as aid in their prevention.  This is because of the natural existence of Vitamin E, which is a antioxidant and protects the skin cells from damage over time and strengthens skin tissues deeply.

Benefits of Shea Butter

Shea butter is derived from the nut of the African Shea tree and, it is said that it has been used as a beauty aid since the beginning of time.  There have been accounts that Cleopatra, as well as those in her court, kept shea butter in their chambers to protect their skin from the harsh rays of the sun and their hair from the dry winds of the desert.

The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids is what makes shea butter a natural moisturizer.

Shea butter also contains anti-inflammatory properties as well as anti-aging properties.
