It works well for both men and female, all skin types and across all ages.

For men who wish to improve on their personal skincare, Shea butter is such a great choice. This is because;

1. It has high moisturizing value

Shea butter is considered to be an excellent moisturizer as it works on all skin types and also for both skin and hair. Due to its richness in nutrients, Shea butter is good for healthy skin and hair. It also serves to maintain a well-conditioned beard.

2. It has a long glowing effect

Unlike women who give their skin constant attention, men prefer to do it only once a day before stepping out. For an amazing look, Shea butter is the best option as it gives a longer moisturizing and glowing effect.

3. It makes one look young

Shea butter is rich in stearic acid which contains the collagen protein which maintains the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. This binds the skin tissues together making it smooth and keeping you away from wrinkles.
