This is also the origin of my passion for formulating natural cosmetics without water, actually the beginning of my beauty brand SHEA YEAH. So the sensitive has its advantages after all.

How is shea butter useful for the care of sensitive skin?

If one compares the origin of shea butter with sensitive skin, they have one thing in common: the shea fruit protectively wraps its kernel with the flesh and skin. Just as the shea kernel is protected, sensitive skin also needs wrapping protection. This is necessary to support the functions of the skin’s natural protective acid mantle.
Mild skin care is very important for sensitive skin. Shea butter is known to be very skin-friendly and mild – a true all-rounder. In addition to shea butter, SHEA YEAH contains soothing oils such as almond oil and plants such as mallows or marigolds. All these natural cosmetic blends are ideal for sensitive skin.
