Shea Butter and Argan Oil for face treatment

Posted by Maria Agharbaoui on


The face is the part of the body most exposed to external aggressions related to cold, sun, wind or pollution. The skin of the face, therefore, needs to be protected, whenever necessary, to avoid accelerated drying and aging.

Shea butter provides this protection through the presence of latex, a substance that plays a role in filtering the sun's rays. The daily application of shea butter on the face allows, before any outdoor activity, to moisturize the epidermis and protect it summarily against the harmful effects of the sun, wind, spray or cold.

At the end of a day when the skin of the face was strongly irritated by the aforementioned elements, shea butter softens, softens and soothes it. Shea butter thus allows the skin of the face to find an optimal hydrolipidic balance, to calm the irritations and to regain its original elasticity.

Some areas of the face, such as the bases of the nose, the lips (the corners of the lips in particular), the ears or the back of the neck deserve to be coated with shea butter with great attention.

Shea butter and Argan oil are indisputably today the 2 most popular plant raw materials in the cosmetics sector to nourish, repair and sublimate the skin as hair. Argan oil such as shea butter also has anti-aging properties that are very popular in our society where the physical appearance is often a high priority. In these conditions, it becomes very tempting to combine them to take advantage of their complementarity.

Alternate the two natural assets

In the first place, you can alternatively use pure Argan oil and shea butter to obtain a major effect on a specific issue for which each of these two active ingredients is effective: dry skin, irritated skin, dermatitis, eczema, etc.

In this case, apply Argan oil before shea butter because it is more comedogenic than the first mentioned substance.

Use a cosmetic integrating the 2 substances in its formulation

Another method is to use a beauty treatment whose formulation includes both shea butter and Argan oil. In this case, it must be ensured that the proportion of each of these two assets in the product under consideration is sufficient to enable the latter to act effectively. This is the case of the products formulated within the Argold range and in particular the balm: Argan Butter with Shea, with at least 50% Argan Organic oil enriched with shea butter and other natural components.

Rich in vitamin E, this balm has anti-wrinkles properties for a skin full of youth. It also moisturizes and protects your skin from weather damage.
