MATSIMELA SPA BODY BUTTER
A rich Shea based body butter with pure baobab oil which will do the trick for dry skin.
Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), penetrates deep into skin to help restore elasticity. It is an anti-aging ingredient offering a solution for fighting wrinkles because of the rich of vitamins A and E it contains. As an emollient and moisturizer, shea butter helps repair the skin and is an effective remedy for dark spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and sunburn. The nuts and seeds within the shea fruit have a fat content of around 50%, making them a rich source of triglycerides, and it has a high level of stability without any added preservatives. Shea butter also contains essential fatty acids, triterpenes, and saponins. UV-absorbing triterpenes help protect and heal skin from sun damage, and can help speed healing of sunburns. Vitamin E, in particular, helps reduce inflammation and has antioxidant effects. Shea butter is composed of a whopping 11% unsaponifiable fats. These fats help bind moisture to the skin and protect skin’s moisture barrier.
Baobab Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the Baobab fruit, this oil contains a high content of vitamins A, D, E & F and is extremely stable against rancidity. Baobab oil also contains O-3 (Omega 3), O-6 (Omega 6) and O-9 (Omega 9) fatty acids which are essential for the maintenance of healthy skin. Like vitamins and minerals, the body is unable to manufacture fatty acids and thus they must be obtained through diet and by topical application to the skin. Fatty acids can be depleted from the skin from over exposure to UV rays, poor health, poor immune systems and natural ageing. But fatty acids are very important for strengthening and regulating the cell function. Fatty acids also help water proof the skin and in doing so, stop toxic substances from entering our cells. The topical application of fatty acids can also help alleviate various skin disorders such as chronic dry skin, thin skin, chronic bruising and sun spots.
