Shea Butter is a natural ingredient with multiple virtues. Indeed, it has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It repairs, soothes damaged skin and leaves the skin beautiful and soft. Shea Butter calms skin irritations and redness caused by itching. It disinfects wounds and helps the skin to cicatrize with the help of resinous esters and vitamin E that are found in its composition.  This process is completed by one of the main ingredients: Lavender essential oil which helps to heal red skin and skin irritations.
