In the savannah regions of West and Central Africa, the people call the Karite Tree, the Tree of Life. Here in this dry, arid region, the fruit of the nut of the Karite Tree, known as Shea Butter, has been used extensively to improve skin and hair. Today, it’s one of the most versatile natural skin care ingredients, used in an array of health and beauty products.
Rich in stearic and oleic fatty acids, Shea Butter helps to retain skin moisture and elasticity. In addition, it contains an abundance of Vitamins A and E, which have demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea Butter also is a source of cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. That explains why it’s used throughout Africa where the intensity of the sun can be particularly damaging to the skin.
Autumn Glow Restoration Wrap, which features Body Luxe Hydrating Wrap, is an intensely hydrating treatment that’s sure to provide a warm glow to skin still suffering from the dry and damaging effects of summer heat and sun. Sweet scents of milk, honey and fig will indulge the senses and inspire the feeling of comfort.
