The Benefits of Shea Butter in Lipstick
Posted on 23 August 2018
With a long list of ingredients, it can often be difficult to know which makeup products are safe for you and which are not. However, when creating our Mineral Makeup, I ensured to only include natural and organic ingredients in our products, without harmful toxins and synthetic fibres to make our makeup collection a safe and healthier alternative to conventional cosmetics.
Every product in our Mineral Makeup range is blended with specific natural and organic ingredients that help achieve healthy skin by nourishing your complexion and protecting it from harsh external factors. Certified Organic Shea butter's one of these, and it is a key ingredient in our Pure Colour Organic Lipstick.
Shea butter comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree, it is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E and F, which not only keeps the skin in optimal health but also protects it from free-radical damage. Shea butter is on incredible emollient, which means that it has the ability to form a barrier on the lips and help retain moisture in the skin - leaving your lips feeling supple and smooth. Given that it is easily absorbed and able to provide extra nutrients to the skin, it is no wonder that Shea Butter is one of the best ingredients when it comes to daily lip care and keeping your lips in optimal health.
Shea butter also contains a mild SPF factor that can protect your skin from harmful UV rays. This not only helps to reduce fine lines and anti-ageing concerns, but also helps to heal dry and chapped lips.
Every shade in our Lipstick range includes shea butter, so you can be assured of having moisturised, plump lips no matter which shade you choose. As well as Shea Butter, our Lipsticks are infused with Organic Jojoba Seed Oil and Organic Citrus for long-lasting, hydrated colour.
Vegan and cruelty-free, our diverse range of lipsticks are free from animal-derived ingredients such as beeswax and lanolin. This combined with organic shea butter helps to ensure that our lipsticks are kind to your skin as well as the environment, whilst being on-trend and suitable for every occasion!
