A body scrub with shea butter.
Shea Butter Body Scrub is a type of exfoliating liquid soap that includes the moisturizing ingredient Shea Butter. Shea butter comes from shea trees and is a natural substance that works well as an emollient and moisturizer. Contains vitamins C and A and leaves no oily residue on the skin when used as a moisturizer. For these reasons, shea butter is often found in skin care products.
The fruit of the shea trees is the source of shea butter.
Shea butter body scrub differs from traditional body wash because body scrubs contain exfoliating ingredients such as sugar, jojoba beads, salt, or oatmeal, just to name a few. These exfoliating ingredients loosen dead skin cells on the surface of the body, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. In addition to the exfoliating ingredient, body butter often contains a moisturizer, which in this case is shea butter.
Sugar is a common ingredient in shea butter scrubs.
It is not recommended to use shea butter body scrub every day, but rather once or twice a week. Body scrubs can be used more often on dry, problem areas such as elbows or knees. It should never be used on the face, as the skin is most delicate there and the exfoliating ingredients can easily scratch and damage the skin. There are other types of scrubs for use on the delicate skin of the face.
Liquid soap with shea butter is able to moisturize most areas of the body.
The shea butter body scrub can be applied at home or as part of a spa massage. The advantage of using a body scrub as part of the massage is that the massage therapist can rub hard-to-reach areas such as the back. When applying the shea butter body scrub, first moisten the area to be cleansed, then massage the scrub into the skin in a circular motion for about a minute. After that, rinse off the scrub. Because it’s a slower process, it’s best not to use a body scrub in the shower.
After using a body scrub, even a moisturizer that contains shea butter, it’s best to apply a moisturizer to your skin. This will make the skin even smoother and help prevent persistent dryness. As with using any body care product, it may be best to test the body scrub on a small area first, to make sure there is no allergic reaction. If dryness or peeling occurs, switching to a different brand of body scrub will usually resolve the issue.
