The benefits of shea butter are virtually endless. It can be used to aid serious skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and atopic dermatitis as well as less severe issues like scars, acne and stretch marks. Shea butter is as close to a “cure-all” as they come, and here are the five shea butter products you need in your life.
Dermatologist Strength Shea Butter from EuGenia Shea
Naa-Sakle Akuete, the owner of EuGenia Shea, launched the company after recognizing a need in the market for nourishing, skin soothing shea butter. The 12 oz tub of Dermatologist Strength Shea Butter is strong enough to treat a range of more serious skin conditions as well as gentle enough to treat everyday dryness.
Price: $65, 12 oz tub
2. Shea Butter 4-Pack from EuGenia Shea
You’ll love the EuGenia Shea line so much that you’re going to want to take it everywhere with you, but the 12 oz tub doesn’t easily fit into your clutch. Luckily, they also sell a gift pack that includes four small, 2 oz tubs, so you can easily keep one in your purse, desk, car and gym bag.
Price: $40, 2 oz X 4 tubs
3. Shea Butter Lip Balm from Pixi
You can also wear shea butter on your lips thanks to Pixi Beauty. Their shea butter lip balm can be applied as often as needed and helps to prevent and heal cracked, peeling lips.
Available in Transparent, Sweet Peach, Honey Nectar, Natural Rose, Pixi Pink and Ripe Rasberry.

5. Argan Oil & Raw Shea Mineral Soak from Shea Moisture
