Shea Butter is commonly used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and in Europe it is also used in the confectionery and chocolate industry as a substitute for cacao butter. I must say that shea butter is a must have for every household! It can be used for various skin problems ranging anywhere from dry skin to eczema. Shea butter works wonders when used to treat other things such as itchy skin, sunburns, skin rashes, scars, stretch marks and more!
