We’ve written a lot about how effective shea butter is against eczema and psoriasis, and now we’re getting into the why. In this article we focus on shea butter, but mango and cocoa butter also have these benefits.

1. Shea butter is high in vitamin A, which promotes healthy skin cell production

From ILoveSheaButter.com;

“Shea butter is so rich in vitamin A that you could call it a vitamin A (retinol) cream, no kidding! Retinol and retinoic acid are important for healthy skin cell production. Vitamin A also stimulates the cells responsible for developing tissue, known as fibroblasts, that keep skin supple and healthy from within the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin.”

2. Shea butter is anti-inflammatory, reducing itching and irritation

Shea butter is rich in compounds that reduce inflammation in the skin, including triterpene cinnamates and acetates. So it eases the itchy, tight, uncomfortable skin common in those suffering from eczema flare ups.

3. Shea butter is high in fatty acids, which prevent skin breakdown

A 1997 study found that the topical application of fatty acids improved hydration and elasticity in individuals with wounded skin. Since eczema often causes small cuts and wounds to appear in skin, this is perfect for healing and repair.

4. BONUS: Most of our body butters contain coconut oil, which is anti-bacterial and recommended as a treatment for eczema.

From NationalEczemaOrg.com;

“Studies show that applying coconut oil topically reduces the amount of staph bacteria on the skin, which reduces the chance of infection.”

Given this, it’s no wonder that many of our customers reference how effective our whipped shea butter is against eczema and psoriasis.

  1. I’m not new to eczema, all of the men in my immediate family have it… BUT, it never was really an issue for me, personally, until I had my son. I’ve used creams on him, here and there, but this is my first time hearing about shea, mango and cocoa butter as treatment.
