Shea Butter vs Natural Oils

Most seed oils can be divided into two important fractions, the saponifiable fraction and the nonsaponifiable fraction. The saponifiable fraction contains most of the moisturizing properties, while the nonsaponifiable fraction contains most of the healing properties. What sets Shea Butter apart from other seed oils is its exceptionally large nonsaponifiable fraction. The nonsaponifiable fraction contains important nutrients, vitamins, and other valuable phytonutrients required for healing. Depending on the source and processing technique, the amount of the nonsaponifiable fraction in shea butter can range from 5% upwards to 17%.  Seed oil nonsaponifiable fractions can fall in the range of 1% or less. In other words, seed oils make a good to excellent moisturizer, where as they are good for healing. Because Shea Butter has such a large healing fraction, in addition to moisturizing fraction, regular use of this natural cream can treat many skin problems, including blemishes, wrinkles, itching, sunburns, small skin wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites, frostbite, and other skin conditions. It is because of the unique healing properties associated with shea butter, the shea tree has been given the name the karite tree, which means the TREE OF LIFE.
