Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use shea butter during pregnancy?

At this point, there’s nothing to say that shea butter is unsafe to use on the skin during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

Some people like to use shea butter to moisturise their skin during pregnancy as they believe it may help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor, pharmacist, or health visitor before using any type of new treatment.

If you’re breastfeeding, we’d advise that you should not use shea butter or other products on your breasts immediately before breastfeeding your child, unless advised that you are safe to do so by a medical professional.

Can I use shea butter for acne?

As shea butter may have anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties, some find that it’s a perfect way to soothe mild acne and spots.

However, everybody’s skin is different and natural remedies that you believe work with your skin may not work for someone else.

If you suffer with acne and need a way to manage it, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for treatment recommendations.

Does shea butter clog pores?

Some studies claim that shea butter is a non-comedogenic, acne-fighting ingredient, but most likely, shea butter is the opposite and will cause breakouts in those with oily skin.

 

If you’ve got oily skin and are looking for a moisturiser or acne treatment, shea butter probably won't be very effective and you’ll run the risk of making existing acne worse.

Is shea butter suitable for eczema sufferers?

As with acne treatments, some people find that the natural properties of shea butter make it a perfect traditional remedy for eczema. This is because it absorbs into your skin quickly and may work in a similar way to emollients. Emollients are popular eczema treatments which help by hydrating and protecting the skin from the inside out, so the appeal of an herbal remedy with emollient properties is only natural. If you do have eczema and need a way to keep your skin protected and hydrated to help to prevent flare ups, we’d recommend speaking to your doctor or pharmacist so they can help you to find a suitable treatment.

What are the benefits of shea butter?

Full of moisturising goodness, shea butter is an emollient, meaning it’s great for dry skin.

 

It’s especially beneficial to skin suffering from eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis because it soaks into the skin to create a moisture-sealing barrier, in addition to possessing soothing, anti-inflammatory properties.

 

Shea butter is enriched with antioxidants, which can help prevent fine lines and wrinkles caused by harmful free radicals.
