With all the skin benefits you have to gain from shea butter, it shouldn't be surprising that shea butter for pregnancy can be equally advantageous. In fact, the soothing and anti-inflammatory properties in shea butter can have far-reaching effects on your skin, even going as far as to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. At 24K Shea, we carry the highest quality shea butter on the market, which allows our customers to reap all the benefits raw shea butter has to offer. This is especially beneficial for use during pregnancy because all the beneficial compounds present in shea butter are still in tact and ready to soothe, smooth and nourish your skin.

How to Use Shea Butter for Pregnancy

Shea butter has been shown to have a wide number of benefits for skin care, and helping to eliminate and prevent stretch marks is one of those benefits. While shea butter may not entirely rid your skin of stretch marks on its own, it can still be helpful in preventing the formation of more in the future. For example, by holding moisture in your skin and encouraging the production of collagen, our unrefined shea butter can help make your skin more elastic. This will help prevent stretch marks from forming by helping your skin to comfortably stretch and bounce back to its former shape and size. Additionally, the antioxidants found in raw shea butter can help make your skin healthier and smoother. They do this by protecting and maintaining the health of your skin cells, and fighting away free radicals that damage the structure of your skin.

Our Raw Shea Butter

While you can find shea butter in virtually every store, most shea butter is refined and not pure. Our shea butter, however, is raw and unrefined, allowing you to reap all the natural benefits it has to offer without compromise. What really sets our raw shea butter apart from the competition, however, is where and how we source it. We have partnered with a fair trade women's cooperative in Ghana, Africa where the Shea trees grow wild. Here, these women harvest and process the shea nuts using traditional methods. Not only does this partnership provide us with the highest quality shea butter around, it also provides these women with a sustainable way to support their families and pay for things like education for their children. Before, these women would have had to resort to hard, agricultural labor for menial pay and would not have been able to send their children to school.
