What Skin Type Is The L’Occitane Shea Butter Range For?
Shea butter has been used for generations by local and global cultures to protect the skin but it’s more versatile than you’d think. If you’re suffering from acne scarring, shea butter is an effective remedy to calm the skin, whilst its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties help get rid of toxins that lead to the development of spots.
The rich and nourishing textures across the shea butter range makes it a great solution for eczema, with the cream forming a protective barrier to increase water retention and prevent water loss, and it doesn’t stop there! Shea butter can also promote healthy hair and reduce stretch marks whilst being extremely gentle on skin; so, the whole family can benefit from the L’Occitane Shea Butter collection.
