Shea butter  乳木果油 

Shea butter is slightly cooling energetically. It soothes sensitized or inflamed skin.

Shea is great for strengthening the skin's barrier, i.e. the protective sheath. This is an important feature when we want to moisturize the skin. Aqueous moisture evaporates easily into the drier room air and the skin feels tight. Shea butter helps lock moisture into the skin and prevents it from evaporating. This is why Essence Balm, together with other moisture-binding plants, is great for superficially dry skin.

Another important property of shea butter is that it is not comedogenic, i.e. clogging the skin. On the contrary, Shea absorbs well into the skin and does not leave a sticky feeling. In addition, its composition resembles the skin's own sebum and reduces excessive greasiness.
