Let’s get into why we use shea butter - scientifically known as Butyrospermum park. Shea butter contains high concentrations of Vitamin A & E which keep the skin supple, nourished, moisturized and radiant ✨.
Shea butter is actually a fat that is extracted from shea tree nuts. These fatty acids are known to naturally soften, condition, tone and soothe skin.
Shea also has anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and healing properties which help promote collagen production.
Since shea butter is a low-risk topical ingredient, allergic reactions to shea butter are rare.
ITADI was carefully formulated for people with sensitive skin.
We hope you enjoy!
