Shea butter contains large amounts of unsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6). It also does not lack saturated fats (stearic and palmitic acid), to which it owes its solid texture at room temperature. It is also rich in phytosterols, catechins, lupoleol and vitamins A, D, E and F which have excellent antioxidant and anti-aging action. Its most exotic ingredients include terpene alcohols that act as anti-inflammatory, as well as cinnamic acid that slightly absorbs ultraviolet radiation. Its medical applications have also been found in anti-inflammatory treatment for arthritis, topical treatment for eczema, herpes and other skin conditions, and even in lowering cholesterol. The natives use it for hot massages in rheumatic and muscular pains, sprains and dislocations.
