How to Use Whipped Shea Butter

Learn about the best skin care uses for whipped shea butter from organic beauty product expert Spirit Demerson in this Howcast natural beauty video.


Whipped shea butter has even more uses than just regular shea butter because whipped shea butter, being that it's whipped, allows you to disperse the product more evenly and use it more liberally than you might trying to use the semi-solid form right out of the jar the way that it naturally occurs. You can whip it with basically a stand mixer, an electric mixer, even with a fork, and once it's whipped you basically have all the benefits of shea butter: rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, all the natural fatty acids, the deeper level of hydration, the long lasting hydration to the skin, but in the whipped form it's much easier to apply all over the body. Whipping shea butter also allows you to add natural fragrances like essential oils or add natural ingredients like tea tree oil that you might want to add if you're using it as a skin preparation for the face. So, just by whipping it you're allowing a little bit more air to get into it and allowing any added ingredients to also disperse more evenly. So whipped shea butter just like shea butter is an amazing skin moisturizer for the face, for the body, it's non-comedogenic, it's lightweight but long lasting hydration, and by being whipped, you can use it a lot more easily.
