OLVEA® Silky Shea

OLVEA® Silky Shea is a new innovative ester based on a combination of OLVEA’s Shea butter and its scientific expertise.
Shea butter is a natural fat obtained from the fruit of the Shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii), which belongs to the Sapotaceae family. The fruit is collected from the bush exclusively by women.

OLVEA® Silky Shea is a light-weight alternative to conventional Shea butter which imparts lightness and a velvety after-feel to skin and hair care formulations. This multi-purpose ingredient is rapidly absorbed into the skin, providing an instant moisturizing effect and a radiant glow. It leaves a soft and silky finish; skin and hair are smoothed and conditioned. This Shea-based emollient improves the overall texture and appearance of skin and hair.

With its high content in unsaponifiable matter (triperpenic alcohols, phytosterol, kariten, etc.), OLVEA® Creamy Shea has considerable cosmetic properties.

The unsaponifiable of shea protects the skin against cellular oxidation. They restore the epidermic barrier so avoiding insensible loss in water. They fight against enzymes degrading proteins of the allowing skin one maintains some elasticity of this one. They are also known for their anti-inflammatory properties and suit sensitive skins and weakened.

OLVEA® Silky Shea is a sensual new way to moisturize with great spreading properties. It enhances the slip, improves the glide of the final product and reduces the tackiness of heavy formulations.
