For example, in the hot African climate, this oil is used for massage newborn babies to protect their delicate skin in severe climatic conditions. Nowhere reputation of shea butter as an emollient and protective is not valued as highly as in the field of skin care. Many local soap manufacturers use shea butter as a raw material. Skin and hair in a hot climate of Africa are in need of protection, and shea butter is perfect for this purpose. Shea, like many lipids, can be considered a good emollient. But it is not only in its excellent emollient properties. Unsaponifiable fats that are part of shea butter, showing regenerating properties, affecting the synthesis of collagen.

In the same thesis has been described in another clinical study, which examined moisturizing properties of shea butter. The study involved 49 volunteers who made twice daily application of shea butter. It was tested as a pure oil and a 15%.
