Caution: Psoriasis sufferers are advised to patch test before use, as shea butter encourages the regeneration of skin cells. People with psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells resulting in the build-up that is associated with psoriasis.
Allergens: Shea butter contains natural latex, although reactions to Shea butter are quite rare please be aware of possible allergic reaction.
