Dove Shea butter benefits

The cleansing benefits of shea butter

Moisturising, calming, smoothing: shea butter is a wonder ingredient that melts into skin, leaving it soft and smooth. You've probably seen it in body moisturisers and lotions, but did you know it's a good idea to look for it in your cleansing products, too? Find out about its exceptional powers with our 6 favorite shea butter benefits…

    Enhance moisture.

    Dove shea butter cleansers won't dry out your skin. While some cleansers strip the skin of its natural moisture, our Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter Beauty Cream Bar has a rich blend of shea butter and ¼ moisturising cream, which melts into your skin, leaving it velvety soft and smooth

    Gentle every day use.

    Dove Shea butter cleansers are kind to your skin. Because they’re so gentle, you can use them every day

    It works straightaway.

    Shea butter gets to work fast. Since it contains fatty acids found naturally in our skin, it’s absorbed easily and quickly. You can even skip your lotion every now and then when time is of the essence

    Curb dryness.

    Shea butter is highly moisturising, so it's perfect for those areas of the body that are prone to dryness and need a bit of extra help, like elbows, knees and heels. Use a massaging action to help encourage the skin to absorb the moisturiser, leaving it feeling soft and smooth long after you’ve stepped out of the shower

    Avoid tight skin.

    Our shea butter cleansers won’t make your skin feel tight. Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla Body Wash is free of harsh cleansers (prime suspects for making your skin feel tight), so it doesn’t strip skin of its natural moisture

    Protect your skin.

    Dove Shea butter cleansers help skin to protect itself. They are gentle on skin and replenish skin’s natural nutrients, helping to strengthen skin’s natural barrier that holds in moisture and protects it from irritation
