Shea butter keeps amazing me every time I do more research. Did you know that it provides some coverage from the sun? Yep! apparently it acts like a natural SPF. Now if you know me, you know I burn at the drop of a hat and I don't tan. So, I would not rely on just shea butter to protect my skin but since I have been using the jar lotion with Kokum butter and Shea butter on my skin under my SPF I feel like I am extra protected. Could be my imagination, but hey it can't hurt now can it?
