Is Shea Butter good for Psoriasis?
Shea's anti-inflammatory properties help soothe skin and relieve itching and especially helpful for inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder whereby the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own skin cells. It is a debilitating physical condition where skin cells renew at an alarmingly fast rate of around 3 – 4 days instead of the normal 28 days. Psoriasis leads to epithelial damage of skin cells, causing red scaly patches on the skin that are dry and itchy.
While there is a wide range of allopathic treatments available for psoriasis relief, more and more people are now turning to alternative treatment options to avoid the side effects that come with conventional creams.
