Sunflower Oil, can retain moisture in the skin, and has a high content of natural Vitamin E oil. 
 Shea Butter, enough can not be said about Shea Butter. It has healing qualities, contains vitamins A and E. There is evidence to suggest that cinnamic acid esters in  Shea fat help to prevent skin damage from he ultraviolet radiation.

(the top layer of the skin), where it has the ability to hold onto moisture. Because of this cocoa butter also makes it easier for damaged skin to be repaired. The skin has to be hydrated for the body to grow new skin and Cocoa butter has the ability to do this.
