coco butter vs shea butter for the face

I am a 38 yr. old black male of medium skin complexion. When I shave using either my liners or Magic shaving cream, afterwards I need to put something on my face. Normally I use coco butter. It seems to be working just alright but I would like to know if Shea butter would be better or do they do the same thing?

Re: coco butter vs shea butter for the face

Cocoa butter is great for skin, but I've read that shea butter is even better. I tried to buy some not long ago, but pure shea butter is pretty hard to find. The only place I know that sells it is Bath and Body Works (I didn't look around too hard; so maybe some other health stores sell it as well)... and it is more expensive than cocoa butter.
