Ingredient highlight - Shea Butter
Do you know the benefits of Shea butter? 🤔
No? then let me give you an idea.
Shea butter comes from the fruit of the Shea (Karite )tree in Africa. It is a skin superfood as it is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E and F and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in shea butter make it incredibly nourishing and moisturising for the skin.
It has a rich buttery consistency at room temperature and is excellent at penetrating the skin. But it does more than just moisturise. Its has anti inflammatory and anti ageing components and can help improve some skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
I source my Shea butter from a Women's cooperative in Ghana 🇬🇭and it is certified fair for Life. This helps empower the women👩 in Ghana, protect the environment,🌴 helps wildlife conservation🐘, ensures it is traceable, has quality control and is organic.
My soaps🧼 contain nearly 20% shea butter and this is what helps make them so moisturising.
