Gold Shea Butter
Raw. One ingredient. Ethically sourced. Fragrance Free. Vegan.
Nigerian Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
With a little more moisturising power than the Ivory shea butter, this is a favourite among people who suffer from eczema. The natural fragrance is more earthy Tham the Ivory shea butter and has notes of clean soil.
Uses and Benefits: Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a "cure-all" balm, with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly.
How To Use: All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands. Please note: Psoriasis suffers are advised to patch test before use as Shea butter encourages the regeneration of skin cells. People with psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells resulting in the build-up which is what is associated with psoriasis. Shea butter contains natural latex, although reactions to Shea butter are quite rare please be aware of possible allergic reaction.
Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii ( Shea Butter).
