“Your skin needs moisture to stay resilient, healthy, glowing, and supple. Amongst the hundreds of moisturizers available on the market today, there is one that is considered the ‘crème de la crème’ of all. Shea Butter is a gift from Africa, and can turn almost any dry skin patch into a smooth and supple surface.Shea Butter has been used for generations in African cultures as a moisturizer, health aid, healing balm. In its purest forms, it is a solid fat with a high skin absorption rate. This makes Shea Butter a highly valued product for almost all skin types.”
 
“It does not have a scent or smell, [some say it smells like white chocolate]  but today’s products offer a variety of aromatic scents and fragrances added to it. This high-fat butter is chock full of naturally occurring Vitamin A, E, and F. Many women can apply megadoses of Vitamin E to reduce stretch marks, wrinkles, and skin cracks. Shea butter will prevent bumps from shaving, razor irritation, rashes, and even eczema. Use it sparingly during the summer months as it is very high in moisture; however, winter calls for a different regiment in most states!
 
Shea Butter is a fantastic moisturizer for the outdoor enthusiast who suffers from chapped and cracked skin. Even sunburn in the summer can be soothed and reduced considerably with regular shea butter application.

"Some of the poorest women in Africa have something that American women want.
It's called shea butter, comes from West Africa and is said to have magic moisturising properties to create excellent anti-wrinkle creams, lip balm, stretch-mark ointments and soothing nappy rash lotions.
 
The market is expected to boom as demand for natural and organic beauty products gathers pace
, and the growth potential is significant enough for Washington DC to host its very own shea butter conference this week. Representatives from Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Ghana and Senegal have all travelled there to find out how to satisfy the demands of America's cash-rich beauty firms."
 
DID YOU KNOW Shea takes just a little longer to absorb into the skin because it has virtually no water in it!  But the skin accepts it unreservedly.  It absorbs all of it and the healing deep moisturising begins.
 
 

 
 * There is a rare possibility for people who have a latex allerrgy to react to shea usually on the face only (weird), as it has in small part a latex like property.  Latex is a natual product from the rubber plant.  But people can have an allergy to almost anything.  It is also worth noting that shea should be pure. and unrefined because the reaction could actually be coming from the chemical processing of some shea or other petro-chemical added to shea.  DO  SEE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
