Nourish winter skin with the very best African Shea Butters. From organic and unrefined, to a hint of vanilla or mango, these are our favourite body butters.
Shea butters have been used by African’s for thousands of years and is known as a ‘cure all’ natural skincare remedy. It naturally contains vitamins A and E, meaning it is effective at improving skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis as well as having pro ageing qualities. However it’s special talent lies in the high content of fatty acids. Stearic acid acts as an emulsifier but also encourages skin to absorb moisture from the air. It leaves skin baby soft and very healthy. Use it all over, or on particularly dry, sensitive spots, as well as stretch marks. You can also use it on your face and lips as well as your babies bottom! Of course, we prefer organic and Fairtrade sourced shea butter, as this ensures that the people who harvest and process the shea butter are fairly paid.
