Shea Butter? What's It Good For?
Uses: Come on now, you know what to do with it. Little known fact though, you can also use it to moisturize your hair as well (most know this already though). Let me tell you something most of you might not know though, the scents matter. Depending upon the time of year gnats, mosquitos and etc. can be irksome! When we first started making our product, the first one was Red Line, why, because its has strong notes of mint! Mint is a natural repellant for gnats and such. This helped to keep them at bay while we popped out to play. Betcha didn't know that, huh smarty pants?!
Hows: I mean, what you thinkin', slather it on bread and eat it?! DON'T DO THAT! Maybe if you're the bread in the situation I guess, just ignore the eating part. Either way, just apply it to your skin, use your hands (or someone else's, we don't judge or know your life) and apply as much as you think you want. Just remember its shea butter not lotion, so a little goes a long way, and ours goes all day!
Whys: Obviously, cuz you don't wanna be ashy foo! I guess less obviously because your skin needs nourishment whether you can visibly see the signs or not. It matters, take care of your largest organ that protects you daily. It will thank you for the rest of your life, trust!
Benefits of Shea Butter: Shea Butter has been used as a natural moisturizer for skin and hair, around the world (specifically in the Motherland where it is produced), forever and a day. It is rich in vitamins A, E, and F while also providing low-grade SPF protection. Interestingly, during a study conducted in 2010 and published in The Journal of Oleo Science, it was concluded "that shea nuts and shea fat (shea butter) constitute a significant source of anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting compounds" (Akihisa, et al., 2010)*. Coconut Oil helps to moisturize and nourish skin while increasing calcium and magnesium absorption. Aloe Vera Gel has anti-inflammatory properties, but also helps to promote skin healing. Grapeseed Oil is high in vitamin E and anti-oxidants which are great for your skin. Sweet Almond Oil is light and also high in vitamin E and anti-oxidants. It is great for sensitive skin and healing. Jojoba Oil is closest to your body's naturally produced oils, which makes it excellent for helping to nourish the skin and keep it hydrated. It has anti-microbial properties, vitamins E and B as well as minerals such as chromium, copper and zinc. Proprietary Blend of Essential Oils are there to help you smell good while getting all the benefits the product offers as a whole.
