Product description

One Ingredient. Hundreds of Uses.

Fragrance Free. Vegan. Natural

Our unrefined, unprocessed 100%  raw Ghanaian Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret.  It is known as ‘Woman’s Gold’ in West Africa for two reasons: firstly because of the number of women who have gained financial independence through the cooperatives where it is made, and secondly because women (and men!) use it for absolutely everything and have done for centuries. Just some of its uses include:

- Dry dehydrated skin
- Scarring
- Nappy balm
- Stretch marks
- Eczema & problem areas of the skin
- Base for making your own natural cosmetics.

Its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E, naturally derived from the fatty insides of the shea buts that fall to the ground in abundance and are harvested.

A multi-purpose moisturiser and cure all balm for all skin types.  LIHA Ivory Shea butter has a crumbly  texture and a natural vanilla- honey like fragrance. Its deep moisturising properties help heal and repair cracked, dry, irritated skin and protect the skin barrier from the elements. 

How to use

Suggested use: All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands.

Face: Raw Shea butter is rich so use it on dry patches on your face or has a 10-15mins face mask or a DIY overnight mask depending on your skin type.  Use to treat chapped lips and an aftersun treatment. 

Body: All over body butter - great for really dry areas especially hands, feet, elbow.  Has been known to help skin conditions like eczema. Also, use it as a base to make your own creations.

Baby: Made from one natural vegan ingredient so it’s great for babies and kids. 100% safe. Use for nappy rash, moisturiser, belly balm.

What is the difference between Ivory and Gold Shea Butter?

At LIHA Beauty we offer two types of vegan raw Shea butter: Ivory and Gold. Both our Shea butters are unrefined. The difference in colour is attributed to the region in which the Shea butter was extracted and can also be based on the season and production methods. The same amazing skin health properties remain, regardless of the colour, however, depending on your personal usage of the butters you may prefer one over the other. Both are rich in Vitamins A and E and work wonders for multipurpose moisture.

Ivory Shea butter is from Ghana and can be crumbly in texture. It has a nutty vanilla scent, it's perfect butter for keeping small areas such as the lips, hands and feet moisturised on the go. 

Gold Shea butter is from Nigeria and has a more smoky, earthy smell remnant from the roasting process of the Shea fruit and waxy in texture. It can be seamlessly smoothed into larger areas of the body as well as being the quintessential weapon against dry, flaky and itchy scalps.

They are both really hydrating and nourishing but we would say the Gold Shea butter is slightly more moisturising and have had amazing reviews for treating eczema and other skin conditions. Check out what some of our customers told us about using our raw Shea butter to treat their eczema.

I Have a Nut allergy- can I use Shea butter?
We recommend not to use Shea butter if you have a nut allergy as Shea Butter is made from Shea nuts.
I have Psoriasis -can I use Shea Butter?
Psoriasis sufferers 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. Some people have found it helpful for the condition.
I have a latex allergy – can I use Shea butter?
Shea butter contains natural latex, although reactions to Shea butter are very rare as it is just one natural ingredient, please be aware of possible allergic reactions if you are allergic to latex.
Are your products suitable for during pregnancy and/or nursing?
As most women prefer to use unscented products during this time, our Shea butter is a customer favourite to keep stretch marks at bay during pregnancy and as a nipple balm during nursing. It even works wonders as a nappy balm!
Can I use raw Shea butter on my face?

Shea butter is great for hydrating most of your skin and is low on the comedogenic scale. However, raw  Shea butter is very thick and rich, and can make some people break out but everyone is different and we have customers who use it on their face with no issues. We, therefore, advice you to patch test for yourself to see if it suits your skin. Personally, I use it on dry patches of my face especially in winter or as a 10 minute face mask.

So,if you need a hit of hydration on your face, leave the Shea butter on for about 10mins and then use a warm flannel or micellar water to gently wipe away.

The BEST shea butter

This is my favourite shea butter. I return to it each snd every time. So soft snd smooth and perfect for my skin. It’s the only moisturiser I use!

Silky and divine

This product is a bit of a new venture for me after my usual lotions, butters, and oils. I wanted to simplify and have one product for hands, body, and face. I use it as a luxurious hand and face balm before bed, lip balm for dry lips, and I also use it for the kids if they have any skin that needs soothing.

With this cold weather it takes a bit of digging out of the jar, but it melts like butter as soon as it’s between your palms. The smell is so delicate, sweet, and tranquil.

Versatile essential

This has become a mainstay for me. I use it as a cuticle balm, lip treatment, a little around my eyelids (I suffer from painful dry skin sometimes) at night, on rough patches of skin, mixed with my usual body lotion to give it extra weight and last but not least as part of a home-made hair mask (along with the beautiful Idan oil). I have thick hair prone to coarseness and this mask is transformative for me. I cannot recommend Liha Beauty enough for their beautiful products, and enjoy the subscription service to keep me well stocked.

Good product but not value for money

Hi I think your product is great but the quantity you provide is too small in my view for the price (especially vs some of your competitors).
