Frequently asked questions

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.

We recommend not to use Shea butter if you have a nut allergy as Shea Butter is made from Shea nuts.

Raw Shea butter is super Rich in Vitamins A, E and F Shea butter is an all natural treatment for eczema that can help to reduce flare ups, minimise scarring and give relief from itchy, skin.

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!

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.

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.

Amazing!

I loved this product, I have been using it on my dry and cracked feet for just over a week now and there is such an improvement! They feel so much softer, it has corrected the colour of my feet and healed my sore cracks. It feels incredible when you rub it into your skin with a really nice warming effect and smells define. Would highly recommend!
