Nigerian Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Our Nigerian Gold Shea comes from Abi’s dad’s town and is waxy in texture. With a little more moisturising power than the Ivory, this is a favourite among our customers who suffer with eczema. The natural fragrance is more earthy and has notes of clean soil.
Uses and Benefits
Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a “cure all” balm, with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly.
We use top quality, 100% ethically sourced Ghanaian and Nigerian Shea butter.
How To Use
All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet and hands.
Psoriasis suffers are advised to patch test before use as Shea butter encourage 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.
Shea butter contains natural latex, although reactions to Shea butter are quite rare please be aware of possible allergic reaction.
