A giant among skin moisturizers

We love shea butter so much as a moisturizer, we add it to 15 varieties of our soap.

“Forget those pricy saccharine body butters at the mall. Yours makes my skin so smooth and silky.”

Love, love, love Herbaria! The shea butter and lavender jojoba oil keep the chlorine from drying my skin out in the summer!

Here is satiny smooth, odorless, organic shea butter. It melts on your skin and then coats it with long lasting protection. Use shea butter wherever your skin needs hydrating. People find this natural emollient especially nourishing and moisturizing for hands, elbows, knees and feet.

Since it absorbs slowly, you might apply shea butter at night before going to bed. If you like, cover your treated hands with gloves, your feet with socks. When you wake you’ll have the softest skin ever!

Compare this pure single-ingredient body butter with popular moisturizers. Their first ingredient is usually water, which is often followed by a host of questionable chemicals including parabens, preservatives, synthetic fragrances and thickeners.

Shea butter is made from the edible nuts of the West African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa [previously Butyrospermum parkii]). For centuries, this emollient has been cherished as an anti-aging cream and moisturizing skin protector.

As thick and creamy as it is, you’ll be surprised to learn it won’t clog pores. We’ve read it reduces the number of pimples and the inflammation of acne.
Our shea butter has a shelf life of one to two years. It has no preservatives so we use a dark green jar to block out oxidizing light. If you don’t apply the shea butter regularly, keep it in the refrigerator. Let it warm at room temperature to soften again.

One more word about our shea butter. Our facilities are not certified organic so we cannot use the title “Organic Shea Butter.” However, in our list of ingredients, we can employ the term organic because that’s exactly what this shea butter is.
