I’ve always had problematic/sensitive skin since I was a little girl. I always have to be very cautious about what skin care products to buy/use and I veer towards those with organic and natural ingredients, as they work the best for me.
One of the ingredients that have worked well for me over the years is Shea Butter. I have never used it in its pure and raw form in the past and I was ecstatic when Beauty by Shea gave me the chance to review their “Organic and Unfiltered Shea Butter”!
SHEA BUTTER – UP, CLOSE AND PERSONAL:
Shea Butter comes from the karite shea tree that is native to Africa. Unrefined and raw shea butter contains vitamins, minerals (e.g. Vitamins A, E, F and K) as well as essential fatty acids and is known for its moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Raw organic unrefined shea butter maintains its healing and therapeutic qualities and will keep the skin moist and supple. It is perfect for topical use on skin and hair and the perfect essential ingredient for homemade lotions, soaps, conditioners and more!
PRODUCT VERDICT AND UPDATE:
We have hard water out here in Burkburnett, Texas and I have started using Beauty by Shea’s raw shea butter as a protective salve. I take a small amount of the raw shea butter (trust me, a little goes a long way!), use it all over my body and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before I shower or take a bath. Now, my skin has been feeling rejuvenated, less sensitive…and I could not be happier! It really is a fact that the healing properties of shea butter is at its best when it is in its raw organic unrefined form!
Also, this shea butter has significantly lessened the excessive dryness and watery nodules on my hands and fingers. Since I didn’t want any of you to get grossed out, I was mindful enough not to post a “before photo” of my hand. All the dry patches and blisters on my index and middle fingers started healing after almost a week of using the product. Except for the tiny patch of dry skin on one of my fingers, everything is a-okay and back to normal!
I’ve even tried applying it on my feet before going to sleep and covering it with socks for an overnight hydrating treatment. So far…I am a very happy and satisfied camper!
SHEA BUTTER – A VERSATILE PRODUCT WITH MANY BENEFITS:
There are so many other ways that you can use Beauty by Shea’s Raw Organic Unfiltered Shea Butter. I have personally been using it for my lips, cuticles and I have even been mixing it with my favorite organic lotion for extra moisturizing benefits.
In addition, you can use it as a cream on your elbows and knees. Shea butter hydrates, soothes and balances the skin. It works well as a dry scalp treatment, for chapped lips and to help soften cracked dry skin. You can add it to your conditioner, to provide more moisture and nourishment to your hair. It can also be applied on your legs after shaving, as it has softening and soothing properties. It is safe to use on babies and pregnant women’s bellies for stretch marks, as it works really well on sensitive skin. It can be used as a facial moisturizer, as it has healing properties that can improve your skin’s appearance and texture. Studies show that Pure Organic Unrefined Shea Butter has cellular renewal properties, so you can also use it as an anti aging balm.
Pure Organic Unrefined Raw Shea Butter from Beauty By Shea has more therapeutic uses, but I thought I’d share the most practical ones with all of you. I prefer and trust this brand over others, because I have proven that it truly works on my problematic skin! It is double filtered, first in Ghana, and then at the company’s US Laboratory where it is manufactured into 1 pound bricks. It is then packaged into heat sealed bags and sent straight to Amazon thereby preserving the natural richness and purity of the shea butter.
