Feed your skin

1 2 3

Your skin is the largest organ of your body: how well are you caring for it? Just like your digestive system, your skin has its own metabolism. There are certain ingredients it just can’t process. Using skincare products loaded with chemicals, leaving your skin clogged, dull, and vitamin-starved, instead of nourishing your skin with all-natural products is simply, to say the least, no good. If you are looking for a new way to feed your skin, here are a few helpful information tips you should know.

Homemade Butter

As you probably heard from your grandmother or mother Shea butter has been used for centuries as a wrinkle reducer and perfect moisturize. But do you know that you can make your own favorite body butter at home?

“ We believe that making your own luxurious body butter or your healing salve is like cooking a healthy, wholesome meal: one where you have high quality ingredients, all you need is a good recipe and some love.” – said Isabella Duvall from Better Shea Butter

Let’s start with a short overview, just in case you didn’t hear about the Nut Butter. Shea Butter is only found in the tropics of Africa. It comes from the nut of the Karite Shea tree. Raw, unrefined Shea butter contains many essential fatty acids, as well as vitamin E & A. It has a creamy color and natural, unique smell.  Shea Butter can provide relief from everything from dry skin to many minor dermatological diseases. Shea butter provides all the essential vitamins need to make skin look and feel smoother, softer and most importantly, healthier.

Raw Unrefined Shea butter is the perfect base for a limitless variety of homemade skin care products. You can apply it on its own to help moisturize dry skin or reduce problems such as eczema, wrinkles, and stretch marks. You can also add other natural ingredients, including coconut oil, jojoba oil and essential oils, to create skin care products perfectly tailored to your needs and tastes. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

In the mood for cocoa

Cocoa Butter is another essential natural product that is a very common ingredient in DIY skin care products. Better Shea Butter organic, unrefined cocoa butter is pressed from the roasted seeds of Cacao Trees grown in North America and provides a nutrient-rich base for homemade skincare products.

When you melt the unrefined cocoa butter and mix it with Shea butter and other natural oils, you’ll be treated to its incredible natural cocoa scent. But that’s only just the beginning. High in anti-oxidants and fatty acids, cocoa butter helps to fight off free radicals and keep skin moisturized and smooth. It is one of the most effective ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks as well as help sooth skin issues such as eczema and dermatitis.

No all-natural skincare routine is complete without rosehip seed oil. It is perfect nourishing facial serum and a powerful addition to homemade skin care recipes.

Better Shea Butter certified organic Rosehip Seed Oil is full of the vitamins and fatty acids your skin needs to stay healthy, moisturized and luxurious. These same nutrients provide anti-aging properties that help keep skin fresh and glowing. There is evidence that regular rosehip seed oil use can help fade acne scars and dark spots, as well as help to even the skin tone and sooth skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

Rosehip seed oil is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t block your pores. This makes it a great choice if you suffer from acne. It’s also a “dry oil,” so it won’t leave any greasy residue on your skin. Apply it directly to your face and neck: it will sink right in, leaving your skin moisturized and happy.
