Benefits of Shea Butter and Essential Oils in Your Face Cream
Hello fellow bath junkies! It’s been quite awhile since we’ve blogged about our amazing products and programs so we’re back at it and will be posting 2 blogs each week so please come back to see what we’re up to and share with your fiends!
I want to talk today about our primrose face cream, how I use it and why I put essential oils into it. First off our face cream is made with 40% Shea Butter which is hard to find on the market and is one of the reasons I absolutely LOVE this cream. Let look at why Shea Butter is so great!
What is Shea Butter?
Shea Butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection (it is SPF ~6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair.
