Organic Shea Butter
This organic Shea Butter To The Rescue is your lifesaver when you suffer from dry / chapped skin or dry hair. Our Shea Butter is a 100% natural vegetable oil that is organic certified. Shea Butter is rich in vitamins A and E and gentle enough to moisturize the body and face. This butter is very suitable for people with sensitive skin and for baby and children's skin. It is a highly moisturizing and protective butter with mild anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Shea Butter is hard at room temperature and becomes soft when you rub the butter between your hands. Shea Butter is perfect for spreading on damaged or dry spots on your skin or to hydrate the tips of your hair. Because Shea Butter is fairly hard it can be difficult to apply to skin especially in a cold environment.

What is Shea Butter?
Raw Shea Butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. Shea trees grow in the African Savannah. The tree is known as the Tree of Life. Shea butter contains a high content of vitamins A and E and is great to moisturize the skin and promote skin elasticity. In Africa, Shea Butter has been used for centuries for the daily care of skin and hair, but also for the treatment of burns, blemishes, eczema, wrinkles, stretch marks and other minor skin ailments. Our organic Shea Butter comes from Ghana. This refined butter is removed from the typical smell of shea butter, which is often perceived as less pleasant. Want to know more?

Fair Chain Shea Butter
Our shea butter is sourced from Fair Chain nut orchards in Tamale, Ghana. Fair chain is better than Fair Trade because it ensures an equal balance of ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’ in the production chain from farmer to consumer. This balance encompasses the ecological footprint and providing farmers and producers with a more equal share of profit (than Fair Trade).

I bought the ginger scrub, what a lovely scent it has! I also bought the lavender hand sanitizer, which is a life saver nowadays. I keep it in my handbag and it's come in very useful when visiting super markets. No dry hands with this sanitizer! But the best product I bought was the shea butter. I use it against frizzy hair, it relieves irritated skin, it's great for intensive treatment of dry areas on your body. I love how many purposes this product has, it is absolutely brilliant!

Ik wrijf het tussen mijn handen en masseer een beetje in mijn krullen. Voelt niet vet aan en haalt de pluis uit mijn haar. Ongelofelijk makkelijk en puur. Ook heel fijn dat mijn handen daarna gelijk ingevet zijn :)
