Correct me if I’m wrong, but there is no better feeling than when someone looks at you in surprise that you’re older than you actually look.


Yes, we are youth mongers. From hair-dye to Botox, the search for the fountain of youth is ongoing and tireless.


There’s a gift from Mother Nature that has the key to a natural and effective remedy for aging and damaged skin, and the best part of this natural source is that it is most effective in its purest and unrefined form. Shea Butter, one of nature’s most powerful gifts to all of us, holds the secret to healthy, chemical –free skin care.


Shea Butter is derived from the Shea tree which grows only in the semi-arid savannah regions of West and Central Africa. Due to its great skin rejuvenation properties (among others) the Shea tree, also called the Karite Nut tree, has become widely known as the ‘Tree of Life’.


For thousands of years, Shea butter has been used for beauty, health, and medicine and even cooking because of the unparalleled cocktail of nutrients present in the plant. Vitamins A, D, E and K, in addition to the Fatty Acids present in Shea Butter have been demonstrated to provide powerful skin-rejuvenation, moisturizing and healing characteristics. As a moisturizer, Shea butter is unmatched because the moisturizing components produced by Shea butter are the same produced by the Sebaceous glands in our skin. In addition to moisturizing, Shea Butter can be used as a remedy for a range of skin problems such as blemishes, burns, scars, stretch marks, eczema, allergies, sunburn and even frostbite. Its anti-aging properties act by increasing the micro-circulation which increases blood-flow to and from the skin and as an anti-free radical which protects against skin damages caused by environmental and sun exposure.


The manufacturing method of Shea Butter determines how effective it is as a skin care product. Processing and refining results in a loss of vitamins and other active ingredients that make this natural product so effective.
