Shea butter - the magical moisturiser from a nut!

Our bar soaps are made with premium plant based oils and butters. One of the star ingredients that makes our bar soaps so divine on the skin is organic unrefined shea butter! Shea butter comes from the nut of the African shea tree. It is a highly moisturising ingredient that is also edible!

Shea butter is known for its high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins, which make it an excellent moisturiser. When used in soap, it helps to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. This is especially beneficial for individuals with dry or sensitive skin, as shea butter helps to restore and maintain the skin's natural moisture barrier.

Shea butter contains anti-inflammatory compounds, such as cinnamic acid and lupeol, which can help reduce redness, inflammation, and irritation. This makes it ideal for individuals with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. By incorporating shea butter into our soap, it can help calm and soothe irritated skin, providing relief from itching and discomfort.

The vitamins A and E found in shea butter have antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause premature ageing. These antioxidants also stimulate collagen production, promoting skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. By using soap enriched with shea butter, it can help rejuvenate and firm the skin, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.
