Organic Shea Butter
Vittelaria paradoxa -(formerly Butyrospermum parkii)
Shea butter is made from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (karite) tree. Travelers to Africa recorded the use of Shea Butter in the 1300's, but was used by the Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra of Egypt in their eras long before. Rich in Vitamins A, F and K, it provides the skin with essential fatty acids for collagen production. Shea Butter contains linolenic, palmitic, stearic, cinnamic and oleic acids that protect and moisturise the skin, and have anti-inflammatory effects. I purchase organic unrefined, Fair Trade Organic Shea Nut Butter hand-made by women and families from Kperisi village in Northern Ghana using age-hold traditional methods. No chemicals, no harsh industrial processes, just the same traditional methods as they have used for millennia.
Organic Mango Butter
Mango butter is made from the kernel of the fruit. It has very high quantities of fatty acids (for intensive moisturisation), antioxidants, Vitamins A, C and E. It is purported to have benefits for wound healing, skin cell regeneration and skin softening.

Symbol of purity and beauty, it is also one of the most important natural raw materials of traditional Polynesian pharmacopoeia. It is found in many preparations soothing, softening and repairing. The fresh flowers used to make Monoi de Tahiti come exclusively from the islands of Tahiti and Moorea.

With the ability to soak deeply into the skin, Coconut Oil is also naturally antibacterial, and antimicrobial. This oil has gained popularity in skincare usage within recent years, as it contains capric, caprylic, and lauric acids, saturated fats for nourishing, smoothing and softening, and Vitamin E, an effective skin repair, soothing and smoothing agent.
