Organic Raw Shea Butter Review + DIY Recipe + Giveaway
Beauty by Shea organic shea butter is sourced directly from Ghana. It is raw and unrefined so it's the purest form of shea butter available, with no added ingredients.
This ivory shea butter comes in a heat-sealed bag in a one-pound brick. Mine came in great condition and was ready to use. I love that it is natural and organic. Many lotions these days are full of toxic ingredients that nobody needs to absorb into their body. Pure shea butter moisturizes so well and a little goes a long way. It naturally contains vitamins A, E, F and K which help nourish the skin. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave me feeling too greasy. I love applying it to my legs, feet, arms, and hands to moisturize the dry skin. It's great for after shower and before bed.
I also find it very useful for DIY lotions and soaps, and even hair conditioner. I made a homemade moisturizer for my face and neck using organic shea butter, coconut oil, and tea tree oil. It was super easy and works really well. Because of the coconut oil it does feel a little "greasy" when its first applied, but I have been using it on my neck and chest for a few weeks and it leaves my skin SO soft.
