Refined Shea Butter

$9

Description:

Shea Butter is a healing substance used in everything from soaps to pharmaceutical remedies. In its natural state, it is a powerful moisturiser. In addition, it can reduce inflammation on the skin and face, making it ideal to tend to scars and burns. It can also keep skin smooth and soft, for a perfect complexion. This kind of Shea Butter has been naturally refined using activated charcoal and retains most if not all of the vitamins and minerals that unrefined Shea Butter has.

How to use this item:

1. Use as a moisturiser 

Used either solid or melted, rub a generous amount of shea butter onto the face and rub thoroughly until fully absorbed. 

2. Use as a hair conditioner

Using the same methods as above, apply the shea butter to the roots of the hair to add volume and shine to hair.

3. Creating customisable creams, lotions
