With out a doubt, this is the finest moisturizer you will ever have used on your body. Shea butter melts into your skin and leaves it silky soft and smooth all day long. Not just a few minutes like other moisturizers. If you have not experienced shea butter - we highly suggest it! You will probably never go back.
Our shea butter is collected from the Karite tree in the savannah grasslands of West Arfica. It has an array of amazing healing properties stemming from its physical make up of vit. A, vit E, and cinnamic acid. It is a very soft butter and is considered to be of superior quality. It is pure white, to cream yellow, to off white. Our shea butter is manually refined to give it a super creamy, light consistency with minimal to no scent.
Platinum Skin Care is exceptionally pleased to be able to offer you this preferable variety of butter! It is unprocessed and does retain a slight aroma. It smells like an oil or fat (hence its high moisturization properties). We suggest a light fragrance is added. *We have several to choose from.
Our butter has been lab tested for its high vitamin A and cinnimic acid content as well as its low moisture content, all very important for a top grade shea butter. Our butter is of very consistent quality, creamy color, with a typical shea butter aroma.
It is used on all types of skin to:
Moisturize severely dry skin Shea butter leaves skin supple and soft. It is quickly replacing cocoa butter for the use of stretch mark prevention. Shea butter is used by massage therapists and spas due to its grease-less after feel and effective softening results. In fact, the usage of Shea butter to replace other oils is growing as more and more therapists discover Shea butter. Shea butter is excellent for use on babies and children. Shea butter naturally softens their skin and protects it against elements.
We recommend the unscented version for use on babies and children.
Heal and soothe irritated, itchy skin. Shea butter is anti-inflammatory. It increases the healing of wounds and improves scars. It is used to heal eczema, burns, rashes, severely dry skin and to lessen the irritation of psoriasis. Soothes skin after shaving or waxing.
Skin Protection Damage from sun produces free radicals which in turn increases the rate at which skin ages and can even become cancerous. To avoid damage skin needs year round protection- especially with the decreased ozone layer. Shea butter contains natural UV sun protection. Daily usage of Shea butter on the face and body drastically reduces sun exposure- slowing down the rate of aging due to external factors, as well as acts as a natural mantle to protect against elements such as cigarette smoke, smog and chemical pollutants in the air.
Purchasing Shea Butter Shea butter can be naturally or chemically extracted using the chemical hexane. Hexane alters the affect and purity of Shea butter. Look for Shea butter that has been naturally extracted. As well, Shea butter is often times bleached and deodorized with the use of chemicals. Our Shea butter that has been naturally cleaned and deodorized by our African Shea Butter source.
