Pure Virgin Shea Butter
The Natural Choice for body care.
With out a doubt, this is the finest moisturizer you will ever use on your body. Pure, natural shea butter melts into your skin and leaves it silky soft and smooth all day long. Not just a few minutes like other less emollient butters. If you have not experienced shea butter - we highly suggest it! You will probably never go back.
It has an array of amazing healing properties stemming from its physical make up of vit. A, vit E, and cinnamic acid. Our shea butter is manually refined to give it a super creamy, light consistency with minimal to no scent. Our shea butter is collected from the Karite tree in the savannah grasslands of West Africa. It is a very soft butter and is considered to be of superior quality.
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. Color: Pure white to off white. Shea butter is perfect for:
- Moisturizing severely dry skin.
- Shea butter leaves skin supple and soft.
- Excellent for massage use.
- Stretch mark prevention.
- Heal and soothe irritated skin.
- Psoriasis, Eczema
Shea butter is excellent for use on babies and children. Shea butter naturally softens their skin and protects it against elements. We recommend Unscented for babies.
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.
The 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.
Shea butter can be naturally or chemically extracted using the chemical hexane. Hexane alters the affect and purity of Shea butter. Our Shea butter has been naturally extracted, cleaned and deodorized by our African Shea Butter source withOUT the use of hexane.

THE BEST FOR WINTER-CHAPPED LIPS AND HANDS 4
Posted by CA on
Love this stuff for chapped lips as it doesn't wear off fast and is a good moisturizing base under lipstick. It is thick but warms up in your hands when applied - great for dry heels and protects against chapping of hands in winter. I got the Bitter Orange and Orchid scent which DOES smell like Orange Pekoe tea - pleasing, mild scent. ( I wish you could get it in a coconut-vanilla or pineapple scent) The large jar is well worth the price, especially when on sale. **Platinum comment*** Yes, we have a great Warm Vanilla Sugar that smells heavenly! We will try to get in a pineapple scent.
ALLERGY SUFFERERS, LIGHTLY SCENTED IS A BIT OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT. 5
Posted by VN on
I have used unscented shea butter in the past and, it doesn't smell great. Not bad, just not great. I purchased the cucumber melon, and while wonderfuly hydrating, the stuffy nose and watery eyes, is just not worth it. **[[[ Platinum Comment ]]]** Generally speaking the Pure Shea butter has a very light nutty scent which goes away after application. If you want the product scented with a fragrance super lightly, please just let us know in the info box on our PVSB page. We will do whatever we can to make the product work for you.
BEST MOISTURIZER EVER 5
Posted by D-Joanne on
This is hands down the best moisturizer for dry itchy skin. I put it on and I can feel it all day long, no need to keep reapplying. I gave it 4 stars but that is not because the product doesn't work. The product is hard almost like a cold coconut oil consistency so I need to use a mini spatula I received with a different face cream to scrape it out of the jar and then warm it up with my hands before applying. My suggestion would be to include a tool like this with the product because you really can't get it out any other way. I ordered the warm sugar scent and it was very light. I will request it be scented heavier the next time because I will be ordering this product again when I run out. ***Platinum comment*** You will find that the natural consistency of Shea is usually quite firm in the winter months and a bit softer in the summer months. It liquefies as soon as you rub your hands together. Yes, lol, I believe if you have long nails the scooping may not work as well.
