The Beauty of Shea Butter

 

Filled with nutrients, moisturizers, and antioxidants, shea butter is an all-round beauty treatment in a jar! Whether you’re dealing with wrinkles, acne, or eczema, your skin will drink in shea butter, leaving it smoother, softer, and brighter. It helps fade stretch marks, and soothes cracked heels. Use it on your hair to bring out healthy, conditioned shine and soothe your dry, itchy scalp, and rub it on those dry, chapped lips for a beautiful smile. It can even ease the swelling and itching of insect bites, and help clear a runny nose from those pesky seasonal allergies,

You can even eat it! The versatile shea butter has long been used in its native Africa as a healthy cooking fat. Substitute shea butter one for one for butter, lard, or margarine—great for a healthy vegan diet—as an ingredient, or as a spread. You can use it to saute meats and vegetables, or as the basis for a delicious sauce for rice or pasta.

Where to get this wonderful butter? EuGenia Shea is a family run company, founded in 2014, that employs sustainably paid farmers in Ghana to grow shea trees and produce their smooth, high-quality Naasakle shea butter. EuGenia Shea uses only the finest raw, unrefined shea butter, as indicated by their About Us page.

Not only does EuGenia Shea provide farmers in Ghana with a sustainable income opportunity, but we believe deeply in our female farmers, and our obligation to help improve their lives. To that end EuGenia Shea returns fifteen percent of all profits to our farmers in the form of an education fund. We believe that every young woman deserves a decent education.

Why waste money on expensive cosmetic creams and conditioners, produced by impersonal companies, full of unpronounceable ingredients? When you use Eugenia Shea butter, not only do you reap the benefits of a natural, raw product that takes the place of all those others. Shea butter not only makes you feel good and look beautiful, but also makes your conscience feel good!
