This body butter has a woody, deep and alluring scent.  Popular with males and females, this thick and creamy texture of the shea butter blended with the extra virgin olive oil makes this body butter soft, rich and wonderfully softening for the skin.  Simply scoop a small amount out of the jar and allowing your natural body heat to warm the butter, gently apply to your skin and massage in.

Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut from the shea (Karite) tree, mainly grown in West Africa and is the African treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, scarring, stretch marks, sunburn, itching, insect bites & ski n blemishes.  Shea butter is the key ingredient in this body butter. With its creamy texture it is a delight to apply to the skin. Scientific investigations have found that shea nut butter does not pose any known or likely allergy risk to consumers, including those with peanut or tree nut allergies.

We use organic and fair trade shea butter which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F, helping to maintain optimum skin health. Improving elasticity and abundant in fatty acids that help with collagen production, to help maintain youthful skin and with its mild SPF (thought to range from 4-6 SPF, naturally),  anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce skin irritation shea butter is a true skin healer.  Shea butter not only works on the surface of the skin, creating a protective barrier but it also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin to heal within.

Olive oil contains at least four different types of antioxidant: vitamins A and E, polyphenols, phytosterols and avenasterol to help maintain a healthy body. The antioxidants in olive oil work by neutralising damaging free radicals that can lead to skin aging and skin cancer.   Chlorophyll is also present in olive oil – a photosynthetic pigment found in plants and algae – the life-giving part of the plant. It is an anti-aging substance that promotes the healing of skin conditions and wounds.

Cedarwood essential oil is naturally antiseptic, antimicrobial and antifungal and an astringent.  This combination renders is ideal for skin conditions such as eczema and spot prone skin.   Abundant in anti-inflammatory compounds, cedarwood is excellent for easing aches, pains and general stiffness.   If you’re having trouble sleeping, then cedarwood can come to the rescue with its ability to relax and sedate the body.

Lavender essential oil is yet another of nature’s wonders with its healing benefits being seemingly endless. Lavender is antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and is therefore excellent for acne, scarring, soothing and calming itchy skin, or indeed skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.  It is excellent on sunburnt skin and equally so for oily skin. It even acts as an insect repellent.
 
 
Juniper Berry essential oil is a powerfully cleansing and detoxifying oil.  Helping with fluid retention and preventing formation of cellulite, juniper berry really is an incredible oil.    It is also a natural anti-oxidant, antifungal and anti-inflammatory and can work wonders on the skin to help combat an array of conditions such as acne and eczema.
