Native to West African countries, the shea tree grows predominantly wild in the African Savannah. The fruit of the shea tree has been an important material to the local people who have used it for hundreds of years for food, medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It also serves as a vital source of income for a number of African communities. Shea butter contains vitamins and other active elements such as cinnamic acid, which can help protect the skin from UV rays as well having healing properties. It also contains 5-10% phytosterols, which are said to help to stimulate cellular regeneration and growth. It is highly moisturising and is claimed to have mild anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. We normally use gently refined, organic Shea butter from a fairly traded project in Ghana.
Coconut oil comes from crushed copra, the dried meat of the kernels of the coconut. It has a long tradition amongst Asian & Pacific populations of being a 'cure for all illnesses' and the coconut palm, termed 'The Tree Of Life' is a highly valued source of nutrition & medicine.Coconut oil lathers readily and makes a fine cleanser.
As the structure of Jojoba Oil closely resembles human skin sebum, it has a natural affinity to our skin. An odourless, non-greasy oil, it penetrates the skin quickly nourishing all skin types – especially dry or mature skin. Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax and as such it creates a breathable layer which protects the skin from the elements.
