My soap bars, infused with avocado oil, offer a gentle cleanse that leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated - perfect for the busy mums who deserve a moment of indulgence.

Our soap bars, enriched with olive oil, provide a pampering experience that uplifts the senses and leaves skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.
  3. Shea Butter: Straight from the heart of Africa, shea butter is nature's gift to dry, thirsty skin. Renowned for its moisturizing properties, it locks in hydration and soothes irritation, making it an essential ingredient in our soap bars. Busy mums can rejoice knowing that each lather envelops them in a cocoon of comfort, leaving skin supple and glowing.

The Beautiful Benefits of Shea Butter

Posted on May 30, 2019 by Melanie Brown

I love Shea Butter and use a lot of it in my handmade products. It is renowned for its numerous beneficial properties on the skin. This was reinforced by a friend who used one of my butter butters which contains Shea.

My friend has suffered with blemishes for some time and became quite paranoid about them. This started after she gave birth to her children. With all the hormones raging through her body, she noticed that the appearance of her skin changed and always seemed to be quite irritated. Although I’m sure that no one was, she felt that everyone was staring at her. She became quite anxious and paid a visit to her GP in the hope that he could give her some miracle cure which would get rid of the problem. However, it didn’t work, and she had the additional worry of whether the chemicals in the prescription were causing additional problems to her already sensitive skin.

Out of desperation, she approached me as she knew that I made a whipped body butter which contained Shea Butter. From researching the internet, she was aware of the properties of Shea, such as being soothing on irritated skin, a great anti-ager and good for acne or blemished skin. Most of all, she was attracted to the fact that the ingredients were natural and there was no danger of any chemicals causing any harm to her skin.

I gave her a jar of the body butter and told her that she only needed to use a small amount as a little went a long way.

After 3 weeks she got back to me asking for a second jar. I was quite surprised by this request, because if she has been using the butter as directed, she should not have reached the bottom of the jar.

My friend told me that she was absolutely happy with the results because after using the body butter, she had noticed an improved appearance of her skin as the blemishes appeared to fade. She had put it down to the Shea Butter and its renowned properties. When she told me this, I noticed for the first time that she had a great big beaming smile.  She was filled with confidence.

So, What's So Fab About Shea Butter?

Posted on December 02, 2016 by Melanie Brown

I love Shea Butter. I use it in most of my handmade products. It’s creamy to the touch and produces great results.
It is a beautiful rich butter which is a superb moisturizer and beautifully hydrates your skin.
Shea Butter is known for its benefits for skincare. It is great for dry skin, skin irritations, scarring and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
This gorgeous butter is an excellent anti-ager as it is packed with anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E and A. If you want fantastic youthful looking skin, then take a look at this product.
Shea Butter nourishes and revitalizes your skin giving it a healthy and vibrant glow.
Especially around winter, Shea Butter is excellent for enhancing the appearance of your skin which can become ashy and dry due to the cold conditions.
I have created a body butter, Citrus Delight Whipped Body Butter, which has Shea Butter as its main ingredient. This is combined with jojoba oil, coconut oil and vitamin E to produce a rich body butter which leaves your skin feeling soft and luxurious. A little goes a long way.
I love using this straight after a hot bath. As you rub the butter into your skin, it absorbs into the layers of your skin leaving it feeling silky and smooth. This is a beautiful treat after a long tiring day.

Shea Butter - What’s so great about it?

Posted on October 06, 2015 by Melanie Brown

I love Shea Butter. Personally, I think that it’s the skin’s best friend. I just love the way that it leaves a beautiful sheen on the body when it is used after a hot bath or shower.

Have you noticed that some skin products can be quite drying and harsh on the skin and leave the skin looking dull and ashy? Shea Butter combats this problem and helps to revitalize and illuminate your skin.

It is full of antioxidants which means that it great for repairing and healing.

It gorgeously nourishes, moisturizes and hydrates the skin.

Shea Butter is soothing and this is particular evident in the way it aids with burns and rashes.

It contains two important vitamins, firstly Vitamin E which helps nutrients to be transported to the skin which helps with skin regeneration. Secondly Vitamin A revitalizes the skin and accelerates healing.

The great thing about shea butter is that it has so many advantages to enhance the appearance of your skin. Here are 7 of them:-

  1. It is fantastic for reducing the appearance of stretchmarks particularly in pregnancy.
  2. Shea Butter diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Improves skin tone.
  4. Helps to get rid of blemishes. I have a friend who uses my Citrus Delight Body Butter which is rich in Shea Butter and she commented on how it helped to improve the appearance of the skin on her face. I was really impressed when I saw how her complexion had improved.  Her skin was smoother and the blemishes had gone.
  5. Shea Butter is great for those with dry skin conditions. It is a rich moisturiser.
  6. Shea Butter is a rich emollient and soothes the skin and helps sufferers of eczema and psoriasis.
  7. It has antibacterial qualities.

Well, these are the reasons why I use Shea Butter. I use it because I care about how the skin looks and that it is properly hydrated. Your skin is a precious treasure, so please look after it.
