What makes our Shea Body Butters so good?

Our Shea Body Butters are 100% natural, luxurious, all-over body moisturisers, that will leave skin feeling gorgeously soft and nourished, with a radiant glow. We use organic, unrefined shea butter in these body butters, which is suitable for all skin types, but an especially great choice for dry skin as it's so effective at deeply hydrating the skin.

We absolutely love shea butter – in fact, it’s possibly our favourite ingredient to formulate with. It makes for an outstanding body butter. Our Shea Body Butters come in three beautiful scents. Awaken (grapefruit and lemon), Rise Up (orange and frankincense) and Serendipity (lavender) – all scented with pure, organic essential oils. With all three of our Shea Body Butters, the scent lingers long after applying so you'll smell gorgeous for hours!

What is the difference between the Cocoa Body Butters and the Shea Body Butters?

The main difference is the ingredients and the scent. In the Shea Body Butters, we use a high percentage of shea butter and no cocoa butter. In the Cocoa Body Butters, we use a high percentage of cocoa butter and because cocoa is a very hard butter, we add a small amount of shea butter to soften it.

Unrefined organic shea butter is a powerhouse ingredient with many skincare benefits. It is packed with vitamins A, E, F, and K that help to strengthen and protect the skin from environmental damage. Shea butter can improve numerous skin conditions such as dry skin, eczema, blemishes and wrinkles, stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, and possibly acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter also provides some protection against UV rays and oxidative stress. The fat it contains helps the butter penetrate the skin pores without clogging them, making it a brilliant ingredient for all skin types.

What is the difference between unrefined and refined shea butter?

The primary difference between refined and unrefined shea butter is that unrefined shea butter retains more skin care properties and vitamins, but it can have a range of smells and colours, and each batch will be different. The natural carotenoids present give the butter a pale-yellow colour – but it can also look cream to slightly grey.

Refined shea butter undergoes a process to make it colourless and remove the natural fragrance, and it has a higher chance of graininess due to this process. The refining process also removes most of the natural healing properties found in its vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. In contrast, unrefined shea butter retains all of its natural nutrients. 

Are your Shea Body Butters vegan?

Yes, they are 100% vegan. See ingredient list below. They're also 100% natural, 98% organic, and cruelty free too. The shea butter we use is ethically sourced from a women’s cooperative in Ghana and invests in its local community.

Are the Shea Body Butters suitable for use in pregnancy?

Lavender, sweet orange, and frankincense essential oils are generally considered safe in pregnancy according to the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA). Grapefruit and lemon essential oils are also considered safe for use during pregnancy. However, it is important to note that some essential oils can be harmful during pregnancy so if you have any doubts, please speak with a qualified aromatherapist or other professional like your GP.

Occasionally skin can become more sensitive in pregnancy and react differently, so we always recommend you conduct a patch test 24 hours before using and stop at any sign of skin irritation.

What ingredients are in the Shea Body Butters?

We use high quality, ethically sourced ingredients in all of our skincare products. The base ingredients for our Shea Body Butters are: unrefined organic shea butter, organic almond oil, organic golden jojoba oil, natural vitamin E oil. We then add pure, organic essential oils for each variant.
