How to use organic shea butter?
You can apply shea butter directly to your skin, body and hair. Raw, unrefined shea butter is easy to spread. You can use your fingers to scoop a teaspoon or so of shea butter from your jar, and then rub it onto your skin until it’s completely absorbed.
Use Shea on its own as an all over body moisturiser. You can also use it to soothe itching associated with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Shea is excellent for your hair when applied to the ends of the hair for extra conditioning. It gives hair shine, and conditions and helps define certain hair styles, and a little goes a long way. Can help keep your hair frizz free as it seals in moisture and protects from environmental elements.
Use Shea Butter to invigorate your homemade formulations. It can be mixed with carrier oils, other butter, essential oils and other natural ingredients for beauty hacks and make your own beauty treatments.

How to store shea butter?
Seal and store in a dry place (temp between 15-25°C). The texture can vary depending on the temperature but it does not affect the quality of the product.
Pores are very small openings on the surface of the skin through which sweat or sebum flows. The thicker an oil, the less penetrating it is, the more comedogenic it is and the more it blocks the pores. Shea butter is a non-comedogenic oil because its index is 0 and therefore does not block the pores.
The heat opens the pores. After a hot shower, shea butter will penetrate more quickly.
Excess sebum can lead to oily skin. Oily skin leads to acne. Acne-prone skin can lead to inflammation. Shea butter is rich in anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore effective in reducing acne problems. For information, sebum is an oily secretion produced by the sebaceous glands and whose role is to protect the skin. The face is the part where the greatest amount of sebum is generated. The quantity of sebum increases according to different factors: hormones (periods), heat (spring/summer), and bad habits (unhealthy diet).
Because shea butter softens and smoothes the skin, it may reduce the appearance of cellulite. The increase in collagen production caused by shea butter may play a role in cellulite treatment as well since it makes the skin stronger and less likely to sag.
