Okay everyone- I know that I’m new here, but I’ve spent the last few hours reading most of the posts and I haven’t seen much, if anything, about shea butter.
This is an excellent mousturizer for lips, face, hand, feet, and even hair. It is made from the karite tree, and African shrub, and has no animal ingredients. The plain butter is a white substance that is thick and looks like a big tub of chapstick until you scoop itout and spread it around in your hands- it then becomes very creamy and spreadable.
I have had considerable success with this as a moisturizer and it is very cost effective, too. About 7-8 dollars for a pound (a large tub) online or about ten dollars at a health foods store for 8oz.
If anyone has any questions, please ask- thisis the best beauty product I ever bought because it has so many uses, is cost effective, lasts forever, and doesn’t break me out. It is also natural and free of any additives, fragrance, or preservatives- so chances are slim to none that it will cause a reaction.
Good luck to everyone, I look forward to being partof this board.
