Questions and Answers
about shea butter use:
How long will your shea butter last
Our exclusive shea butter moisturizer is highly
concentrated; therefore a little goes an extremely long way.
Depending on the size you order and the frequency with which you
apply the cream, one jar generally lasts from several months up to
What is the shelf life of your
There is a 2-year shelf life
on our shea butter. We manufacture on a weekly basis, thereby
delivering an extremely fresh product to our customers.
How much and how frequently
should I apply the body butter?
We recommend starting with a very small amount and
adding from there until you are happy with the amount you are
applying. Everyone is different and uses shea butter for different
reasons. Generally in the beginning, especially if you are using it
to heal or soften dry cracking skin, cuts, or for skin conditions
such as eczema, we recommend that you use it once (or better yet,
twice) a day--morning and night--for the first 7-10 days. Once you
have attained the desired effect, you need only to maintain your
results. Maintenance is generally around 3 to 4 times per week.
When I first apply the butter
is feels a little oily. Does it absorb into the skin?
Since our moisturizer is so concentrated, people
tend to use too much at first. We recommend you start with a very
small amount and increase from there. The product does completely
absorb into your skin, even when you do use too much. Rub some creme
into your skin, and in a few minutes it will completely absorb and
your skin will be left soft and smooth with lasting results.
Is it good for dry, cracking
heels and elbows?
An emphatic YES! Shea butter is especially
beneficial for softening and preventing dryness and cracking in
those areas that tend to dry, crack and callous such as your heels
and elbows. It's also very good for your cuticle beds.
Can it help with my eczema?
We do have several customers with skin conditions who have had great success
with our exclusive formula as a natural alternative to medicated
cremes. They say that they have not been able to
use anything on their skin and that our exclusive formula has worked
wonders for them. (NOTE: generally people with skin conditions
choose either unscented or a light scent, as even essential oils can
aggravate certain skin conditions).
Can I use it on my face?
We also have customers who purchase the product
primarily for their face. If using it on your face, apply a very
thin layer. We would only recommend it if you have very dry skin on
your face. It is very good for spot areas on your face such as your
lips and around your eyes. The skin of the face is much thinner than
the skin on your body and you would want to be careful not to clog
Can I use it in my hair?
Yes it also works wonders for the hair as far as
conditioning and protection from damage related to dryness and free
radicals in the air. We recommend that you use a very small amount
when using shea butter on your hair. Rub a little into your hands
and run your fingers through your hair and on the ends. Try to apply
the butter directly to your hair rather than your scalp.
