It’s no coincidence that the word ‘’butter’’ in Shea Butter reminds us of food. In several countries like Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ivory Coast and etc., Shea Butter is used as a cooking oil staple. It’s also a primary ingredient in nearly all the products we make at Belle Aglaia. Given our creed, “If you can’t put it on your tongue, don’t put it on your skin” – it makes sense that Shea Butter is indeed, a principal foundation for crafting great natural products.
Growing up in West Africa, there are two sure things. First, Shea Butter is available everywhere. Second, it has been and continues to be an important item in women’s beauty regimen, giving them beautiful glowing skin.
The good news is, everyone across the globe can benefit from it as well. Quite simply, Shea Butter has many wonderful qualities for your skin. It contains a high concentration of natural Vitamins A & E, important for healthy skin. It is an excellent moisturizer with a low melting point. This allows it to absorb into the skin rapidly. It helps relieve the symptoms of conditions like Eczema and other skin irritations. One of my favorite benefits is its ability to hydrate skin and lock in moisture, without clogging pores.
