Our organic body butters are a blend of shea butter and extra virgin olive oil. Shea butter is the African treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, scarring sunburn, itching, insect bites & skin blemishes and this is the key and main ingredient in this body butter. We use organic (of course) and fair trade shea butter only which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F. With its incredible anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce irritation makes it such a brilliant healer. The addition of organic extra virgin olive oil provides that luxurious softness to the butter that makes it so beautiful to apply to the skin. Olive oil contains at least four different types of antioxidant: vitamins A and E, polyphenols, phytosterols and avenasterol to help maintain a healthy body. The antioxidants in olive oil work by neutralising damaging free radicals that can lead to skin aging and skin cancer. Chlorophyll is also present in olive oil – a photosynthetic pigment found in plants and algae – the life-giving part of the plant. It is an anti-aging substance that promotes the healing of skin conditions and wounds. To perfect this beautiful butter we finish it off with the addition of the very special organic rose geranium essential oil. Not only is this wonder oil anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-septic with its ability to treat acne, blemishes, cellulite, scarring, varicose veins, rosacea and dull skin, it is also uplifting, rejuvenating and can help with anxiety and depression. With its astringent properties, rose geranium can also help reduce enlarged pores. It is a balancing oil so can do wonders for balancing out uneven skin tone. With its gentle rose aroma, this body butter will delight your senses and your skin simultaneously.
