Here at Simply Soaps, we make no secret of the fact that we’re head over heels in love with all natural products that are outstandingly beneficial for the skin, hair and body alike. But at the same time, there are certain wonder-ingredients we simply cannot deny we love over and above most others – a prime example being Shea butter. An ingredient found in many of our products and soon to be released in a new 30ml bottle, to call Shea butter one of nature’s wonders would be something of an understatement.
It is, quite simply, incredible stuff.
The Miracle of Shea Butter
The power of Shea butter has been known within some elite circles at least since Egyptian times, when Queen Nefertiti is rumoured to have used Shea butter to retain a youthful look throughout her life. These days of course, it’s more about hard science that myth and legend, though in either case the picture painted of Shea butter’s benefits is nothing short of astonishing.
Extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree, Shea butter is in its purest form 100% organic – just as we like to keep things here at Simply Soaps. It’s always worth checking the ingredients that go into any products you buy containing Shea butter as while they may have a decent dose of the good stuff in there, chances are the rest of the makeup is far from organic – it may not even be natural, in fact. Every product we sell and every ingredient therein is 100% organic, so you can rest assured that when you buy Shea butter from Simply Soaps, you get precisely what you asked for!
An Array of Incredible Benefits
Technically speaking, there’s no big secret or mystery to the way in which Shea butter has such an amazing effect on the body both inside and out. In the age of modern science, we now know that these once overlooked nuts contain a sizeable dose of essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E and D, provitamin A and allantoin – all of which add up to what can only be described as a unique superfood both for the body’s interior and exterior.
When listed on paper, the benefits Shea butter has the potential to deliver are both outstanding and seemingly endless. A few key examples include:
• Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles • Improved appearance of scars and stretch marks • Proven anti-inflammatory properties • A rich dose of antioxidants • Uniquely effective and gentle moisturising • Strengthening of the skin and improved elasticity • Faster healing of minor wounds • Better protection against UV damage
The list goes on, but in each instance illustrates the way in which when it comes to doing what’s right by your skin and your body, Mother Nature will always know best.
A Year-Round Essential
What’s truly wonderful about Shea butter is the way in which it is able to bring your skin a whole host of benefits each and every day throughout the year. When the weather’s at its coldest, Shea butter helps prevent and repair damage. When the sun’s out and doing its thing, Shea butter can help build better UV resistance. And when things are something around the middle point weather-wise, Shea butter helps create a defensive barrier all over your skin to protect it from the various atmospheric nasties that stand to cause it harm, day in and day out.
We also love the fact that the wholly gentle and 100% organic nature of quality Shea butter makes it perfect for use by pretty much anyone of any age and with any type of skin. Even with problem skin that’s prone to redness or irritation, Shea butter has the potential to work wonders. This is precisely why you’ll find Shea butter in many of the products already on sale across the Simply Soaps collection – it’s an ingredient we genuinely believe in.
All Organic, All the Time
As already touched upon, what makes each and every product featuring Shea butter across the Simply Soaps collection so unique is the way in which we use only 100% organic ingredients and processes across the board. From the moment each ingredient is sourced to the time it arrives at your home, every step of the process is guaranteed 100% unique. This in turn assures you of a wonderfully gentle and luxurious experience when using any of our products, free from any doubt as to how kind they are to your skin.
We always say that just as soon as you’ve tried out the organic way of life for the first time, there really is no going back. For men, women and children of all ages, the difference is one you’ll see, feel, smell and fall head over heels in love with from day one.
