Indulge Your Skin & Senses With The New Range From Shea Innocence
If you’ve used products with Shea butter in you’ll know all about its fabulous moisturizing properties. If you’re a fan like I am then you’ll adore the new range from ‘Shea Innocence’ who create sumptuous body butters with it and then hand blend it with pure essential oils.
So What is Shea Butter?
It is an off white/ivory coloured natural fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It is an extremely gentle and effective moisturiser and although it is a butter, due to its fatty acid profile it melts upon contact with the skin. Shea Innocence source theirs from Ghana.
We have been testing the ‘Mandarin Body Butter For Baby & Child’ and have found it really does help with dry skin and minor irritations. My little girls are 3 and 5 and it’s been ideal as a facial moisturizer for them after bath time. My youngest is susceptible to rashes around her mouth and it’s certainly helped calm any redness. They love the smell of the mandarin which makes application easy and enjoyable. I couldn’t resist using it as a body butter and as someone with sensitive skin it’s nice for a change to have something with such a lovely, fruity scent that does it job and doesn’t aggravate my skin.
Shea Innocence also produce luxury soy wax candles with the finest quality fragrance and essential oils sourced from suppliers based in the UK. The fragrances include Mocha Vanilla, English Rose Garden & the eastern inspired Fig & Cassis Mandarin. We trialed the English Rose Garden which provides a subtle floral scent and ideal for a natural air freshener around the home. The Fig & Cassis Mandarin is best enjoyed whilst soaking in a relaxing bath and mimics any decent spa experience as it’s so exotic and indulgent.
Shea Innocence are currently developing a collection of hair care products and are in the studio hand blending a new fragrance called Enchanted Forest-sounds intriguing!
