Spotlight Product: Infused Butter
A revered natural humectant, Raw Shea Butter intensely hydrates and protects skin by acting as a natural moisture barrier. A staple of African Pharmacology, Shea Butter has a rich history dating back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt. Our Infused Butters blend 98% Organic Shea Butter with an essential oil and extract blend to bring you a luxurious and ultra-moisturizing total body balm. We are often asked about how to use Infused Shea Butters, and are happy to report that there’s no wrong way to use them!
Our Infused Butters can be used from head–to-toe and are incredibly hydrating. A little goes a long way, so a small amount is able to condition and soften your skin. Before using the Infused Butter for any purpose, begin with a dime-sized amount. You can do this with a spoon or with your fingers. Take the small amount of Butter, which may appear solid, and hold between the palms of your hands. Your body heat will naturally warm the Butter so it can be easily massaged and absorbed into the skin.
The Infused Butter can be used to smooth flyaway hairs or slick down a bun hairstyle. For those with a dry scalp, it can be used to moisturize the scalp as you would with a hair or scalp oil. If your hair is in need of more intense moisture, consider using the Infused Butter as a conditioner or pre-shampoo to minimize potential dryness. Raw Shea Butter, rich in antioxidant Vitamins E and A, aids in relieving chapped skin and soothing symptoms associated with minor skin irritations. Massage the Infused Butter into especially dry areas of your body, such as knees, feet, elbows and hands, to help lock in moisture and soften. Pair the Infused Butter with a pair of socks and gloves or try our Intensive Moisture Kit for overnight skin therapy. Dab a little on your lips for a natural, emollient lip balm.
Women who are pregnant can rub the Butter on their stomachs to help reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks or help prevent new ones from developing, while aiding in supporting skin’s elasticity. Infused Butters are available in all your favorite Nubian Heritage collections to moisturize and rejuvenate your skin.
