USDA Certified Organic Raw Shea Butter (from Key West Health and Beauty) is a product originating from the shea tree and used in Africa for centuries because of its moisturizing and healing traits. It is known for treating eczema, stretch marks, dry skin and hair, psoriasis, cracked and itchy skin. It is also known to have healing properties useful for those with rheumatism, arthritis, sunburns and even wrinkles. There are several grades of shea butter but the purest, unrefined grades have the best moisturizing and healing properties. Once the butter is refined by adding preservatives, scents and other chemicals the strength of the healing properties drops drastically.
When I started researching this product I was amazed at all the things that raw shea butter can help with. I have spent the past 20 years coloring my hair. I was looking for something to help with the dryness and the frizz. One conditioning treatment and I’m sold. Nothing can completely repair my hair besides cutting it all off, but this was a great start. After conditioning with the shea butter and blow drying it, it was manageable without much effort. The dullness was gone and it looked healthy again. A great new hair product is enough to get me on the bandwagon.
But that wasn’t all….coincidentally, my daughter’s hands had started to peel. I had her put some of the shea butter on it and the peeling stopped. Much cheaper than 3 trips to the dermatologist and 2 prescriptions!
These are only a couple of uses for raw shea butter. There is a wealth of information about raw shea butter on the internet including recipes for turning raw shea butter into lotions and creams. I can’t wait to see what I can do with it!
I have to warn you, if you’re looking for something that smells like flowers or perfume, then you are in the wrong place. But that also means you don’t really want the healing effects of raw shea butter. For me, I’m being won over by the push for organic product witch less processing and more healing. If you’ve never tried organic beauty products or you are looking for a good addition to your collection then I would consider Key West Health and Beauty’s USDA Certified Raw Organic Shea Butter. It’s a great product and it’s sourced by a woman’s co-op in Africa.I
