It’s not lotion, it’s a nourishing balm.
Imagine using the key ingredient as the base of your skincare routine? It’s a total game changer.
Shea butter is a natural product that has been used for centuries for its amazing benefits for the skin. And it is at the heart of my family’s story and my own upbringing. My mom was born to a wonderful Ghanaian midwife named Comfort (also aptly known as Grandma Sunshine). By the year 2000, Mom was making use of Grandma Sunshine's best kept midwifery secret – raw, unrefined Ghanaian shea butter. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I decided life was too short to not spend our days together. I founded this brand with her help in 2020. We used her past experience as the President of the Global Shea Alliance to provide consumers with the best shea around, and we’re excited to carry that tradition on today.
We know it is super important to know exactly what is going on your skin, which is why we keep our ingredients as simple as possible. Rest easy knowing that what is in the tin and on your skin is there for a reason.
One of the benefits of using shea butter over lotion is that it is much more nourishing and moisturizing for the skin. Native to Africa, shea butter comes from the nuts of the shea tree. It contains a high amount of fatty acids and vitamins that work together to deeply moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
Another great thing about shea butter is that it is all-natural and free from harmful chemicals. Many lotions on the market contain ingredients that can be harmful to your skin, such as parabens and sulfates. These chemicals can dry out your skin and cause irritation. Shea butter, on the other hand, is completely natural and gentle on the skin.
Shea butter is also great for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog your pores, and it is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Plus, it can be used on all parts of the body, from your hair and face to your feet!
But perhaps the best thing about shea butter is its ability to soothe and heal the skin’s appearance. It contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help reduce inflammation and redness, as well as fight against free radicals that can cause premature aging. Shea butter can also help prevent the materialization of stretch marks, scars, and soothe other skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
We’ve only just begun to express the true magic behind this wonderbalm, and why it is a fantastic alternative to regular lotion. Its natural and nourishing properties make it perfect for anyone looking to improve the healthy appearance of their skin. So next time you're in the market for a new moisturizer, consider giving Mother's Shea a try. Send us pics of your before and after and consider your life forever changed!
