It’s important to use the right type of shea butter, and the organic, unrefined type is by far the most popular. Extracted from the shea nut, Freshskin Beauty’s organic shea boasts a rich, creamy texture and aroma, and is naturally high in cinnamon acid.
Shea butter creates a breathable, water-resistant film on the skin offering some protection from UV rays, and therefore is a popular ingredient in homemade sun creams.
Available in tubs from 100g to 25kg, stock up on larger quantities of Freshskin’s organic shea butter and make great savings.
