My daughter Allie and I have to share with you our most favorite skin care product - 100% Pure Natural Shea Butter by Naturallyou. Naturallyou is a small, family owned, local company out of Atlanta that makes the highest quality shea butter. We use it several times a day in our house and look forward to the shoothing, moisturizing feel is gives our skin, especially on our faces!
Shea Butter is naturally high in Vitamins A & E and is the best thing you can do to combat wrinkles. It helps to keep them from forming as well as to reduce the appearance of the ones you already have! It is most effective for Eye Wrinkles because you can put it all over the eye area and it won't clog your pores or burn your eyes!
You simply "scrape" the pure shea butter out with the back of your finger. Then, rub it between your hands to warm it up and it will soften into a soft liquid form that you can spread all over your face and skin just like lotion!
If you think you may have tried 100% Pure Shea Butter before but are not sure, look at the picture above on the left. It is a solid block (that you have to heat with your hands), and has a distinctive smell. The smell, however, goes away minutes after you apply it. If your Shea Butter has a floral smell with a soft, whipped consistency, it's not 100%. While it may smell prettier, there has been fragrances and other ingredients added which many times can dry your skin out working against the very reason you went for Shea Butter in the first place! So, keep it natural, and get some of this local, African 100% Shea Butter. Start using it right away. Heather DiChickO

The Many Uses of Shea Butter for Beauty and Health
Skin Superfood and Healer
Shea butter is one of the best moisturizing, anti-aging regenerating and protecting natural product in the World! It protects your skin from UV sunlight, harsh climate, dehydration and pollution damages. Let's say in short that it is one of the best anti-aging agents for you skin. It strengthens your skin by stimulating the production of collagen, which is the youthful scaffolding protein in your skin. It makes it more supple, more alive, nourished and radiant. If you have wrinkles, fine lines and crow feet or if your skin is dry, very dry, damaged or devitalized, Shea butter will make all of these problems vanish and bring your skin back into life and beauty. It is the most moisturizing skin care product in the world, so choose Shea butter over over powerful anti-aging skin care products like Wild Musk Rose oil, or Argan oil during the cold and sunny seasons.
Shea butter is also one of the best skin care for winter and after-sun care. It provides the extra moisture, vitamins, nutrients and protection your skin needs during the cold season and summertime. It is also the perfect lip balm to protect your lips from the cold and dry weather and keep them beautiful.
Since Shea butter is all natural and so rich and moisturizing, it is ideal for baby care. It is natural, gentle and soft for every type of skin, but it is specially adapted for the delicate and sensitive skin of babies. It is perfect for after bath skin care and as a healer in case of eczema or diaper rash for babies and kids. African women have used it for millennia to protect and nourish their babies' skin. Using pure Shea butter on your baby guarantees you of a totally natural and chemical-free skin care. Given that lots of baby care products contain toxic chemicals, Shea butter is the best ally for eco-conscious moms.
Thanks to its deeply moisturizing qualities, Shea butter is the best revitalization cure for your hair. Dry, dull, falling, lumpy or damaged, your hair will always benefit from a Shea butter mask. The Shea butter cure is good anytime, but especially during summertime or in the tropics because of the stress your hair has to sustain from the sun and ocean, lake or rive water. Prolong the cure after you come back from vacation.
Recipe: use a nut size of Shea butter and apply evenly on your hair. Wrap your hair in a warm towel and leave on for 20-30 min. Shampoo as usual and apply either the Shea butter conditioner or pure Shea butter depending on the dryness and damage of your hair.
