AzSungoldSoaps has done it again. Shea butter has been gaining notoriety, and in the Jan-Feb 2011 WebMd Magazine page 101, Shea butter was listed as a skin treatment. AzSungoldsoaps has been selling a Shea Butter based Skin Lotion and aa a lip balm, and have been receiving inquireries about offering Shea Butter itself. In the "WebMd" article Shea Butter is mentioned as an option to moisturize skin, specifically in the hands and feet. It suggests using it in the evening before going to bed which allows Shea butter to do its work while you sleep. After washing and sloughing off any dry skin, apply liberally over entire area especially between fingers and toes and on nail cuticles. Then cover with gloves and socks to further enhance penetration. By the next morning the Shea Butter has penetrated leaving no greasy feeling.
Now AzSungoldSoaps is able to offer Pure Refined Odorless Shea Butter in 1 and 2 pound blocks and for those with chemical sensitivities, this super hypoallergenic product is most definitely helpful when applied directly to the skin. Although the pure refined Shea Butter is heaver/thicker and feels more greasy than our shea lotion, this greasy feeling dissipates within minutes of applying and is absorbed by the skin. In our product testing it's moisturizing properties last for many hours...sometimes even for days, after one application. What is fascinating about our Shea Butter is that it has properties of both oil and wax but unlike most store-bought lotions which unfortunately are created using synthetic emulsifiers and perfumes, our Shea Butter is 100% pure.
Shea Butter is a Environmentally friendly; Biodegradable; "Green product."
