Native to West African countries, the shea tree grows predominantly wild in the African Savannah. The fruit of the shea tree has been an important material to the local people who have used it for hundreds of years for food, medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It also serves as a vital source of income for a number of African communities. Shea butter contains vitamins and other active elements such as cinnamic acid, which can help protect the skin from UV rays as well having healing properties. It also contains 5-10% phytosterols, which are said to help to stimulate cellular regeneration and growth. It is highly moisturising and is claimed to have mild anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. We normally use gently refined, organic Shea butter from a fairly traded project in Ghana.
Olive Oil is a classic oil for dry skin. It is an occlusive, protecting the skin against the elements with an oily layer which also helps to keep moisture in the skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can protect against insect bites and damaged skin.
Coconut oil comes from crushed copra, the dried meat of the kernels of the coconut. It has a long tradition amongst Asian & Pacific populations of being a 'cure for all illnesses' and the coconut palm, termed 'The Tree Of Life' is a highly valued source of nutrition & medicine.Coconut oil lathers readily and makes a fine cleanser.
Castor seeds originate from India and have spread to countries like Russia, China, Paraguay and Brazil. However, India remains the main producer of the seed oil. Our castor oil is from Peru and has been sustainably farmed. Castor oil is a humectant, meaning it attracts water so has good lubricating properties. It is ideal for use in nail care products and lipsticks as well as balms & cleansers & exfoliants.
The palm tree grows across the equatorial regions of the world, from places like Malaysia and Columbia to West Africa. Palm oil has a high vitamin E content, so is an excellent addition to healing creams, and hair care products. There have been huge concerns about the devastating effects palm plantations are having on ancient forests and endangered species. We use organic palm oil that is sourced from sustainable, eco-friendly crop plantations in Columbia.
