What’s Shea all about…

Considering that it’s pitch black when I wake up in the morning, and just as dark by 7pm, I’d say winter is coming too quickly.

Aside from the chilly temps, the wind can play havoc with your skin.

If you equate fall and winter with chapped, dry skin, it’s time for some preventative care.

Already experiencing eczema, razor burn, or skin cracks? This is for you too.

In fact, pretty much every skin condition can benefit from this wonder- Shea Butter.

Shea butter is actually the fat produced from the seed (or nut) of the African Karite tree. Due to the incredible healing effects of Shea butter, this tree is also known as the Tree of Life.

Aside from dry skin, eczema, razor burn, and skin cracks- Shea Butter is also helps…

  • eliminate blemishes
  • relieve sunburn
  • heal minor burns
  • restore skin elasticity
  • reduce wrinkles
  • protect skin from wind burn
  • even skin tone
  • reduce dry skin itching

Too often, shea butter is mixed with synthetic and cheap ingredients that diminish its natural effectiveness.

Fortunately, we have two great organic lotions that help maximize the benefits of shea butter.

Green Envee West African Shea & Calendula: This fabulous (and kid friendly) lotion is high in effectiveness, low on scent. Green Envee’s claim that this lotion is “strong enough for the driest skin, yet gentle enough for the smallest children” is spot on correct. Our subtlest scented lotion.

Green Envee Egyptian Myrrh & Sandalwood: One of our top sellers, incredibly healing with a grounding “earthy” scent. The combination of myrrh, sandalwood, and frankincense make this a first (root) and second (sacral) chakra aromatherapy dream.

Start protecting and healing your skin before the cold temperatures are truly upon us!

Daily Green Special: For every Green Envee West African Shea & Calendula or Egyptian Myrrh & Sandalwood purchase, receive a free Eco Lips classic SPF balm (protect those lips too!). Just write “tree of life” in the checkout notes and we’ll add the free balm(s) to your order. Offer valid until tomorrow’s post. Happy Wednesday!
