Why are homemade soaps better for our skin?
All of our products are made with moisture-rich ingredients in small controlled batches to maintain the high quality.If you have ever stepped out of the shower and felt that tightening up of your skin, those days can now be in the past for you, because that does not happen when using homemade soaps!
What about our products?
The lotions and soaps we make all contain unrefined shea butter. Shea butter comes from the shea nut, which is extracted from the Karite or Shea tree in Africa.
REFINED: Refined shea butter has sodium hydroxide mixed with it which removes fatty acids; bleaching, which removes minerals; and deodorizing which eliminates the natural smell.
UNREFINED: This method has been passed down from generations by various families in West Africa. The fruit is picked, cracked, grilled and pounded to extract the butter. It is boiled until the shea butter rises, scooped out and cooled. No chemicals are added and all of the minerals and healing fatty acids are kept intact. We then add more natural oils to our products to heal dry cracked skin.
