Organic Shea and Olive Body Butter

£5.95£11.00

If you love shea butter, you will love this pure and simple blend of organic shea butter and organic extra virgin olive oil.  Olive oil is rich in minerals, proteins and vitamins, especially in Vitamin E ~ which is a potent anti-oxidant.  Olive oil also replenishes moisture and nutrients, lost through exposure to the sun.
Combined with shea butter, this is a rich emollient which keeps the skin supple and silky smooth.   This is a particularly good skin food for sensitive or dry skin.

Did you know? Our organic olive oil is fairly traded with farming co-operatives in Nablus, Palestine.  Ancient olive trees are tended by farming families who have cared for their trees for generations and it is the olive tree which sustains approximately half of the population.  Farming in the West Bank is difficult & fraught with hardship, so supporting the production of olive oil provides a valuable outlet for this fragile economy.

Description

Organic Shea and Olive Body Butter

Our organic shea and olive body butter combines two wonderful ingredients in this pure and simple blend.  Olive oil is rich in minerals, proteins and vitamins, especially in Vitamin E, which is a potent anti-oxidant.  Olive oil also replenishes moisture and nutrients, lost through exposure to the sun. It has been used topically to maintain healthy skin for many thousands of years.
Combined with shea butter, this is a rich buttery emollient which keeps the skin supple and silky smooth.   This is a particularly good skin food for sensitive or dry skin. Apply it as often as required to any dry skin patches. This tub of skin softening goodness also makes a lovely rich hand and foot butter for any areas of hard, tough skin.

Organic Fair trade Olive Oil: Our organic extra virgin olive oil is rich and fragrant. This artisan oil is fairly traded with farming co-operatives in Nablus, Palestine.  Growing olives in the West Bank is fraught with hardship, so supporting the growers provides valuable support for this fragile economy under occupation. Farming families in Palestine care for their olive trees in the face of great hardship. Find out more about olive trees and Palestine here: http://www.zaytoun.org/the_zaytoun_story.html

Organic Shea Butter: A superb, natural skin food for dry skin. Ethically traded with producers in Ghana, this organic shea butter is an important resource for local communities. The producers harvest shea nuts from wild Karite trees. Regardless of their indigenous knowledge, women are often excluded from mainstream employment because they do not have a formal education. Shea butter provides a valuable and sustainable source of income to these people and ensures better amenities for their communities.

Top tip: Massage liberally into the feet before bedtime. Slip into some socks. Discover soft skin in the morning!

    So far I’ve used it on my baby daughter’s dry scalp and my parched hands. Works very well on both – first time in ages baby didn’t wake up scratching her head, which is just amazing. My hands felt fab too – takes a bit on rubbing in, but skin felt smooth, not greasy and nourished. The reason I gave 4 stars is the smell, natural as it may be, olive oil makes me think of cooking. It’s not overpowering, mind you, so is not going to stop me from buying the larger jar next time.

    Very effective moisturising – I’ve been using this on my feet and legs for a few years. It’s excellent for moisturising mature and dry skin. It softens the soles of my feet better than anything else I’ve used.
