Creme de Shea-Osmanthus
Creme de Shea is the only moisturizer I have used on my face for more than 15 years.
Creme de Shea is easily absorbed, and a tiny bit goes a long way! Spread a tiny bit onto fingertips to melt and then apply to damp skin, to lock in moisture and protect the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin
This product contains no fillers, preservatives or synthetic products. Unlike most lotions and face creams, which are made with aqueous ingredients requiring a preservative, much less product delivers the same effective protection. This 2 oz jar will last much longer than traditional face creams and lotions.
Effective for aging, sensitive or very dry skin, Creme de Shea is also a perfect eye cream and a decadent hand or foot cream. It may be also be used as a hair conditioner--apply to wet hair in the same manner as to skin (remember: a little goes a long way!) Shea butter is reported to retain skin elasticity and provide natural protection against damaging sun rays while repairing cellular degeneration from such things as wrinkles, dermatitis, burns and even stretch marks. Shea butter is also packed with antioxidants like vitamin E, as well as polyphenols and phytonutrients. These ingredients make shea butter an anti-inflammatory, which is why it works so well at moisturizing and soothing all types of skin.
Creme de Shea is made with fair trade shea butter and nourishing sweet almond oil is added to make more spreadable. It is finished with a light, pleasant osmanthus scent. We also offer a no fragrance version for those who want no added scent.
Please note: Creme de Shea melts at temperatures higher than 90 degrees. Melting won't harm the product, but heat can cause small crystals to form that make it feel a bit grainy. These will melt when rubbed onto the skin. We recommend storing in a cool location to prevent it from melting, and storing it right side up so it doesn't leak in the event that it does melt.
Because of the heat during summer months we ship with ice packs which adds to the shipping weight. We will confirm via email the extra shipping cost, and cannot guarantee that it won't melt during transit through very warm conditions.
Shea butter is derived from shea nuts. We urge caution for anyone allergic to nuts.
