How to Use a Shea Butter Balm
A little goes a long way as our butter balm is a solid butter -- more concentrated, thicker + richer than your average body butter because it's water-free.
Our favorite way to use shea butter is to take a pea sized amount out of the jar with the back of your fingernail. Melt it between your fingers + then spread where ever you need a good dose of therapeutic moisture.
Rub it into your driest skin, into the cracks in your hands, elbows, knees + feet.
Repairing Hand Treatment
Especially at night, when the nutritive shea has extended uninterrupted hours to soothe + soften your skin. Like a regenerative mask, the nutrients have time while you slumber to deeply penetrate into the dermal layers your dry skin, carrying the plant essences into your cells.
Soothe + Protect Over-worked Skin
Shea Butter is rich, healing + protective. Slather generously onto hangnails, chapped lips + work-worn skin.
Harsh Weather Protection
Since shea is so thick, you can use it as a protective barrier to preserve your skin when sailing, surfing, rafting, rock climbing, or skiing, or in extreme weather conditions like high altitude, freezing cold + high winds.
Shea Butter also give a bit of natural sun protection offering between 6-10 SPF. Most commonly it's at about a 7 SPF.
