Convenient little moisturizing bars handy for purse or travel.
Shea butter and cocoa butter are a great combination for:
- use as a lip balm
- apply onto those fine lines around eyes
- dermatitis and eczema
a chronic condition but the combination of cocoa butter
and shea butter is very soothing for rough areas
- helps reduce appearance of scars
- helps reduce appearance of stretch marks
- moisturizer for rough spots such as elbows, knees, heels
- personal lubricant (request the addition of coconut oil)
These adorable little body butter bars are a great gift idea for the person on the go. They are small enough to tuck in a purse while traveling without adding the weight of yet another jar to the cosmetic bag
They are made up of cocoa butter, shea butter,jojoba oil, and beeswax. Cocoa butter on its own has a delicious chocolate scent so additional fragrance is not added.
Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature but melts when applied to the warmth of your skin. Cocoa butter forms a protective barrier between sensitive skin and environmental exposure.
Shea butter is another heavy butter that once it penetrates is very therapeutic for dry damaged skin. High in fatty acids needed to retain moisture and elasticity, shea butter is sometimes called African cocoa butter.
Jojoba oil, or rather a wax from the jojoba plant, is very similar to our skin's own natural oils in structure. Jojoba oil so resembles human sebum that it acts as a protective coating, sort of like a second skin.
Just rub the bar over whatever areas of your body need moisturizing, pampering or healing. Great for spot applications such as hands, lips, rough knees, elbows or heels, freshly shaven legs, dry itchy patches, scars, stretch marks. The star points work great for applying around the lips and eyes.
The usual order is 2 oz. by weight of three hearts and three stars delivered in a little basket. Baskets vary. If you prefer all the same shape let me know.
A quaint little basket is included for display at home but for portability a small tin or plastic container would be ideal. If you don't want the basket than I can send along an 8 oz size plastic jar to store them all in or a 1 oz size plastic jar which would fit one bar at a time for travel. Just let me know.
Be aware that those with nut or latex allergies may have an allergic reaction to shea butter.
