OUR PRODUCTS & INGREDIENTS
Shea butter, produced from the nuts of the karite tree, has been used for centuries in Africa to moisturize and protect the skin from sun, wind and heat. It is beneficial for aging skin as well as those with sensitive skin and skin conditions such as eczema. Shea butter also helps protect skin, providing temporal relief from irritation, dryness and wind burned skin.
Blue Lotus purchases Fair Trade certified, unrefined shea butter, produced by the Sekaf Shea Butter Village Women's Cooperative in Ghana, West Africa. The income generated by producing and selling shea butter enables the women in the cooperative to help feed their families, access medical care and send their children to school.
We whip the virgin shea butter with sweet almond and avocado oils, to create a creamy texture, with extra moisturizing benefits. Whipped shea butter is ideal for skin on areas that may need deep moisturizing, like hands, elbows and feet.
