Sensitive skin is smart skin, Tammie believes. It is skin that knows how to select only healthy ingredients. It is skin finicky enough to know that only the most gentle, natural ingredients should ever cross its dermis. Envision slathering your skin with a soft, buttery oil found growing where the wild animals still play. A rare butter that comes from nuts that women gather and care for like babies. Next, imagine enveloping your skin in pure, mineral rich spring water. No chemical water for your smart skin. This is water gushing forth from mountain top springs. All of your sensitive skin visions of blissdom now come true in this generous jar of Shea Nilotica Sensitive Skin Shea Butter Cre'me.
Shea Nilotica Sensitive Skin Shea Butter Cre'me is made with a whopping 30% Shea Nilotica - a soft, more fragrant butter found growing only in parts of Uganda and southern Sudan. This butter differs from its western counterpart in that it its olein content is higher, making the butter softer. Shea Nilotica is naturally high in vitamins A and E, making the butter very healing and anti-aging. Shea Nilotica Sensitive Skin Shea Butter Cre'me is 99.7% natural, without any fragrances and a very mild, naturally based preservative. Our simple formulation differs from most sensitive skin formulas made up mostly of toxic chemicals. Our buttery cream is great for the elderly, babies, people with extremely dry and cracked skin, as well as those with eczema and psoriasis. It is perfect for growing tummies, feet, hands and everything in between. Made with a large percentage of shea butter, this sensitive skin formula protects skin for hours.
What makes Shea Nilotica shea butter even more amazing and wonderful is the women who make it. Although we painted a picturesque, whimsical scene for the Ugandan woodlands, it has also been a landscape of torture for many of these women. A rebel army in Northern Uganda continues to pose a threat to these women today. Many of them have escaped captivity and torture at the hands of their captors. Forced to march with the army, many of these women were raped and their husbands and children murdered. Selling their shea butter to Shea Terra Organics has given new hope to these women. Their carefully tended nuts are sent to a mill where their butter is made for them saving them hours of backbreaking work. Making approximately four to eight times their western counterparts, selling their shea butter enables them and their children to flourish. They eat well, buy their own houses built by Homes for Habitat, grow their own gardens, send their children to school and start their own businesses.
