Shea Butter with Lavender
100% pure Grade A Shea butter with lavender is a superb moisturizer with exceptional healing properties for the skin. We add pure Lavender essential oil - revered for its calming, engaging fragrance and healing properties to create a mildly fragrant healing and moisturizing cream.
Only the best Shea butter is hand-prepared without chemical extraction, bleaching or whitening agents that strip its healing properties. It is high in vitamin A and E, along with vital phytonutrients to heal and condition the skin. Its healing properties for blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, dermatitis, chapping, skin allergies, insect bites, sunburn, frostbite and other skin conditions are well documented. More recent research shows proven effectiveness in healing cuts, abrasions, surgical incisions as well as preventing tattoo scarring.
Finding such a high quality Shea butter is difficult. More common but less pure grades are chemically extracted, or are diluted with other ingredients and may moisturize but do not heal. Commercially available, pure white or very deep yellow Shea butter has been extracted with hexane or other petroleum solvents which are carcinogenic. After extraction, it is refined, bleached and deodorized which destroys any healing properties it had.
Our premium, 100% pure, grade A Shea butter has a light yellow color and a slight aroma that identifies it as real. The yellow color indicates the vitamin A content, and the smooth creamy consistency shows the handmade origin, as it is never granular or gritty. It will melt easily in your hand and be absorbed immediately into the skin.

Global Mamas Pure Shea gives Ghanaian women an opportunity to support themselves and their families in a sustainable partnership with nature.

Very good lotion/cream
Great for my hands (and elbows); fast healing properties if used daily, a nice calming aroma when used at bedtime. I will use this product year round since Idaho winter chores are tough on my skin.
Best hand cream I've ever used. Doesn't make my hands feel greasy, absorbs beautifully. The scent is perfect, not too strong.
I love the original shea butter, but with a hint of lavender, it is so soothing. Not too strong and I use it on my hands after dishes or working in the garden.
