ingredient shoutout 🔥 shea butter

April 6, 2018

We LOVE shea butter here at TBL - we use it in a ton of our base formulas (it's in our Revitalizing Body Cream, Tingly Peppermint Foot Cream, Mint Chocolate Body Scrub, and Shea Butter Body Cream (obviously 😉) a few for reference). So we think it's deserving of it's own lil' shoutout.

 

Shea butter is a fatty oil that comes from the fruits/nuts of the shea tree (in West Africa) when they are crushed and then melted into butter. 

 

 

Why is it so amazing?

 

Shea butter is very nutrient rich with vitamins like A (which has regenerative properties and is incredibly moisturizing), E (a powerful antioxidant that help keep the skin looking young), F (seals in that moisture, keeps it elastic, and creates a protective barrier), and K (can help treat things like rosacea, scars, stretch marks & burns).

 

You can read about it's anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting compounds

 

Shea butter is also a great choice for skincare because it melts at skin temperature 🙌🏼it can be used alone or mixed with other natural ingredients, has an amazing buttery consistency (YUM), is GRAS by the Food and Drug administration, and it has been used to moisturize, relieve sunburns, & reduce scaring for centuries.  

 

It can be used for almost any body care ❤

 

 

· It's been show to reduce dandruff (when used on the scalp and hair)

· It can help with stretch marks during pregnancy

· It can help with a raw nose during cold season

· Can be used in homemade deodorant 

· Can help with blemishes

· or use it as a cuticle cream

 

+ We love to use it as a massage butter!

Arrowroot powder is one of our organic ingredients that doesn't get the praise it deserves. It's incredibly versatile and has many healing properties (eaten or topical) + has a range of benefits for your hair and skin ❤️

Arrowroot powder is a starch that can be used in personal care products as a thickening agent or as an ingredient that helps absorb moisture (like when used in deodorant). When used on the skin, it penetrates the upper layers which helps soften it and allows your skin to absorb more moisture and other active ingredients in the product to absorb deeper, AND it can help gently dry out skin troubles like blemishes, rashes, and sores. 

When used in hair care products it can help absorb sweat and oil, keeping hair from becoming greasy + also makes your hair soft and smooth (you could even use it...
