Amber Rose Has Been Using Shea Butter as an All-Body Moisturizer for Years

• Mar 8, 2018

I come across a lot of interesting things as I do research and marketing for BGLH Marketplace. One thing I discovered is that Amber Rose is a huge fan of shea butter and has been singing its praises in interviews for years.

In an Elle Magazine feature in November 2009;

Elle: When I saw you at the Women in Hollywood Awards last month, your skin glowed like nothing else. What products do you use?
Amber: Thank you so much! I’ve always been good about moisturizing. Every morning and every night, everyday. What I do, and this sounds kind of weird, but I buy these pint-size containers of raw African shea butter from street vendors, I microwave it, and after I shower, I rub it everywhere. Even on my scalp and face. Nothing works better. And it’s cheap!

And in an interview with The Cut in August 2016;

The Cut: When I saw you at the Women in Hollywood Awards last month, your skin glowed like nothing else. What products do you use?
Amber: Thank you so much! I’ve always been good about moisturizing. Every morning and every night, everyday. What I do, and this sounds kind of weird, but I buy these pint-size containers of raw African shea butter from street vendors, I microwave it, and after I shower, I rub it everywhere. Even on my scalp and face. Nothing works better. And it’s cheap!

 

A lot of people think microwaving and melting is the only way to apply shea. But that is exactly why we whip it! The air we whip into our butters gives it softness, absorbency and spreadability, allowing you to get the full benefit without the messy ‘microwave and apply’ routine.

It’s awesome that Amber knows that you don’t need fancy and expensive lotions to get soft, moisturized and brilliant skin. Shea (or mango or cocoa) butter is really all you need! Check out our selection here.

And who can argue with Amber’s glow?
