HOW WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER BENEFITS SKIN

Moisturizing

Shea butter is an occlusive agent, meaning it prevents water loss in skin. When applied to damp skin or hair it locks in moisture for 12 to 48 hours.

“I have dry skin. Always been that way, but I hated using vaseline or the really heavy lotions that just make you feel greasy. On the other end of the spectrum are light ones that disappear 10 minutes later leaving me looking like I was out kicking sand. I say all of this to emphasize just how perfect the balance is of this stuff. Moisturizing but not greasy.” — Anita Bowman on Vanilla Whipped Shea Butter

Softening Skin

Shea butter is an emollient, meaning it softens skin. It does this in part by boosting collagen production and helping the body regenerate skin cells.

“I absolutely love the vanilla shea butter! It smells subtly like ice cream and it makes my skin so soft.” — Tessa

Reducing Redness and Irritation

When applied to skin, shea slows the production of inflammatory cells. A customer shared this photo of a nasty sunburn that disappeared within weeks with daily application of Rose Blended Butter and Lavender Whipped Shea Butter.

Relieving Eczema

Shea butter’s anti-inflammatory properties work powerfully against eczema flare ups.

“Not only do the whipped butters feel good on the skin and hair, they have also helped my daughter with her eczema… She hasn’t been scratching at all since using this! Win!” — Kristen on Whipped Butters 6 oz Sample Pack

Clearing Scars and Dark Spots

By accelerating skin regeneration, whipped shea butter brightens dark spots on knees and elbows, as well as scar marks.

“It makes my feet smooth, my face even toned and my elbows were dark and now the darkness is gone. Love, Love, Love it!!!!!” — Denise on Whipped Butters Sample Pack

Reducing Stretch Marks

Shea butter reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

“I use the butter immediately after my morning shower, and my skin stays moisturized and soft all day long, even in harsh Midwest weather. I have also noticed dark stretch marks that I once had have begun to fade, some are barely noticeable.” — Jaylen on Sandalwood & Bergamot Blended Butter

As an Alternative to Perfume

Whipped shea butter scented with essential oils is a natural alternative to perfume.

“I freaking love it, it smells so good! I apply it straight out of the shower so my skin can absorb it. I’m moisturized all day and I smell amazing all day. I’ve had random people say I smell so good. ????” — BJ Faustin on Mocha Latte Blended Butter

HOW WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER BENEFITS HAIR

Hair Growth

Shea butter locks moisture into strands, strengthening them significantly. Stronger hair is less prone to breakage, facilitating growth.

“The first pic is before I started using shea butter on my hair and before I learned how to properly moisturize it and detangle it. The second picture is AFTER I used the vanilla whipped shea butter from @bglhmarketplace and learned how to properly take care of it. I see a BIG difference in my hair and it’s softer than ever. I’m also able to retain moisture and my hair is growing. These pictures are only a couple months apart.”

Relieving Itchy, Dry Scalp

Shea butter’s anti-inflammatory properties provide significant scalp relief.

“This Mango Shea butter is amazing for my hair! Especially if you suffer from a dry scalp or dandruff like me ???? I have noticed a significant difference just after my first time use of applying the Mango Shea butter onto my scalp for about 30–60 minutes right before I washed my hair. This will forever be part of my hair washing routine!” — Jennifer on Mango Shea Blended Butter

“My scalp psoriasis has been out of control lately. I usually do oil treatments but I knew that I needed some shea butter for deep healing. I was not disappointed. I have a short black pixie cut and my hair is naturally thick, but since my scalp is so sensitive, I’m really picky with products. But this stuff is incredible. I massaged a little bit into my scalp and hair, then brushed it out. My hair stayed silky smooth, shiny, and manageable for several days after with no grease or grime. I can’t stop touching my hair.”

As a Styling Cream

Shea butter has strong hold and can be used to sculpt styles like twists, twist outs and wash and go’s.

“I use your Olive Oil Whipped Cocoa Butter and Mocha Latte Blended Butter for wash and go’s on both my and my daughter’s hair.” — Laura
