To Slow Aging: Moisturize with Shea, Cocoa and Mango Butter

Yesterday we shared a shocking new report that found that wrinkles aren’t just skin damage. They are a build up of sick and broken cells which cause toxic inflammation, which then spills into other parts of the body, damaging them too. (“Inflammaging” is the medical term.) So wrinkles themselves contribute to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and dementia! 🤯

You can read the full report here.

Luckily experts recommend two simple solutions:

1. Stay out of the sun!  80% of visible skin damage comes from the sun. When you do go out, cover up! Wear protective clothing, sunglasses, a wide hat. 👒 And your sunscreen should have ratings for UV-B (SPF) *and* UV-A (look for UV-PF or PPD).

2. Moisturize!  It is — by far — the easiest way to keep your skin healthy. In fact, researchers studied groups of people who did and did not moisturize, and the people who moisturized had significantly better overall health!

After age 40(~ish), the moisture levels in our skin drop like a rock! And, as we covered in part one, when our skin falters, so does everything else!

Replenishing those moisture levels keeps our skin healthy, aiding the body’s natural ability to heal itself and push back against a dreaded cycle of inflammation and decline.

From the BBC;

“In one study, an international team of researchers asked older volunteers to apply a topical moisturiser twice a day for one month. Compared to older participants who had not received any treatment, the subjects’ skin was significantly restored, with lower levels of three different classes of inflammatory chemicals.

These promising results were quickly followed up with another study by the same team, which involved treating adults over 65 years old with a moisturising cream twice a day for three years. The participants’ cognitive functioning was measured at the beginning and end of the study – and after three years, though the control group had declined significantly, those who had been hydrating their skin had not deteriorated.”  

Our shea, cocoa, and mango whipped butters are perfect for moisturizing.

They are all clean and non-toxic (no synthetics or filler), making them safe for the whole family, including infants and young children. 

“This was exactly what I hoped it would be… but better. It’s so smooth and easy to apply, unlike many shea butters. Shea butter has been my go-to for years for skin health, but the quality of this product, especially for the price, far surpasses all others. I’ll be purchasing this one again and again.” — Elizabeth on Unscented Whipped Shea Butter

“This not only smells good enough to eat (don’t eat it!) but it hydrates my skin like no other. I have really bad psoriasis, especially in the winter, and it is the only product I have been able to find that is not only nourishing enough, but one I don’t have to re-apply mid-day. The scent is also just light enough (a nice touch) where it is not overwhelming or irritating for sensitive skin. Thank you so much!” — Amy T on Cocoa Shea Blended Butter

“I am a 70 year old woman with sun damaged skin and regular eczema break-outs. I have tried over-the-counter lotions and potions, and medically prescribed lotions and creams. NOTHING has worked like these body butters! They just soak in and make my skin bearable with no itching for a full day! I will never stop buying these!” — KJ Hire on Olive Oil Whipped Cocoa Butter
