What are the benefits of using African Shea Butter on the skin?

Shea Butter is a true wonder from nature. Rich in fatty acids and vitamins, it offers incredible hydration and nourishment. It’s especially beneficial for melanated Black and African American skin, working to enhance its natural glow and smoothness.


How is Shea Body Butter different from regular lotion?

We craft our Shea Body butter from 100% African Shea Butter combined with Organic Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Essential Oils, and a sprinkle of love. Unlike commercial lotions, our butter is free from harmful chemicals and provides deeper, long-lasting moisture, so you no longer have to worry about constant reapplication.


Can Shea Butter be used on your face?

Absolutely! Shea Butter is gentle and packed with antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for facial skin. It's nourishing, doesn't clog pores, and can enhance the skin's natural barrier. We also offer an unscented option for more sensitive skin. Just remember, a little goes a long way!


Does Shea Butter work for psoriasis or eczema?

Many customers have found relief using Shea Butter for their psoriasis or eczema. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe the skin and reduce redness. However, it's always best to consult a dermatologist for severe skin conditions.


How do I store my Shea Body products?

Shea Body is heat-activated and can melt if exposed to high temperatures. Please store it in a cool, dry place to preserve its consistency. When expecting a delivery, monitor the tracking so your package isn't left outside for too long.


Why should I choose Shea Body over Shea Butter brands?

Shea Body, LLC is a black-owned, woman-owned small business that hand curates each product. Beyond our commitment to quality, we focus on delivering exceptional customer service and products that exceed your expectations.


What do you have for the guys? Do you cater to beards, too?

Of course! Our 'Shea Body for Men' collection is tailor-made for our men. And for those sporting a beard? We have just the thing. Our Beard Oil is a game-changer. It is designed to moisturize and soften beard hair and care for the skin beneath.


Which scents should I try if I'm new to Shea Body?

If you want to dive deep into the Shea Body experience, our Sample Packs are your perfect intro. They're curated to give you a taste of our signature blends. They can also be purchased in bulk and make stocking stuffers or great party favors for your next event.
