All Heavenly Organics' Body Butters have the same 2 vital ingredients - Shea Butter and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Shea Butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African Karite (shea) Tree and has been used in African skincare for many centuries. It is the key ingredient in this Body Butter and is fair trade and organic. It can be used for skin conditions such as eczema, skin blemishes, sunburn scarring, insect bites and itching to name a few.
Shea Butter contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E and F and is an incredibly good skin healer due to its anti-inflammatory properties and reduces irritation on the skin. The fatty acids help with collagen production, improve elasticity and can maintain youthful skin. It works on the surface of the skin but also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of your skin, healing from within.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is packed with at least 4 different types of antioxidant - Vitamins A and E, phytosterols, polyphenols and avenasterol. Antioxidants in skincare help to neutralise free radicals and, in some cases, skin cancer. Chlorophyll is present in olive oil. Chlorophyll helps plants to absorb energy and get their nutrients from the sunlight. This process is called photosynthesis. It gives plants their green colour. Its rich antioxidant properties make it anti ageing and healing on the skin.
Lemongrass Essential Oil The final ingredient in this Body Butter is Lemongrass Essential Oil. This is from the tall grass that grows in tropical climates. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal - it can be used for, migraines, headaches, stomach aches and muscle aches. It is an antioxidant that can help to fight free radicals that have many negative impacts on our bodies. Lemongrass is also an insect repellent so this Body Butter is ideal for travelling.
