April Apothecary Tip: Shea Butter

Nothing hydrates your skin like Shea Butter -- it’s deeply moisturizing and soothing, and has exceptional healing properties.  Extracted from the nut of the shea tree in Western Africa, it protects your skin from dehydration and sun, and is chock-full of vitamins!  Vitamin A, which can help with blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, burns and stretch marks, vitamin E (a great antioxidant!), and vitamin D, all blended into one magical oil.

Here at Molly Muriel, we buy shea butter from a fair-trade, sustainable source, and use it to make our Butter Up soap:

Use Butter Up when you want to give yourself some extra love!  It’ll soften and soothe that dry winter skin with truly luxurious moisturizing.

Shea butter is also used in our lotions and lip therapy!  Check them out here.
