Fort Thomas, KY The African Store (TAS), (http://www.theafricanstore.org) introduces 100% pure and unrefined natural Shea Butter to our online customers for the Holidays. Be it Christmas, Kwanzaa, Valentine's Day, or just casual gift giving, Shea Butter makes a great gift for anyone. The African Store offers this wonderful natural African skin and hair care product.
Shea Butter is definitely important to every skin -- sensitive and non-sensitive skin alike because it has natural active compounds that are not in other skin care products like night creams, eczema creams, wrinkle creams, or even anti-aging creams. When applied, dry hands and skin are new again within seconds.
Shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa and later in Europe to fight a multitude of skin conditions, and internal illnesses. Shea Butter has been clinically proven to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and its reputation is fast becoming one of an anti-aging compound. In fact, Cocoa Butter was widely used by most major U.S. and European cosmetics companies before Shea Butter was introduced. Since then, Shea Butter is now used more often than Cocoa Butter in most natural skin care products.
Pure Shea Butter has a unique earthly smell and texture during application but it quickly dissolves into your skin and the smell becomes unnoticeable after that. That is why so many retailers and cosmetic companies go out of the way to come up with some Shea Butter products that will sort of smell good by adding cheap and artificial perfumes or oils. This does not only reduce the natural healing effects of Shea Butter but it may or can cause some serious skin reactions. The use of certain chemicals in making skin care products is known to cause skin cancer today.
Along with Shea Butter, The African Store also retails the world-famous Dudu-Osun African Black Soap. Dudu-Osun African Black Soap has been the best selling African Black Soap since its introduction some years ago. Thanks to the all-natural tropical ingredients like Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Honey, Lime and Lemon juice that are used in making this luxurious and natural African Black Soap. Dudu-Osun African Black Soap is for any skin type and all human races. It gets its name from the colour of the soap (brownish-black), which is due to the ingredients used in making it.
We are promoting our African Shea Butter to raise more money for day to day operations and future expansion. We are able to offer discount prices because Shea Butter is in high-demand and we can afford to beat other retailers' prices due to our connection to the sources of Shea Butter. This sourcing advantage enables us to offer customers our affordable and high quality Shea Butter.
The African Store currently offers only 100% pure and unrefined Shea Butter. Unrefined and pure Shea Butter is different because it retains most of its rejuvenating, antiseptic, and healing qualities unlike the refined Shea Butter, which loses most of these properties during the production process. This involves cheap solvent extraction that strips down most of the properties of Shea Butter.
Shea Butter from The African Store provides immediate moisturizing, soothing, protection for the skin due to its high content of unsaponifiable fats and vitamins. Shea Butter protects against inflammations and UV rays due to its high content in cinnamic acid and it helps prevent certain sun-caused skin allergies due to its latex contents. The use of Shea Butter on small cuts and wounds enables the skin to heal faster and to prevent major scars prom appearing. The circulation of capillary and regeneration of the skin cells by Shea Butter helps make this rapid healing possible. Shea Butter works wonders on stretch marks, dry hair, dermatitis, eczema, burs and sunburns, acne, dry skin, sore and aching joints and muscles, rheumatism, and many more. Immediately after application, there is a tingly sensation that comes with Shea Butter. Small dab of Shea Butter in and around the nostrils helps reduce or stop nose irritation due to allergies and cold. The protective firm from Shea Butter also helps keep the skin warm during the winter cold and wind. Above all, Shea Butter has been clinically proven to contain anti-aging properties.
Unlike most crops, the Shea nut that produces the Shea Butter grows naturally on its own. Every attempt to alter its growth and quality by scientists has failed, leaving us with high quality natural skin care product and limited supply sources. This explains why most cosmetic companies use between 5 and 30% of Shea Butter on their cheap products. The Shea (Karite) tree grows mainly in West African countries like Ghana and Nigeria. It has a life span of two centuries and can grow up to 20 meters high. After blooming from June to July, it bears fruits that fall to the ground when ripe. The fruit contains the nut, which is then boiled to remove the Shea nut that produces Shea Butter. The Shea nut is dried in the sun, cracked open and then pounded to release the Shea Butter from the Shea nut. The content is boiled and stirred over a long period on firewood. The Shea Butter is stirred until its colour turns buttery. The Shea Butter is poured into containers to cool off and then sold locally or shipped worldwide.
Our Shea Butter comes straight from Africa ready to use but we also melt and filter them before pouring them into containers to remove most of the unharmful particles that comes with the crude man-made production and to make it presentable. Our Shea Butter is always creamy and non-greasy unlike some that are mixed up with other substances by other retailers. Our unedited customers' testimonials say it all. The shelve live of most unrefined and pure Shea Butter is two years but you will unlikely find one that is more than one year old due to the scarcity of Shea Butter supply.
