For many years I would watch my grandmother break bits of shea butter off a huge block that she kept wrapped in coarse brown paper next to her favourite seat. She would massage the bit of hard shea butter between her palms till it melted and started glistening. She would then proceed to gently work the melted Shea Butter into her body. I marvelled at the care she took in moisturising her flawless skin, unaware that shea butter played a big part in the smooth and youthful skin she had, which was without blemish or wrinkle.
My journey back to natural skin products started after years of trying different moisturisers which made no improvement to my dry, flaky, irritated skin. I developed dark patches on both calves and my skin tone was generally very uneven. I tried everything available but nothing worked. I finally resigned myself to the fact that I would have to learn to live with my dry, flaky skin condition.
A friend who happened to be a strong advocate for shea butter arrived at my door with a huge block of shea butter all the way from the north of Ghana. She gave me a lesson on how to soften shea butter and explained how her skin had benefitted from years of using shea butter on a daily basis. Her skin was so beautiful, supple, smooth and without blemish that I had to admit the evidence that was staring me in the face.
I thought back to my grandma’s skin and I knew I would be foolish not to at least give shea butter a try. I started researching shea butter and it amazing properties and benefits and looking for people who actually used shea butter, just to see what their skin looked like. I was sold on it. I was going back to nature and I haven’t looked back since. The dark, discoloured patches I once exhibited on my calves and other area soon disappeared and my skin is always moist and smooth even in the winter months when our skin is typically dried out by central heating. When people ask me what I use on my skin, I offer them Shea Butter, like my friend did for me.
