RococoChichi Whipped Shea Butter – 30ml (£3.50)
At first glance you’d be forgiven for overlooking this unassuming little tin. But unscrew the lid and insert a digit into the ‘literally’ whipped shea butter and release the infused aroma of either Lavender or Vanilla, depending on which choice you go for. We’re not talking supermarket synthetic vanilla or lavender, we’re talking 100% natural essential oils that have been whipped together with 100% natural moisturising shea butter.
I’ve long been a fan of shea butter. It is sourced from Africa, extracted from the shea nut and it’s fatty oil is rich in vitamins A, D and E. But this is the first time I have found it whipped together with Jojoba oil, Vitamin E and either Lavender or Vanilla oil. The result is a lighter textured, easier to use product, which not only smells good but also has a whole host of applications.
In short, you can use this anywhere and everywhere. Anywhere you have dry or chapped skin. Use it as a lip balm, rub a little onto dry elbows or knees. Use it on dry or cracked heels, rough or peeling skin, sun burn and blemishes. The lavender butter in particular is good rubbed onto insect bites. You can even use it on dry hair and that includes beards. The list is ‘almost’ endless!
The only decision you have to make is are you going for the antiseptic and antifungal properties of lavender oil, or the uplifting mood enhancing properties of natural vanilla.
The raw shea butter they use has been certified organic by the Soil Association and certified Fairtrade by the Fairtrade labeling organization (FLO). All the ingredients are 100% natural and handmade by RococoChichi in London.
