Shea Butter

Shea Butter has shown to be a superb moisturizer, with exceptional healing properties for the skin. It is an all natural healing Vitamin A cream and Vitamin A is very important for many skin conditions including wrinkles, acne, blemishes, and eczema. Vitamin E found in shea butter helps to bring the softness back into a rough and leathery complexion. It actually helps to mitigate the damaging effects of photoaging, which include dark spots and sagging skin.

Rosehip Oil

The rosehip oil has anti-aging benefits due to its antioxidant property. It is high in vitamin A and Vitamin C which are the perfect nutrients needed to remove fine lines and wrinkles. They encourage healthy skin cell production.

Argan Oil

Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, linoleic acids, and essential omega fatty acids which repairs and hydrates the skin. This oil makes an excellent moisturizer with anti-inflammatory qualities for red, reactive skin. It is an excellent oil for healing irritated or damaged skin.

  1. Hi I think that this cream will do me a good , by removing all my dark spots on my cheeks and nose.I would like to know if you sell it on line.I am interested on trying it Thank you.

    1. Hi Naseem,
      This cream will help in dark spots removal. Unfortunately, I don’t sell this online but you can make your own at home.

    1. Hi Fletcher, you can keep the oil mixture in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes and then whip the mixture to make it creamy.

  2. This cream sounds lovely! But the essential oils seems like way more that the 1-2% suggested amount to use in a base. Will it not become a bit harsh for the skin over time? Thanks.

    1. Hi Denise,
      Thanks for pointing this out. The complete mixture is approximately 170 ml and I have used less than 2% essential oil in the recipe. There is nothing to worry about. It will not be harsh on your skin. Do let me know if you have any other query. Thanks again.

    1. Hi Nnenna,
      The shelf life depends entirely on the weather and humidity. That’s why I recommend making this in small batches. For me, it generally lasts for around 2-3 months.

  3. Hi, This sounds like a very nice “cream” but I would have called it a serum or salve because of the lack of water or other additives that can cause it to mold. The shelf life of this cream should be the shelf life if the least stable of oils in the recipe. (As long as the cream is not contaminated by use) I would imagine that the shelf life would be at least 6m- 1 yr. Am I wrong?

    1. Hi, Saner,
      As I stay in a humid place which produces mold in shea butter. Due to this, I have recommended to make it in small batches and use it within 4-6 weeks. So the shelf life depends entirely on the weather at your place.
