Cleopatra's Choice was generous enough to send me one pound of their 100% Pure African Shea Butter for the purpose of this review. I was excited, because I had only recently learned all of the benefits of Shea butter, and many of them apply to me! My skin is combination skin and has been going through some rough patches, literally. At the same time, I am combating little patches of acne that have decided to magically invade my life now that I am already in my twenties (?). On top of that, my hair is coarse and dry to begin with, and heating it with a straightener to remove my unruly waves only increases the damage. I knew that Shea butter was useful for all of these things, and more!
The 100% Pure African Shea Butter from Cleopatra's Choice comes in a one pound, plastic container, and is mostly formed into a solid "brick". Shea butter comes in two different varieties: Ivory and Yellow. I received the Ivory Shea butter. The container is recyclable, and will come surrounded by bubble wrap in perfect packaging with a quick shipment! As I've described before, Shea butter is a product of the Shea Tree nut, which is native to certain parts of Africa. Tribal women in Africa have a special process for harvesting the raw Shea butter. Cleopatra's Choice participates in fair trade - women subsistence farmers in Ghana, Africa are compensated. The organic, raw, and unrefined Shea butter is the only type of Shea butter that retains the FULL nutrients and vitamins of the Shea Tree Nut. Therefore, raw Shea butter has the BEST healing qualities.
Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter is full of Vitamins such as Vitamins A and E, which are wonderful for your skin. Vitamin A is known to help treat a whole host of skin conditions and has antioxidant and healing properties. Vitamin E is great for healing and moisturizing. Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter is free of parabans, sulfates, and petroleum. It is cruelty free! This Shea butter absorbs deeply for maximum, long lasting hydration. It is for topical use, and can be applied anywhere throughout the body. It is easiest to apply the Shea butter if you grab a small amount and warm it up in your palms before lathering it on. You can put it on your face, your neck, your arms, your hair.. the options are endless! Shea butter is great for use on cracked or irritated skin because it is a natural healer. Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter is also great for use in fading stretch marks.

Cleopatra's Choice Shea butter is very high-quality. Many people complain about the smell, but you have to remember, this is a raw product -- how do you think all those nice shampoos and conditioners get their scents? By adding in additional ingredients, most of the time chemicals. If you want what is best and most nutritionally beneficial to your skin, unrefined and organic Shea butter is the way to go. I actually don't mind the smell.. it is, to me, very subtle and non-irritating. It doesn't smell like roses, but it isn't horrid, or anything. It is earthy and nutty. This Shea butter is easy to apply, and I ended up using it on my face (especially where I have acne spring up), on my dry hands, and on my damaged hair. A lot goes a little way, so you really don't have to apply a ton. It is only slightly greasy when you first apply it, but not enough to clog up your pores or irritate your skin. In fact, it does the very opposite -- it has a moisturizing, soothing feel that really sinks into your skin. It doesn't absorb as fast as oils and serums, but it does a wonderful job of hydrating. I applied the Shea butter to the tips of my hair, where I tend to get split ends. My hair looked shiny and new after a few days, because it was actually retaining moisture! I really think my dry skin has been improving as well. I can't wait to see what this does for my stretch marks. Many have already faded, but I would like to see if this could help dull the color of the more purple stretch marks. I think this is a wonderful and versatile product, because there are so many uses for it. Not only can you use if for skin and hair...you can also use it as an ingredient to make your own soaps and lotions. You can even use it as a lip balm! I could really see myself using this on my cracked/dry lips in the winter.
