Shea butter is a seemingly magical fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, that has many wonderful uses. Unrefined organic shea butter is especially useful for maintaining healthy hair and skin. Its antioxidant properties stimulate hair growth, while its anti-inflammatory properties heal and protect the scalp from bacteria and skin conditions. The butter also moisturizes hair while providing the scalp with protection against sun and heat damage. Its usefulness for skin does not stop at the scalp, however. Shea butter can also be used to help with stretch marks, scars, and other dermatological issues. It is one product that can do the job of many.
Eu’Genia Shea is a company known for providing high-quality, all natural, shea products. The company currently offers shea butter of three different strengths, the “Everyday”, “Pregnancy” and “Dermatological” strengths. Each one contains a different amount of pure shea butter, which is what determines its strength. The “Pregnancy Strength Shea Butter”, for instance, has a 90% shea butter content that is meant to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Customers who purchase the “Everyday” or “Pregnancy” strength butters can choose between scented and unscented options. As of right now, the two scent options are grapefruit and lavender. The company offers gift packs and monthly subscriptions for its products as well.
The Eu’Genia Shea company is also well known for promoting “female enterprise”, as MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall would say. The company employs over 700 women in Ghana and donates 15% of its profits back to them in the form of an education fund. This education fund helps the employees get their children through school. The company sets a great example for all companies out there. Employing people who otherwise may not have a great deal of opportunity for employment and providing further opportunities for their families through education, all while providing a high-quality product is an amazing feat.Categories: Skin Care
