Did you know that October is National Fair Trade Month? Well, now you know and this is the perfect time to show your support.
Buying fair trade products ensures that you're receiving quality products and the people who create them get a fair deal for their hard work. Shea Yeleen's all natural, unrefined shea butter body products are 100% fair trade. In fact, Shea Yeleen pays their female workers in Ghana, Africa three to four times more per pound of shea butter than their competitors, allowing them to increase their incomes by an average of 200%. Through these efforts, Shea Yeleen is helping hundreds of rural shea butter processors to become active participants within the global shea butter market and generate income to send their kids to school and invest in their families. Now, I'm always down to support something like this!
Bottom line, your skin needs moisture to stay healthy and glowing. Shea Butter is one of the most hydrating moisturizers available. Stemming from the fruit of the Karite trees that grow only in central and West Africa, shea butter is high in unsaponified fat, minerals, and vitamins A and E, which help your skin retain elasticity and anti-aging cell health. While many commercial beauty products contain shea butter, very few contain unrefined shea (free of process and chemical preservatives), which is the most therapeutic and beneficial for your skin.
Shea Yeleen's body care collection of body balms, lotions, all-natural soaps and lip balms only contain the highest quality unrefined shea butter and the list of beauty ailments they can remedy are endless!
My favorite? Lavender Honeysuckle Body Balm. This dense body balm enriched with 95% unrefined shea butter, lavender and honeysuckle essential oils, moisturizes and protects the skin from daily elements leaving your skin healthy, smooth, and beautiful with a hint of fragrance. It's excellent for dry skin, especially elbows, knees, feet and hands. And you get all that for only $19.
