Sun Potion | Shea Butter
I can still remember when I first moved to LA to which I was most excited to have organic food and pure, natural products at my fingertips—still scarce entities in my hometown. As a huge proponent of what native women have done for centuries to prevent aging and encapsulate youth/beauty made African women and their use of raw shea butter of no exception. After learning about even its earliest uses in Ancient Egypt where Cleopatra was associated with clay jars full of shea butter in vanity, I used to search high and low for some truly raw shea in the exact form that African women harvest and use still today. Impossible to find up until a couple of years ago.
This past week, I’ve been massaging Sun Potion's unrefined shea butter into my face, and my skin is like a glowing supple 19-year-old all over again! This is the first time I’ve had the luxury of using 100% shea and it is beyond noticeable. New staple product for sure! Especially for the rest of summer and summer travels! What a magical, natural potion. Pure skin food. I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon it.
