Made mostly from PURE UNREFINED AFRICAN SHEA BUTTER, the Shea Butter I use is produced by traditional method (cold pressed) from finest grade shea nuts....NO chemicals/solvents are used in production of the Shea Butter I use. This balm helps with the itchiness and discomfort that occurs from the stretching of the skin during pregnancy. I add skin healing oils to the shea butter..each one lending a particular advantage to this balm, I also add vitamin E & ALOE VERA OIL ( I never use aloe vera JUICE in my recipes...is just like WATER-decreasing your benefits!)which is best for comforting, soothing and calming the skin.
* NO ADDED WAXES, which is mainly used to allow merchants to use LESS active ingredient(shea butter)!*
UNREFINED AFRICAN SHEA BUTTER - shea butter in its purest form with all of its original minerals, vitamins & antioxidants. By making up for lipid deficiencies in the epidermal cells, Shea Butter provides the skin with all the ESSENTIAL elements it needs for GOOD BALANCE.
SHEA NUT OIL - same qualities as shea butter, just liquified. Instead of using cheap "filler" oils like sunflower oil, I use shea nut oil, which is just more shea butter...the more the better!!
VITAMIN E - this acts as a natural preservative
EMU OIL - To PREVENT stretch marks, moisture is key. Emu oil is naturally moisture-rich and penetrates within your skin quickly and thoroughly, ensuring that it receives the maximum amount of moisture--much more than with traditional treatments such as cocoa butter or "less expensive" oil mixtures. It is quickly and easily absorbed into the skin, rather than simply "sitting" on the top layer of your skin cells, as most other oils and lotions do. You receive the benefits of emu oil deep in your epidermis.
INTRODUCING YET ANOTHER ONE OF AFRICA'S MIRACLE OILS- extracted from trees in southern Africa & parts of West Africa like shea butter, this fast absorbing light oil reduces trans-epidermal water levels, so it keeps skin ultra hydrated. Helps reduce redness and vascular pigmentation or it heals skin tissue. Smooths out skin, provides skin plumpness, increases skin elasticity so it is ideal for reducing or avoiding stretchmarks during pregnancy. This is a completely natural & pure oil...welcome to African based skincare. Alot of merchants have never heard of this oil, but I make it my mission to bring my clients the newest, most effective and UNIQUE African based oils to increase benefits to their skin. Be the first to try out this new but vastly talked about oil. The benefits are numerous & it is extracted from a tree in Africa, just like the Karite tree, which is where Shea Butter comes from.
WHEATGERM OIL - Wheatgerm oil has the highest content of vitamin E among carrier oils, so I had to add this to my balm. Vitamin E is essential in skin regeneration & replenishing. Replenishing the skin's lipid barrier is important for the skin's hydration and protection. In other words, the outside layer of skin has to be replenished before the lower levels are able to be protected and hydrated...hydrated skin does not develop stretch marks, because it is moisturized enough that the skin elasticity is high, so it does not go into shock from pregnancy or weight loss or weight gain.
MACADEMIA NUT OIL - great carrier oil that is great for moisturizing the many levels of the skin. This thick oil is sure to help in the replenishing and protection of your skin during your pregnancy. This oil will also increase elasticity of your skin, allowing skin to stretch without leaving hard to remove stretchmarks or bruises in the epidermal cells or outside epidermis layer of skin.
ALOE VERA OIL, not JUICE- Aloe has over 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins, aloe is a NATURAL ingredient that is known to moisturize & heal skin. I added Aloe to soothe and calm the skin cells during the shock of being stretched and pulled. Aloe vera improves hydration is soothing and healing to all skin types. Chemical analysis has shown the presence of mucopolysacharides, a natural moisturizing factor. Aloe vera also contains the "youth mineral" potassium. Has renown healing properties, anti-inflammatory and can soothe the skin and help heal cuts, grazes, burns and insect bites. In 1500 BC the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus recommended aloe for skin care, burns and rashes. In the 1930s a radiologist discovered that aloe vera is effective in treating radiation burns.
COCOA BUTTER - Cocoa butter is KNOWN for its ability to fight off stretch marks, so I had to add this butter to my balm. Cocoa butter is a natural antioxidant that clears and smooths skin considerably well. It is most commonly used for dry skin and the treatment of stretch marks, and has a natural source of vitamin E. It is also an excellent treatment for chapped hands, lips, PREGNANT skin and skin irritation. I added the Cocoa butter to soothe the itchiness that comes with skin stretching. Cocoa butter does not contain any petroleum, preservatives or harsh chemicals.
THE BALM IS UNSCENTED, there are to be NO type of essential oils used by pregnant or nursing women!! There is a natural buttery scent from the Shea Butter & a hint of chocolate from the Cocoa butter. This TOO is an ANCIENT AFRICAN RECIPE...these are actual recipes used for generations in Africa, which I have added modern oils to to enhance the results. Shea Butter is an African resource & they have used it for thousands of years...we are just learning about the versatility of this "wonder butter"
My products are made BY ME, in my kitchen & are made to order to ensure freshness! I do not make any products other than Shea butter products...this is the main ingredient I was trained in & I feel there is no other NATURAL product out here that out shines or out performs the MANY health and skin benefits of Shea Butter! If you want HEALTHY, GLOWING, BALANCED, SMOOTH, SOFT & BLEMISH FREE SKIN....look no further....Welcome to Shea Butter...Welcome to Africa...Welcome to Afro*Scent*Ric!!
DIRECTIONS: apply to belly daily to PREVENT stretch marks...use as needed to help with complications during pregnancy....itchiness, irritation, dryness, cracking of skin, stretch marks, burning sensation or any other symptoms that may occur from stretching of the skin.
Can also be used anywhere else needing deep moisturization. Perfect for relief of swelling of feet or muscle aches..Shea butter is known to drain toxins from sore muscles & relieves areas affected by arthritis, joint pains, or other muscular aches...like BACKACHES, NECKACHES or sore legs..which happen during pregnancy.
*there are some belly balms out that include beeswax, but my balm is for moisturizing the skin & PREVENTING stretch marks...the only way to prevent stretch marks is by moisturizing the skin...beeswax blocks elements from absorbing into the skin. I do not know how that moisturizes...If you are looking for a beeswax based balm, my QUEEN NZINGHA SHIELDING BALM is available. My shielding balm protects the skin from elements & shields it from modern day radicals(uv rays, smog, dirt, smoke, etc.)...so if you are looking for PROTECTION from outside elements, look for my QUEEN NZINGHA SHIELDING BALM, but if you are looking for PREVENTION of stretch marks, RELIEF from itching, cracking, dry skin & INTENSE deep moisturization...you are looking in the right place!
