|Shea Body Butter|
Let me tell you the ingredients from my favorite night time cream BEFORE I realized what I was putting on my skin.
- Glycerin which is ok if it is plant based. Animal based has been researched to have cancer agents. It's called a "polyhydric alcohol" which is a substance that is extremely drying to the skin, which is used in lotion that is suppose to nourish our dry skin.
- Cetyl Alcohol and all alcohol is drying to the skin
- Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Ethylparaben these are parabens that are used to extend shelf life of products. They can cause many allergic reactions and skin rashes.
- Mineral Oil is a common ingredient in commercial lotions, skin care and baby products. Mineral Oil is not a natural ingredient it is a byproduct that is produced by man. In short this oil cannot be absorb by your skin. It clogs your pores which allows for moisture and bacteria to breed. Your skin can't breath and the end result will be skin irritation and acne.
