1. shea butter
Quality: organic, refined
Our popular Shea Cream contains one thing above all: precious organic shea butter, which we source from women's cooperatives in Burkina Faso and Ghana. Our supplier knows the women personally and guarantees the cooperatives fair purchase prices. The shea butter gives the cream its consistency and protects the skin from moisture loss. Pure shea butter is quite solid (similar to honey), but becomes liquid at body temperature. Incidentally, this also explains why the consistency of your cream can change with temperature fluctuations. It can become more liquid or more solid, and in the process, shea butter can crystallize. However, this does not affect the quality of the product.
2. jojoba oil
Quality: organic, cold pressed
Jojoba oil is a light oil that ideally complements shea butter and takes away its heaviness. It absorbs well, does not seal the skin and protects against moisture loss. Jojoba oil is an oxidatively very stable oil. It keeps other oils from becoming rancid (in the product and on the skin), which is very important for your skin and thus protects against the formation of free radicals. Argan oil (organic): has a balanced composition of fatty acids and supports the regeneration of the skin barrier.
3. argan oil
Quality: organic, cold pressed
Argan oil is called the gold of Morocco. Rightly so, because the oil impresses with its balanced composition of fatty acids. It is predestined for rough, dry and demanding skin. It has a smoothing effect and soothes itching.
4. vitamin E
Quality: non GMO, from soya
Vitamin E acts as a free radical scavenger.
5. neroli essential oil
Quality: organic, steam distillation of the flowers
Neroli oil is one of the most valuable essential oils and is extracted from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree. We use the precious Neroli because of its good skin compatibility and the fresh-tender-sweet-tart scent.

Good to know
* Linalool, limonene, farnesol and geraniol are natural components of neroli essential oil. Relevant for people with allergies.
Essential oils are extracted from flowers and plant parts. They combine the concentrated power of plants and have various positive and negative effects in addition to fragrance. People with intolerances to certain plants often react to the corresponding essential oils as well. A single essential oil consists of up to 200 chemical components - some of which can have an allergenic effect. Therefore, the EU has defined 26 allergenic components. These must always be listed separately in the overview of ingredients (INCI) and allow people with allergies to recognize that certain products should be avoided.
