In our passionate quest to unravel the wonders of nature's most beneficial ingredients, our journey this October continues. Every Monday, we unveil the intricate tapestry of another chosen ingredient from the heart of our lipstick formula.
Today, we sail to the verdant landscapes of West Africa, unearthing the rich secrets of Shea Butter.
Shea Butter: Nature's Luxurious Emollient
From the heart of the African savannah, where the Shea tree grows wild and unbridled, emerges the luxuriant Shea Butter. For millennia, indigenous tribes have recognized and revered this natural marvel. Women from various tribes would gather, hand-crack, and patiently churn the nuts to extract this velvety butter, ensuring their skin's protection from the sun's harsh UV rays.
Scientifically speaking, Shea Butter is an exceptional treasure. It boasts up to 60% fat, making it intensely moisturizing. Rich in stearic and oleic acids, it is known to boost the skin's natural collagen production. Its remarkable concentration of Vitamins A and E, both potent antioxidants, shield the lips from environmental stressors and free radicals.
But its magic doesn’t end there. Shea Butter contains lupeol cinnamate, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it perfect for soothing and conditioning irritated skin.
The Shea Butter in our lipsticks isn't just any Shea Butter. It's meticulously sourced to be purely organic, maintaining its rich nutrient profile. Our commitment is to both beauty and sustainability. Our chosen suppliers resonate with these ideals, valuing the integrity of every ingredient.
As we delve deeper into our formula, a harmonious symphony of ingredients, including Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, and Manuka Honey, emerges. Each component ensures that your lips receive nature’s finest care.
Join me next week as we spotlight another star ingredient, immersing ourselves further into the heart of natural beauty.
Until then, let the opulent touch of Shea Butter envelop your lips, making every moment with Madame Gabriela an indulgence.
