DESCRIPTION

Formulated with a very high concentration of 25% shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, it forms a protective film for skin that is very dry or uncomfortable due to environmental aggressions (cold, air conditioning). With its ultra-rich texture, this balm melts into the hands and nails from the moment it is applied and massaged in. Enriched with allantoin, it helps to immediately soothe the skin, bringing comfort and softness. Used daily, it helps to protect hands from dryness.

Shea butter is a natural beauty balm, used by women in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since the 1980’s, L’OCCITANE has set up a sustainable and fair trade partnership with the women in Burkina Faso who produce it. To perpetuate this story with the women of this country, the L'OCCITANE Foundation gets involved for women's entrepreneurship supporting literacy, training and microcredit programs, as well as the development of companies created by women.

TIPS & TRICKS

For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day). As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week).

SHEA BUTTER

Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient which has been used for centuries by women in Sub-saharan Africa to nourish and protect their skin and hair. The international success of L’Occitane’s shea butter products can be shared with several thousand Burkinabé women, who are committed to developing a sustainable, fair trade shea butter supply chain.

  • Great travel product

    We take this great cream with us every time we travel to the desert and dry climates. The shea butter formula is incredibly moisturizing and keeps our skin from cracking when we use it. The formula can be a bit slick so it is best used at night.

  • Fantastic!

    Not just for my hands at all. Great for hands, elbows, feet and heels as well as arms, legs, heck anywhere at all. Would buy this by the vat. No greasy after feel. Just look and feel of healthy skin!

    I don't think I've bought a L'Occitane Shea Butter product that I have not liked. And no surprise, I love it! I got this size to keep it in my desk at work and use it all the time. It's perfectly creamy and not oily so I can put it on and go back to work and it's perfect. It squashes the dry Michigan winters and keeps our hands soft. Totally worth every penny.
