The opinion of our sexologists
The contact between the skins is an essential component of erotic pleasure for two. A harmony of skins increases pleasure. While an unpleasant contact with the partner's skin can completely destroy the sensual encounter for two. This is especially the case when the skin is dry, rough, or irritated. Shea can significantly improve the situation and give you soft, silky skin. It is particularly recommended to maintain the sensitive skin of breasts and nipples.
We suggest that you use shea butter to prepare your skin for dating. You can induce your hands which will be softer for caresses. Put a little on your lips (especially in winter when they can be irritated) and even use it after shaving to avoid the "fire" of shaving. It is also useful after hair removal to soothe irritated skin.
Our suggestion : add a few shea butter nuts to your bath water. A thin invisible layer will settle on the body. Ideal to relax and get a feeling of well-being. When you get out of your bath, your skin will be very soft.
Shea butter has a preventive anti-stretch mark effect (it is not effective on already formed stretch marks). When dieting for weight loss or during pregnancy, apply shea butter to areas sensitive to weight loss and gain such as the thighs or the belly.
Karine shea butter can also be used for a sensual massage for two.
You can also use shea butter for your hair. It allows them to regain their luster when they have been damaged, especially in summer with the sun. Apply a root of shea butter from roots to ends in the evening before bedtime. Be careful not to put too much at the risk of having difficulty rinsing it afterwards. Then wrap a warm towel around your head and leave for 15 to 20 minutes. Finish by wiping off the excess product to avoid staining your pillow at bedtime. Shea will work overnight to allow the keratin in your hair to absorb it. The next day shampoo to remove the rest of the butter. You may have to repeat this operation. We advise you to carry out this shampoo with an Aleppo soap which you will make foam in your hands. If you don't have one, use a traditional organic shampoo.
Before the first use, it is advisable to apply shea butter to a small area of skin to test for a possible risk of allergy. Cases are extremely rare, however if redness or itching appears, immediately rinse the area with lukewarm water. If you have a tendency to allergies consult your doctor. Do not swallow.

Our EROS ® label (Ethics with producers - Respect for the environment - Controlled origin - Sexologically tested)
Like all our products, our Karine shea butter respects the principles of our EROS ® charter for environmental quality and fair trade with manufacturers.
Note that industrial shea butter is almost always of the "refined" type. This means that the pesticides and herbicides that may be used on shea trees have not disappeared after the refining process but are, on the contrary, more concentrated. In addition, after refining, sometimes carried out with potentially toxic solvents, the beneficial properties of shea are greatly reduced and sometimes even destroyed.
In addition, the large industries producing shea butter buy shea butter of very variable quality from African women who pick it. These industries set the criteria for (low) quality and the purchase price of shea kernels. This keeps the local populations in precariousness and takes away their traditional know-how in the preparation of shea butter. Conversely, Karine shea butter is produced from A to Z by traditional knowledge by choosing the best almonds and paying local producers decently.
