FAQ: How does Aloe Vera handle inflammation on the skin?
Answer: Aloe Vera contains two hormones, Auxin and Gibberellins. These hormones support anti-inflammatory action, helping to prevent blistering and itchiness, as well as providing support for wound healing. Gibberellin also behaves as a growth hormone stimulating new cell growth in the skin, helping the skin to heal more rapidly with less scarring. Aloe acts as a protective layer at the epithelial level of the skin, helping to replenish moisture naturally and prevent an inflammation response to harsh conditions.
FAQ: Why does it make a difference what kind of Shea butter is used?
Answer: There are many different types of Shea butter. Depending on how the Shea butter is extracted from the nuts will determine the quality as refined or unrefined. It is in your best interest to choose the unrefined organic Shea butter. Refined Shea butter is extracted via a chemical process (utilizing hexane) which involves bleaching, overheating and deodorizing. Shea butter loses its protecting, deep moisturizing, anti-aging and healing properties when it is heavily chemically processed. SHEA LOVE Naturals uses only unrefined raw organic Shea butter. Unrefined raw Shea butter is extracted by a manual or mechanical process yielding a golden to light ivory color with a mild, smokey, nutty scent. Without the chemical "wash" unrefined raw organic Shea butter retains all its original healing qualities, as a super moisturizing, anti-aging healing agent. Our products use only unrefined, raw, organic, Fair Trade Shea butter. Experience the difference!

FAQ: What makes Coconut oil so beneficial for the skin?
Answer: So we can understand what the benefits of Coconut oil are for the skin lets look at the constituents of Coconut oil and their respective qualities that make them useful in protecting and repairing skin. Coconut oil is rich in proteins like the coconuts themselves. Cellular health and tissue repair require a healthy flow of proteins in order to replace damaged cells at an optimum rate, keeping your skin renewed and rejuvenated. Coconut oil is rich in saturated fats which help to retain moisture content in the skin, keeping your skin supple and smooth, helping to eliminate dryness. Coconut oil contains Capric/Caprylic/Lauric acid. These fatty acids have strong anti-microbial, as well as powerful disinfectant properties. Coconut oil acts as a protectant against microbial infections that could enter through the pores or an open wound. Coconut oil also contains about 0.1 mg of Vit E per 100 grams of oil which is an additional source of protection preventing premature aging and general wear and tear on the skin.
