I have been a long-time fan of shea butter, even using it in it's raw form without scented oils or being whipped. It is so insanely good for your skin. When I was pregnant, all of my skin itched, especially my stomach and back as they stretched. I slathered shea butter on every day after a shower. I received this shea butter as a gift and I absolutely loved it. It smells heavenly - orange and vanilla is a great combination. The texture is perfect - it glides on your skin and melts as it is readily absorbed. I went through the jar fairly quickly, and was going to buy more until I saw the price. Wow! It is expensive for that little jar. Quality ingredients and truly heavenly shea butter, but I couldn't afford it at the rate I was using it. In the end I did not have one stretch mark, whether that is by luck and genes, or by keeping my skin moisturized, I don't know. It most definitely helped with the itching.
