Comments about Out of Africa Organic Shea Butter Complexion Bar (with Milk Proteins):
I picked this soap up the other day because of its intriguing label. With it's lovely giraffe silhouette in a golden sunset, this **Out of Africa Organic Shea Butter Complexion Bar** had an even more valuable reason for me purchasing it, besides its wonderful ingredients.
Did you know that **each bar purchase** gives a **5 cent contribution to help provide education** to **children in West Africa**? And that the **Unrefined 20% Shea Butte**r used in this bar, which is from Benin, West Africa also provides jobs and helps support several women's co-operatives in Democratic Benin? Shea Butter is grown there, and its production also supports a ground breaking project for school children to help support education and local enterprises. I like that **every time that I use this bar, I am being reminded that my purchase has made a difference for others less fortunate**.
This Organic 20% Unrefined Shea Butter Complexion Bar is wonderful to use. It lathers quickly, its creamy emollience spreads fast, and washes off with no soapy, tight feeling left behind. It smells wonderfully clean and refreshing. It contains **20% Unrefined Shea Butter**, while most products only contain under **1-2% refined** (**processe**d) Shea Butter. This Shea Butter is the real stuff. It is as it comes from Nature, with minimal processing to keep its remarkable emollient properties intact.
**Shea Butter** has a history of use in Africa. With its hot sun beating down relentlessly, the protection of one's skin from the environment is very important. It is traditionally used for **protecting skin** against **UV light**. It also is used for **reducing inflammation**, **stretch marks**, **wrinkles, dry skin, and irritated skin**. That is why you see Shea Butter in many skin care products. I think that this bar contains some of the highest Unrefined Shea Butter in a Shea Butter product. Most of the Shea Butter will have been refined before it reaches the consumer. But, this is not, and "Out of Africa" is proud to prominently state that on its label. This bar is manufactured in Benin, W. Africa, with ingredients (Shea Butter) also produced there, and it contributes to valuable and "Green" causes, because of it.
**Out of Africa Shea Butter Complexion Soap last 50%** longer than the traditional bar soap. It is great for your skin because it helps **restore and maintain the skin's elasticity and tone**. In addition, it is **rich in Vitamin A, E, F** and has a **high fatty acid content to help skin stay supple**, **soft, and nourished**. It also **contains regenerative properties** for the skin. There are no artificial colors, no animal testing, and it's a pure vegetable, biodegradable product made from nature and sustainable. Benin produces this shea butter and it is grown, sustainable, and contributes to a better economy for the nation by employing many villages.
**INGREDIENTS**: Organic Shea Butter, Palm Kernel Oil, Olive Oil, Honey, Milk Proteins, Essential Oil, Purified Water
**MY OPINION**: Everytime I wash my face with this creamy, emollient **Out of Africa Shea Butter** **Soap**, I think of the wonderful things that it is doing for my skin, and more importantly, how my purchase helps contribute to Benin's progress as a nation.
Sometimes, you look at yourself, and you really see how your "one small step" is the beginning of many "right steps" with others, in a righteous direction. The Democratic nation of Benin says, **"A Hovana Ka Ka"** Thank-You.
