Shea Terra Organics for All Over Body
I remember back in the 80’s going to punk rock shows and seeing the straight edge guys with the big Sharpie X’s across the back of each hand. And this wasn’t at one show here or there, this was at every show and come to find out, those big X’s graced the back of their hands every day. I didn’t think of it until recently but just think of that ink being absorbed into their skin on a daily basis. What’s even in a Sharpie? And now I come to this thought – whatever you put on your skin goes into your system so don’t you want to make it the best it can be?
One I know that falls into the all-around-safe category is SHEA TERRA’s Cape Aloe Soothing Shea Butter Crème ($22/9oz @ walgreens.com). I simply love this line and here’s why I’m jumping on this bandwagon. This product is made with 30% organic Shea Butter and 20% Cape aloe. What is Cape aloe? It’s a medicinal herb from South Africa and used to treat many different ailments but also for its anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. I wonder why I have never heard of this herb until now? Anyway, not only can this one be used as a straight up super body moisturizer but they also tout it as useful for jellyfish stings, minor cuts, and even sun burns.
