Several years ago I started using shea butter exclusively as a moisturizer. When she was younger, my daughter had eczema and regular lotions did not help her skin. Prescription lotions were too strong and irritated rather than healed her skin. I started using shea butter on her skin as well. I liked the fact that it was all natural, but I did find it a little labor intensive. Anyone who’s used shea butter knows that it has to be softened to spread effectively. I started reading about the benefits of coconut oil and wanted to incorporate it into my skincare regimen as well as my diet. Unlike shea butter, coconut oil melts really easily and can be messy to use. I decided to combine the two together to create a moisturizer that was the best of both worlds. The scent profiles came about through the influence and assistance of my daughter and my nephews.
