For centuries, Shea Butter has improved the lives and the skin of those in the region of Ghana, South Africa. This miracle cream has a consistency that is similar to Coco Butter, but Shea Butter contains copious amounts of vitamins A and E along with many anti-oxidant compounds. This amazing cream is the result of a multi-step process, which extracts the oils from the nut of the Shea Fruit. This involves cracking, boiling, roasting, and grinding the Shea Nut until only oils remain.

Shea Butter has a variety of uses, both cosmetic and medicinal. Regular use of Shea Butter will result in softer, smoother, and more refined looking skin. It is also useful for relieving the skin of many ailments including stretch marks, itchy patches, flaking skin, wrinkles, frostbite, eczema and more. It also moisturizes hair.

Premium shea butter is beige, creamy, and solid. It melts easily and is readily absorbed into the skin. At room temperature, Shea Butter spreads smoothly and easily, much like other butter. Consumers should beware of substitutes and Shea Butters altered with colors or fragrances. These products, typically labeled as Shea Butter, will not have the same healing results as pure premium Shea Butter. To be certain of the quality and purity of Shea Butter, look for the seal of The American Shea Butter Institute. The Institute assures Shea Butter’s quality and fair trade practices in the production of Shea Butter.

EuGenia Shea is a company, which is consistent with its quality production of Shea Butter and its fair trade practices. The company was inspired by Eugenia Akuete, an acclaimed Shea Butter expert and former president of the Global Shea Alliance. The words Eu-Genia translate to mean ‘origin of goodness’ and are an appropriate name for this company.

EuGenia Shea creates their pure Shea Butter products from Ghanaian Shea grown and harvested by farmers who are paid sustainable wages and use environmentally friendly techniques. EuGenia Shea is proud of their commitment to ethical production practices and donates 15% of their profits back to their employees in the form of an educational fund.

Not all Shea Butter is created equal; take the time to be sure the product is quality and the health benefits will be the best reward.

Though commonly known and practiced today, some forms of medicine have existed for hundreds of years. Chiropractic medicine, for example, has evidence supporting its establishment that dates back to the 17th century. Today, the practice is widely sought after and practiced each day, and has assisted people in overcoming painful conditions that affect the back, hips, and legs.

Chiropractic medicine is concerned with the treatment of disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system. While specifically concerned with the spine, this practice also works to alleviate conditions that affect the overall health of the nervous system.
