I recently received samples of Shea Moisture Hair Products at a recent Organic Spa Magazine Wellness Event. I’ve been a fan of the brand ever since I purchased their Lavendar & Wild Orchid Hand and Body Scrub. The brand is a family business that began in Sierra Leone in 1912 by founder Richelieu Dennis’s grandmother Sofi Tucker who sold her own handcrafted shea butter soaps. I love how their ingredients are ethically sourced. Their shea butter is sourced from seven women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana and the company invests in over 2500 women entrepreneurs. Shea Moisture products are made with natural and certified organic ingredients, not tested on animals and do not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, petroleum or DEA.
The African Black Soap Dandruff Control Shampoo is a sulfate-free shampoo made with natural and certified organic ingredients that gently cleanses and kills bacteria and moisturizes reducing dry, itchy and flaking scalp. The shampoo had a pleasant scent and left my scalp feeling clean and I noticed less dandruff after a few washes.
I also received a sample of the Shea Moisture Zanzibar Marine Complex Replenish and Rejuvenate Hand Cream. I loved how thick and creamy it was, and really absorbed into my skin without feeling sticky. Made with a blend of oils and marine extracts including Carrageenan (Red Algae), the cream provides all-day hydration to replenish and protect natural moisture reserves. 10% of sales go to Community Commerce Initiatives to fight poverty.
