I’ve made it my mission to try every natural skin care line I possibly can this year. One of my recent discoveries is Shea Terra Organics. Tammie Umbel, founder and CEO of Shea Terra Organics created the brand to provide sustainable opportunities for impoverished communities, without causing environmental harm. Shea Terra Organics sources ingredients from women’s cooperatives, wildlife conservation groups, and non-profit community projects. You’ll find many of Africa’s natural beauty secrets in the beautiful products from Shea Terra.
Here’s a list of things you won’t find in any of the brand’s products: animal testing, parabens, SLS, gluten, soy, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, phthalates, and more. The products I tried are gentle, effective, and truly a pleasure to use.
I have been testing a few of the products out, and have loved them all!
Mango 33% Shea Soap – This is my favorite of the bunch. It can be hard to find a moisturizing bar soap that cleans well and is gentle. This bar ticks all those boxes, and smells good enough to eat as a bonus! I’m ordering more of these bars because I don’t ever want to be out. They also work really well for shaving your legs!
Argan & Olive Nourishing Clementine 2-in-1 Body Scrub – This scrub is really unique in that it stays scrubby, and the scrub doesn’t dissolve too quickly like most natural exfoliants. It also doesn’t sting my dry skin like a salt scrub. The Clementine scent is bright and refreshing.
African Black Soap Body Wash in Lemongrass – Since I am not a lemongrass fan and don’t currently have any body acne I passed this onto my teen son. He really likes it, and I’ve noticed his back is looking clearer.
Shea Nilotik 20% Daily Lotion in Marrakesh Menthe-Vanilla – I LOVE this body moisturizer so much. It is super thick and moisturizing, but it doesn’t leave my skin greasy. The minty vanilla scent smells like peppermint stick ice cream, and is such a treat! I’ve noticed sometimes when I use it my skin has a cooling sensation, and it’s quite invigorating.
Moroccan Rose Water Shea Butter Hand Creme – This 30% shea butter creme manages to be ridiculously thick and luxurious without being greasy. I can use this lightly rose scented creme during the day without leaving paw prints everywhere. I love this for cuticles and feet too.
