Does your skin need some love? The weather tends to do a number on our precious skin. In the winter months, it gets hit by that dry cold air. In the summer, you have to protect it from the sun.

Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter is a product I found at my local health food centre a while ago. It was recommended to me by the staff for my big kid who has temperamental skin. With mild eczema that tends to flare up from time to time, I picked up the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter and hoped for the best.


Product Review: Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter

thingsthatwedo.com - mother africa cocoa shea butterHere is the list of ingredients that went into the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter: naturally grown pure shea butter, pure cocoa butter.

That’s it. Two ingredients.

Yep, there is nothing else I can say.

Tell me, when was the last time YOUR cream could do that?


Product Test: is the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter any good?

thingsthatwedo.com - mother africa cocoa shea butterAt the time of this post, we’ve used the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter for a good 5 months if not more.

First things first, Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter is not your average skin cream. It comes in this really cool shell and it looks like one solid chunk of mass. We usually scoop out a small chunk of Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter and rub it quickly between our hands. When it first comes out, it looks thick and impossible to use. Give it a few rubs and it liquefies. Rub it on your skin and it leaves a nice thick protective coating.

thingsthatwedo.com - mother africa cocoa shea butterYes, I said thick but I should clarify. You know that feeling you get after you gunk yourself with sunscreen? Well, it’s not like that but it’s certainly not a thin coating like some watery skin lotion. After all, it’s really cocoa butter and shea butter so you should expect that it would leave a noticeable yet nourishing coat of protection on your skin. You can see the image of my finger on the right. That’s how the cream is sitting on my skin prior to me rubbing it in. It absorbs relatively quickly but it is noticeable on  your skin.

My kid doesn’t mind the feeling of the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter on her skin and she says it smells really good. To date, her skin seems to be responding quite well to it. Her skin is smooth and we seem to be keeping the eczema at bay which may/not be attributed to the cream given all the other environmental and dietary factors. However, there’s no denying that her skin looks a million times better than it did before we started using Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter.

I decide to visit their website and learned a few things about shea butter that I never knew before including the fact that it’s got oleic acid (ie. omega 9), stearic acid, and linoleic acid, vitamin A, E, and F (I didn’t even know vitamin F existed!). According to their website, shea butter can actually help to provide relief for dry skin to different skin conditions. Turns out cocoa butter is equally awesome with vitamins A, C, and E and anti-oxidants!


Verdict:

thingsthatwedo.com - mother africa cocoa shea butterWell, after reading all of that goodness from the Mother Africa Imports website and based on my own experiences in using their cocoa and shea butter cream, I’ve decided this product is a keeper. Although it’s pricey, the Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter also lasts for a very long time because a little goes a very long way. Would I buy it again?

Yep!

So, if you can find Mother Africa Imports Cocoa Shea Butter near you, why not give it a try?
