Most of us look for permanent solutions to stretchmark’s, scars, acne, uneven skin tones and aging. Bio oil promises us answers. To say that I have tried this product and not seen good results would be lying. Yet, I have seen the same results (if not better) with 100% Pure Unrefined (Grade A, Fairtrade certified) Shea butter. Here’s the deal…if you are looking for a drive through breakthrough, Bio oil works. At least it did for me. However, you might want to consider the long-term side effects; which could be negative.
The ancient Egyptian queen, Nefertiti, credited her beauty to shea butter. Today, walking along the aisles of drug stores and grocery departments one cannot help but notice the amount of cosmetics & general skin care products that contain shea butter as an “active” ingredient. While it may seem as though these products have a large quantity of shea butter, they don’t. Although this is what we are intended to think. Ingredients are listed in descending order of percentage, and quite often it is only a small fraction that’s present.
