Shea Innocence - Handmade Natural Products (Body Butters and Scented Soy Wax Candles)

One of the most exciting things about my blog is the opportunity it gives me to discover new brands. One such brand is UK-based Shea Innocence, who specialise in an all-natural range of skincare and body care products made using Shea butter and other plant based oils. I have been using their body butters for a while now and have fallen in love with them. So, its but natural that I wanted to spread the word about this new brand. I think their products will catch your attention like they did mine.

Shea Innocence are a small family run business, specialising in handmade natural products including body butters, hair care and scented soy wax candles. As you must have guessed from their name, Shea butter is the main ingredient of all their products. Extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, Shea butter is an extremely gentle and effective moisturiser that melts upon contact with the skin. As the brand is relatively new, the product range is small, with only 4 different types of body butters and some beautifully scented candles to try out. But everything is handmade and free from parabens, phthalates, sulphates and artificial colours.

The four skincare products from Shea Innocence are:
- Mandarin Body Butter : Baby & Child
- Unscented Body Butter : Mum & Baby
- Body Butter with Lavender & Orange
- Triple Butter Whip : Mango, Grapefruit & Orange
All the body butters are 100ml, priced at £10.95 each.

Now we all know that Shea butter is an excellent, multi-purpose ingredient which provides improvement if you have dry skin, rough skin, itching, skin cracks or even more severe skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It is super-rich yet gentle on the skin and offers impressive hydration. All of Shea Innocence's four skincare products use Shea butter as the foundation ingredient. They vary only in terms of the other essential oils used.

The Unscented body butter is recommended for expectant mums to use on their baby bump and also for new mums after the birth of their child. This body butter also contains Rosehip oil and cocoa butter and can help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The Mandarin Baby and Child body butter is suitable for the delicate skins of little ones. It contains sweet almond oil, camellia seed oil, olive oil and is lightly scented with mandarin essential oil. The body butter is suitable for the most sensitive of skins and offers superb nourishment to dry skin. I have been using this on my dry legs and love it. The texture is very light and it just melts away when you start working it into your skin. I love the delicate fragrance as well.

The Lavender and Orange body butter also smells wonderful - the scent of Lavender is more prominent that Orange but it is such a soothing and relaxing scent - perfect for use before bedtime. As with the other body butters, you need very little of the product and it melts on contact with skin. Once absorbed it leaves the skin nourished and soft. My favourite of the four body butters has been the Triple Butter Whip. In addition to Shea butter it also contains Cocoa butter and Mango Seed butter; with the three different types of butters being hand-whipped to produce a extremely nourishing product. The texture of the triple butter whip is slightly crumbly but once you start rubbing it into the skin, it melts beautifully just like the other body butters. Because this product is richer than the others, I use it for extremely dry areas like my knees and elbows. Even this is perfect as a night time treat for my skin.

Overall, I loved all the four body butters. They are high quality, 100% natural and the fragrances are amazing. And most importantly they leave my skin nourished. Highly recommended if you have dry skin.

I also received two of Shea Innocence's scented candle tins. Made from pure soy wax and scented with high quality fragrance oils and essential oils, these candle tins are hand poured in Shea Innocence's workshop. The candle tins have an approximate burn time of 20 hours and are perfect for travel though they can be used at home as well. There are six candle fragrances cuurently available: Mocha Vanilla, Champagne & Berries, English Rose Garden, Apple, Guava & Gooseberry, Fig & Cassis Mandarin and Lavender & Jasmine. I have tried Mocha Vanilla and Lavender & Jasmine and both are lovely. The scents are absolutely beautiful, not too overpowering but enough to scent a small room. The fragrances don't smell artificial or sickly - they are very natural.
