Shea Butter Note

Our Shea Butter is unrefined and has not been bleached or deodorized. 

Pure unrefined shea butter has an earthy, nutty, smokey scent that ranges from mild to strong and can be quite pungent. Since our shea butter is a natural, unrefined product it retains its natural scent, color, and nutritional benefits. The scent and color of unrefined shea often vary from batch to batch. 

Read our Shea Butter Tutorial which explains the various types of shea butter as well as why we believe that the benefits of unrefined shea butter far outweigh the cons of its smokey, pungent scent. 

 

How to Use

Directions

  • Very concentrated, you will be surprised how far a tiny little dollop will go
  • Especially effective if used when skin is still warm and damp after bathing or showering
  • Our whipped butters are a preservative-free product, always use clean, dry hands to remove butter from the jar
  • Try a bamboo spoon  to scoop out our natural butters

NOTE:

If you enjoy the application "feeling" of a lotion better than a cream, try massaging our rich Whipped Butters into warm, wet skin after a bath or shower. Wait a few moments and gently pat dry. (Do not rub the skin dry!)

Since a lotion is just a lot of water mixed with oils, a rich and creamy natural butter on warm wet skin will have a similar feel.

FAQs

Remember, the skin is the body's largest organ
and it needs to breathe as part of its
important role in maintaining overall health!

Natural

Well, first of all, it's an all-natural product. Commercial lotions are NOT. Our Whipped Shea Butters only contain the ingredients that they need. Creams and lotions created in a lab often clog pores, aggravate acne, trigger allergic reactions, and make skin feels heavy and greasy. 

The organic oils and butters we use do NOT contain petroleum based chemicals (Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Paraffin), chemical emulsifiers (DEA, MEA, TEA), chemical preservatives (Parabens, Urea),  Propylene Glycol, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances. 

No Preservatives

Lotions have a very high water content. Once water is added to make a lotion, it is almost impossible to create an all natural product and still keep the bacteria and mold out. 

No Alcohol or Petroleum Ingredients

Natural Organic Skin Care No PreservativesHave you ever noticed that when you use your body lotion your skin never stays moist and you find yourself going back to the lotion bottle over and over? 

Look at the ingredients. Often times water is the main ingredient. Commercial lotions often contain isopropyl alcohol and/or mineral oil. Both of these actually are very drying to your skin. The alcohol gives a temporary sense of coolness due to evaporation.

Mineral oil is found in lotions, soaps, baby oil, cosmetics, and motor oil. Mineral oil is a clear, liquid oil with no scent and will not spoil. It is very inexpensive because it is produced as a byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil. It is great for oiling your wooden cutting boards--but not your skin. Mineral oil does not penetrate to soften.  It is difficult to absorb, coats your skin and clogs the pores. If you would like to have healthy skin, stay away from mineral oils, animal fat, petroleum, and synthetic oil based skincare. 

No Propylene Glycol

Commercial creams and lotion often contain propylene glycol, which acts as a “humectant, preservative or stabilizer. Commercial skin-care products are stored and shipped and must have a very long shelf-life. Propylene glycol helps the fragrance, consistency and product appearance to remain attractive throughout its long life. 

While the FDA has categorized propylene glycol as "Generally Recognized as Safe," and some say that 

Your Natural Cream Has So Many Uses

We know that natural body butters make great moisturizing body creams. But here are some other ways we have used these balms and butters:

  • Get rid of those cracked heels 
  • Gently massage into very dry areas on your face
  • Soothe and smooth skin after shaving
  • Add a dollop to your hot bath water instead of using synthetic bath oils
  • Massage some into your cuticles to soften them
  • Massage into your lips for a great all natural lip balm

 

We do not use synthetic stabilizers or waxes, so our delicate natural products packaged in glass jars and metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes. 

While shipping during warm weather seasons presents a real challenge to our natural skin care company, we accept the challenge in order to maintain our standard of natural and nourishing skin care. We hope you agree. 

Natural Skin CareDuring warm weather, products may soften or even melt as they sit in warm mail trucks, mailboxes, or on front porches.

The quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting.

On sunny or warm days, BEFORE opening the jars or tins, place the items in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow them to harden, just in case they have melted in transit. If you open items, especially those in tins, to check if melting has occurred, they may spill and make a mess!

 

What To Do About Melting

Cream Deodorants: If you think that your balm-like deodorant is melted or runny, BEFORE opening the jar, pop it in the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes. As it begins to harden give it a stir (so that the solids do not sink to the bottom) and place it back in the freezer until firm! 

Sometimes a cream deodorant can melt during warm transit and then slowly resolidify before you receive it. This melting and slow cooling can result in a grainy feeling. If your deodorant feels grainy, simply melt it, mix thoroughly, and place it in the refrigerator until solid.

Since the stick deodorant are made with more beeswax, they are less sensitive to an increase in outside temperature

Natural Organic Whipped Body Butter Dry Skin

 

Whipped Body Butters: Place a melted body butter in the refrigerator until firm.

Our hand-whipped process adds tiny air bubbles that increase the volume, just like whipping cream. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles collapse and the volume is decreased.

So, although the jar was filled to the top initially, there will be less volume in the container (since it has deflated) and the container may actually look half full.

After cooling a melted Whipped Butter will be the consistency of our body balm and is still a great moisturizer.

 

If a Sugar Scrub melts, the oil may separate out a bit. Give it a good mix and place it in the refrigerator for about 10 to 15 minutes. As it begins to harden up give it another stir to disperse the sugars and place it back in the refrigerator. Once it's solidified and mixed it will be great to use! Again because it is a whipped product, the container may have less volume when the whipped butters melt.

What Are Pure Essential Oils?

Natural Essential Oil Skin Care

Have you ever enjoyed the scent of a fragrant flower or herb? The fragrance comes from potent, aromatic compounds called essential oils.

These natural compounds are found in the flowers, stems, seeds, bark, roots, fruits, and other parts of plants. It often requires several pounds of a plant to produce a single bottle of essential oil.

Essential oils not only give plants their unique scents but also help lure plant pollinators and protect plants from insects and other predators.

 

 

Pure Essential Oil Skin Care

 

The chemical composition of essential oils may provide valuable psychological and physical aromatherapeutic benefits for some people. 

It is important to note that to be a true essential oil, the oil must be isolated from the plant material by physical means only.

Essential oils are NEVER extracted using solvents.

Although synthetic fragrances or "nature identical" oils are available at a much lower cost, only natural plant essential oils will provide the botanical benefits.

 

Be careful that the essential oil-containing products you purchase for topical use are mixed with the correct medium.

Essential oils are soluble (dissolve) in alcohol and carrier oils. However, they are insoluble (do not dissolve) in water or water-based liquids like hydrosols, milk, aloe, or even witch hazel (which contains a small amount of alcohol). 

When mixed with a water-based ingredient the molecules of the essential oil will float in tiny droplets on the surface (think of oil droplets on the surface of water). Those droplets can behave like undiluted essential oils on your skin and cause irritation. 

 

What Are Essential Oils? (Much more detail)

Go to our Blog Pages and click "Essential Oils" in the category section on the left to read a lot more information on essential oils. 

If you are pregnant or under a doctor's care for any medical condition, please consult your healthcare provider before using essential oils.

Pregnancy & Children: We do not provide information on the safety of essential oils during Pregnancy or for use in Children because the available information is very ambiguous and often contradictory. If you’re interested in using essential oils during pregnancy or with young children please do your own research and consult your doctor, midwife, or health care professional before use.

At Chagrin Valley we obviously do not test our finished products on animals (other than human volunteers), but what about the raw materials, the ingredients we use? Many products display labels claiming that their finished product is ‘not tested on animals’ but this does not guarantee that the product ingredients are actually free from animal testing.

The CCIC Standard is a pledge that a company makes to remove animal testing from all stages of product development. Our pledge to buy ingredieCruelty Free Natural Skin Carents that are cruelty-free is integrated into the purchase order contract for all of our suppliers.

Personal care products displaying the “real” Leaping Bunny logo are certified ‘cruelty-free' using the internationally recognized Humane Cosmetics Standards. These rigorous standards require that no animal testing is performed or authorized for finished products or ingredients in any stage of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date. All Leaping Bunny companies are subject to independent audits and pledge commitments are renewed on an annual basis.

Why Natural Skin Care Products Melt In Hot Weather

July 15, 2015

One of my biggest challenges as a formulator of natural skincare products is controlling the effect of the outside temperature.

Why We Use Only Real Plant Essential Oils?

The synergistic composition of essential oils cannot be recreated in a laboratory. Essential oils are derived from real plant material.

Why We Believe In Natural, Organic Skin Care

March 28, 2014

We believe in natural and organic ingredients because we manufacture and sell products that cater to the largest organ in the human body—the Skin. No skincare product, whether natural, organic or conventional can “cure” aging. Aging is a fact of life, not a condition that needs to be (or can be) cured by skincare products. So, why use organic skincare? My answer—Why Not!
