Great natural product for extremely dry skin
This product was really a special experience, as I am aware of the soil brand (aromatherapy range). I am impressed with the range being a local one, organic and pure ingredients and overall ethos of the brand, with the bonus of my favourite essential oil which is lavender. I loved the simplistic packaging being very easy and minimalistic, and as per package environmentally friendly! Opening up the tub was definitely sheer bliss! The product inside, thick and creamy, gorgeously scented by nature.
Being crazy about coconut oil I have found very few shortfalls in using it. So, after some brief reading on Shea butter, I decided to put my Soil Shea Butter to the test!
My major problem with my skin is some small atopic areas on my body, and then some deep cracks on the heel of my foot.
I used Soil Shea Butter instead of coconut oil on atopic areas with the following results. It absorbed well, was nice, rich and creamy. The result was that my skin felt soft, hydrated and moisturised, with the atopic skin more even and balanced.
My experience from using the Soil Shea butter on my feet, in conjunction with combined foot care was also a positive one. I incorporated the product with a foot soak, exfoliating, and good quality heel file. The applied layer of the Shea Butter directly on my foot absorbed well and worn under socks overnight, my feet felt softened and moisturised, hence I found the product very effective.
The product worked really well as a massage cream, as the lavender does aid calmness and relaxation. It worked effectively on my spouse, as well as my kids with sensitive skin, without any reactions to the product. What was great was that the concentration of aromatherapy oil in the Shea Butter was very balanced.
I love the product itself, scent, quality ingredients, packaging! Lusting over my beautiful, soft, moisturized skin and crushing over trying some more of soil bath and body products as I first impressions was a really lasting one!
The price seems a bit expensive for the volume of the Shea Butter compared to a good quality coconut oil, but definitely worthwhile for special areas, as it both complements and supplements the benefit of coconut oil. The effectiveness and inclusive quality lavender oil make the product value for money.
I am a little disappointed that there are not many suppliers in my region, but the website was fairly easy to use with a fairly standard delivery policy.
Great organic product for anyone, suitable for all ages, especially effective for dry skin of atopic skin conditions, safe for sensitive skin, and a definite indulgence!
