I am hooked on the SheaMoisture Indian Hemp & Shea Butter soap. It really is a must have for sensitive skin. All 3 of my kdis have sensitive skin just like me and the youngest hast the most sensitive skin by far. If you even use regular soap on his skin, he is left with little bumps and dry itchy skin.
So I am always on the lookout for natural and affordable products to use on my kids. I have been using this soap on my kids for over 2 weeks and after the first few days my youngest son’s skin was back to soft velvety skin no bumps or dryness. This all-natural, hypoallergenic soap is great for sensitive skin and will relieve, soothe and moisturize while clearing stubborn inflammation. I love how well it lathers and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry or coated just soft, smooth and clean.
SheaMoisture and CVS have teamed up to launch two “first aid” medicated soaps from SheaMoisture, a leading mass market natural beauty brand. Starting in late 2013/early 2014, 6,000 CVS stores will carry the two new hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested cleansing bars aimed at relieving eczema, psoriasis and inflammation-prone skin. The soaps won’t be available in the beauty section of the stores, but in the first aid section.
The soaps include:
- African Black Soap Eczema & Psoriasis Therapy Medicated Soap – Made using a proprietary blend of African Black Soap and certified organic Shea Butter, the soap is clinically proven to relieve symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. It’s made in a traditional way, just as it’s been done for centuries in Africa. Leaves, cocoa pods, shea tree bark and plantains are burned to an ash, which gives the soap its naturally black color, with coconut oil and shea butter, combined to the mix. Other key ingredients include Aloe Vera, Lemon Balm, Sea Wrack, and Gotu Kola.
- Indian Hemp & Shea Butter Inflammation Therapy Medicated Soap – This moisturizing bar soap is clinically proven to calm inflamed and irritated skin. It features a proprietary blend of Hemp Oil and certified organic Shea Butter — two ingredients known to moisturize skin and reduce inflammation. Specially formulated with Calendula Extract (a natural anti-inflammatory), Neem Oil (used in Ayurvedic medicine for its antifungal benefits) and Tea Tree Oil (reduces redness and has natural antibacterial properties).
The high percentage of fatty acid-rich Shea Butter in both soaps is ethically sourced from seven women’s coops in Northern Ghana. SheaMoisture works directly with the women to pay them above market prices for their shea butter. Each five ounce bar soap has a suggested retail price of $4.99.
