What We’re Loving: Pure Unrefined Shea Butter by Alaffia

August 4, 2023

Wellness Tools & Products Used By Our Staff

We’ve had so many requests for items and tools our providers love to use, we thought we would share a few with you each month.

We love this Pure Unrefined Shea Butter by ALAFFIA. This unscented version is great for hydrating dry skin. You don’t need much. Take a small amount and warm it up in your hands before massaging it into your target areas. We will often use this shea butter when addressing concerns with a patient’s feet because it’s a heavy moisturizer. If you have extra dry skin on your feet, you can massage generously into your feet before bedtime and then wear a light sock overnight. Your toes and heels will be buttery soft the next morning!

Another reason to like Alaffia, they are a cruelty free company that uses all natural ingredients. They support women led businesses, education, and maternal healthcare in West Africa.

This Intensive Repair Essential Oil Balm by Eucerin is our Clinical Director’s “go to” choice for dry cracked hands and cuticles that get washed and sanitized many MANY times per day. You can purchase this product in many pharmacies and drug stores or online at Amazon here.
