Why Shea Radiance Use Only Unrefined Shea Butter
Shea Radiance uses only unrefined shea butter as the base for all their products. Shea Radiance believes that skin care products should produce results and unrefined shea butter has been shown to be an effective healing balm. Shea Radiance's goal is to create products that are luxurious and effective. Studies conducted by the Journal of Oleo Science, Anti-Inflammatory and Chemopreventive effects of Triterpene Cinnamates and Acetates from Shea Fat, confirm the healing properties present in shea butter.
Unrefined shea butter is rich in properties that moisturize and heal the skin. Shea butter contains bioactives that include tocopherols, flavinoids and cathechins (similar to those found in green tea). Unrefined shea butter is rich in tripetenes which contain anti-inflammatory and protease inhibition properties. Shea butter also contains phytosterols which can improve skin metabolism and reduce inflammation.
Unrefined versus Refined Shea Butter
Unrefined shea butter contains a sizeable quantity of unsaponifiable fats, vitamins and other essential elements, which help cell regeneration and capillary circulation. Unrefined shea promotes the healing of small wounds, stretch marks, eczema, cracked and irritated skin and skin ulcers. It is said that unrefined shea provides some level of UV protection because it contains cinnamic acid. Unrefined shea butter has a natural, earthy and nutty scent which is great for the skin and has therapeutic effects.
Refined shea butter on the other hand is white and odorless. The refining process removes the natural scent and color, and unfortunately strips the natural shea butter of all its therapeutic properties. The process may involve the use of harsh chemicals such as sodium hydroxide. Refined shea butter may be aesthetically appealing, but lacks the true moisturizing, healing and nutritive properties of unrefined shea butter.
Best to use scrub in shower right after cleansing. Massage the scrub onto your skin, body and hands only.

Love the smell (goes great with the Andalou Naturals Kukui Cocoa body butter!) and seems to moisturize and exfoliate my skin nicely; could stand to have just a little more oil in it though - I just mixed in some of my coconut cream oil.
