It is a great thing to make a product that helps women , but even better when that same product helps women to better support their families. Shea Yeleen is one of the few companies that pay shea butter cooperatives in Africa three or four more times more than other companies. This makes African women feel better about themselves and isn’t that what we are all striving for anyway.
It made me feel better to know that this product line helped women., but that isn’t what sold me. Opening the jar, I was immediately enraptured with this springy fragrance. It conjured up so many romantic notions of gardens and lace. Another great thing about this product is there is no animal testing . So many of products that I have used for years, I have sadly found out that they use animals for testing. This is not acceptable because of how I feel about dogs and cats. Everything is all natural. The fragrance wasn’t the best thing about the product. The body balm actually eased itching from summer maladies like eczema and bug bites. The skin moisturizing also slows down the aging process, regenerates skin cells, and improves elasticity. It also gave me a fresh feeling when I got out of the shower. My shower experience was further enhanced by the other Shea Yeleen product I received. With a smell guaranteed to wake up all your senses, i used the lemongrass peppermint shea soap. It lathered up like my favorite body wash. Another great thing, was it softened my skin enough to give me a great shave. The smell had a yummy citrusy fragrance. Never has a product done so much good and also been so good at the same time.
