Our Butters

Natural Nerds Skincare takes great care in providing you with only the best naturally sourced butters from around the world. Read below for more information.

Unrefined Shea Butter - Shea butter has an excellent ability to penetrate the skin without clogging pores, allowing our skin to breathe. We use 100% organic unrefined shea butter directly from the Shea trees in Northern Ghana. The virgin butter is crushed manually and then machine pressed for maximum hygiene and purity. The butter is a beautiful light yellow colour due to its high vitamin content.

Shea butter can be used alone to benefit the skin and contains vitamins A, E and F.These are particularly helpful for damaged and dry skin either by sun or general pollution.

Benefits of Shea Butter: daily moisturiser, dry skin relief, dry scalp, blemishes and wrinkles, skin peeling, sunburn, skin wounds and cracks, stretch mark prevention and to curb scarring in skin.

Premium Cocoa Butter- Cocoa butter is a natural emollient moisturiser that is rich in vitamins and minerals. It is ideal for dry skin and is very high in anti-oxidents which makes it perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. 

Almond Butter - Almond butter is a wonderful hydrating butter which is moisturising and has natural emollient properties. The cold-pressed nature of butter-extraction ensures the natural composition of the almond remains intact and the butter is full of its natural nutrients when applied to the skin.
