Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here ???
How are You, I hope You are all well? Today I am coming at You with first impressions of Fushi new launches – please step forward Shea Cocoa Butter, Shea Light, Amla Juice, Nootropic Brain Blend & Adaptogen Energy Blend supplements. I have reviewed some other Fushi products here if you want to check it out?
It all started with the shea butter. That’s basically it what my husband uses for the skincare, so when he ran out, I repurchased this awesome raw, organic and handmade Fushi shea butter. Then I learned Fushi came out with two more versions of it and I had to know more 🙂 I simply love the fact that many if not all products are certified organic (Soil Association, no less!), vegan, cruelty free, biodynamic, fair trade, ethically sourced and more. I reached out to the brand, and as we have worked together before, they gladly let me test their new releases for the review purposes. This post is going to be new impressions kind of post, but I will follow up with the more in depth posts (or videos) later. Let’s look into the new products Fushi released?
SHEA COCOA BUTTER
Delicious blend of natural body butters
• 65% shea butter & 35% cocoa butter
• Rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants
• Protects and combats dry skin
• Promotes skin health and radiance
The official blurb:
“The decadent properties of organic cocoa butter along with the renowned benefits of shea inspired us to create a soft butter blend combining both of these wonderful skin nourishing butters. And the result is a luxurious and intensely hydrating, one of a kind, unique shea cocoa body butter.
Pure cocoa butter is extracted from the richly nutritious cocoa bean, and offers a softer texture, known for its rich fatty acid content and natural phytochemicals that help with skin elasticity and healing the appearance of stretched skin. Shea butter works similarly to cocoa butter and provides deep moisturisation to very dry skin. It is rich in Oleic and Linoleic acids that nourish the skin and keep it beautifully hydrated. It is also rich in vitamins A, E and F that help to protect and promote youthful looking skin.
Fushi’s organic Shea butter enhanced with cocoa butter offers a double benefit of these luscious skin caring emollients that can be used for dry skin, cracked heels, stretch marks, face and body moisturisation, hand and feet care and promise to leave skin supple and youthful. Both are packed with antioxidants to help repair skin damage and so can be used as a healing skin butter too.
Our luxurious, pure and unrefined Shea butter as well as our fresh cocoa butter are both sourced from Ghana, from a Women’s Association.”
My first impressions – I love it! It arrived when I was midst perioral dermatitis outbreak, so I took to it like no ones business and it did not disappoint. Not only it nourished the skin, helped it heal, but it also soothed the insane itch too, a bonus I appreciate greatly.
INGREDIENTS: 65% Organic Unrefined RAW Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter), 35% Theobroma Caoao (Cocoa) Seed Butter.
Shea Coconut BUTTER
• 85% shea butter & 15% virgin coconut oil
• Rich in omega oils
• Protective and skin healing
• Promotes skin health and radiance
What happens when you blend creamy Shea butter with the gorgeous coconut oil? You get the fabulous combination of Coconut Shea Butter, a lighter version of Shea butter. It perfectly combines the powerful properties of both to create a blend of buttery exquisiteness that smells incredibly delectable.
Shea butter is rich in oleic and linoleic acids that nourish the skin and keep it beautifully hydrated. It is also rich in vitamins A, E and F which help to protect and promote youthful-looking skin. It pairs perfectly with the moisturising and healing qualities of fresh Sri Lankan organic raw coconut oil. Together it protects and restores skin health, and leaves it supremely soft. The lovely, smooth consistency easily melts into the layers of the skin and keeps it hydrated all day long.
Fushi’s unrefined, pure Shea butter enhanced with organic, virgin coconut oil is ideal for those who prefer a lighter version and of Shea. It can be used for face and body moisturisation, hand and feet care, dry skin and is an overall multipurpose skin moisturiser.
Ingredients: 85% Organic Unrefined RAW Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter), 15% Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera).
Shea Butter is sourced from the Yumzaa Women Association cooperative in the Northern part of Ghana in a town called Tanpi in Tamale. They are a member of the NBSSI (National Board of Small Scale Industries) back by the government.
My first impressions – I love it! So much easier to use than regular she butter, in a way that it glides on the skin so smoothly, no need to warm it up between the palms of your hands or anything like that. The scent is lovely and I love the way it leaves the skin soft for days.
