Welcome to Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods... we promise it is easier than you think to DIY skin care with the highest-quality ingredients. We’ll help you get started and be there throughout your journey...
Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods was started by me, Isabella, to make the world of natural, chemical-free beauty accessible to everyone. I know we’re all busy women – moms, wives, business owners and career mavens, but I’m passionate about the fact that no matter how busy we get, there’s always time to do the right thing for our bodies. The great part about DIY skin care is it truly only involves minutes of hands-on time to whip up a batch of lotion, cream or deodorant. And we provide the recipes (free) so you’ve got a place to begin.
One of my goals when I started this company was to bring the purest, most organic, sustainable skin foods to you for DIY skin care, and be someone you can rely on to help improve your skin care issues – no matter how big or small. We sincerely love to hear from you and consider you, our customers, friends.
It all started with my mom Rossana.
When she was 17, her parents bought her a store in a small village in Northern Italy where she opened her very own hair salon and spa. At 19, she won a local competition for best hair stylist (check out that hair-do!) and she kept working hard at beautifying Italian women since. I love her feisty Italian spirit, her obsession with healthy skin and with always being perfect before stepping out of the house.
My adolescent years are a mix of seeing my mom working hard while looking perfect at all times, and hanging out at my grandparents house where chickens and rabbits were roaming free. I can still see my grandpa picking grapes from his back yard and making Moscato in his basement (which I drank for the first time at age 10). I remember walking to the local bakery every morning to buy fresh bread and sugar focaccia and being reprimanded by my mom for not wearing lipgloss when going out. I remember being forced to eat healthy, organic, homemade foods that at the time I did not appreciate as much as I do now.
I can definitely say that my Italian upbringing and my mamma are the inspiration for starting Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods, and I couldn't be happier than where I am at this point in my life journey.
SHEA BUTTER IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods started with our unrefined, organic Shea Butters from Ghana and continued from there with the Unrefined Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, and a few other ingredients to round out your skin care routine. I am proud to say, the results have far exceeded my dreams when it comes to how much our pure ingredients and recipes have helped all of you.
Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods products are all-natural, organic, raw ingredients that allow you to DIY and solve your skin care issues– no chemicals, only purity the way nature intended.
We are proud to be your one-stop resource for step-by-step instructions on how to make homemade skin and hair care, AND provide the purest, raw ingredients. Because of the overwhelmingly positive results from you, we are continually researching new recipes for better, more radiant skin. We’ll keep you updated through our social media platforms, so keep tabs on us through Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, and subscribe to our bi-monthly newsletter.
I want to personally thank you for supporting Better Shea Butter & Skin Foods, a family-owned, women-owned American business. We are proud partners with the Ghanaian women in Africa who make our organic, unrefined Shea Butter and are thrilled to be sharing this high-quality product with the world. We are delighted to continue adding other ethically operated, organic co-ops and suppliers to our family, offering you the purest skin foods available.
“Welcome to our corner of the beauty world, we love to have you and hope to provide you with the ingredients and guidance that you need to keep you glowing.”
