Shea Butter Face Cream

  • In a glass or stainless steel bowl, mash the shea butter using the back of a spoon or a wooden stick until there are no lumps visible and it is entirely smoothed out.
  • Begin whisking the shea butter until it starts getting creamier.
  • Slowly drizzle in the carrier oils as you continue to whisk the creamed shea butter, until a silky, smooth consistency emerges.
  • Add the synergy right into the cream and stir together.
  • Transfer the mixture to the glass jar, cap, and store away from heat. You can use the face cream for one month.
