Our Roots Go Deep

From our roots as farmers and herbal soap makers, we began to create our own natural body care products because we could not find high quality and pure commercial products. Our products are made in small batches to ensure the highest quality.

Foxhollow Herb Farm herbal products use only the highest quality vegetable oils: almond, grapeseed, pecan and extra virgin olive oil. Our essential oils are derived directly from the plant itself. We also steep our herbs and flowers in sun warmed oils for several weeks to extract their fragrance and active ingredients.

Everything is tested on family and friends prior to selling to the public.

Thank you for ordering our products and gifts. As you enjoy nature's benefits benefits through each product, you will feel good knowing that you are treating yourself to a natural experience!

Warmest regards,

Rey and Jackie Mendizabal

The main ingredients of Shea butter include oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid. These ingredients are absorbed into the skin quickly as the fat melts away at body temperature, where they offer moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and healing effects. Shea butter also has antimicrobial qualities and can be used to treat many ailments.

Shea Butter on the Skin; the Benefits

The following are at least ten ways Shea butter can benefit your skin. Remember that it’s safe to use raw Shea butter on the skin and face.

  1. It’s a moisturizing agent 

Shea butter’s excellent moisturizing qualities are attributed to its fatty acid content, including palmitic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, and oleic acid. When you apply Shea butter on the skin, these oils are rapidly absorbed and act as a refatting agent within the skin. Refatting agents restore lipids and create moisture.

  1. It’s an antioxidant 

Shea butter is rich in vitamins A and E, which are some of the best antioxidants. Antioxidants work by protecting your skin (and body) from free radicals associated with premature aging, dull-looking skin, and other health issues. This makes Shea butter an excellent choice for anti-aging.

  1. Anti-inflammatory properties 

Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent solution for skin irritations caused by environmental factors such as dry weather and inflammatory skin conditions such as acne and eczema. When applied to the skin, it triggers the release of cytokines and other inflammatory cells to slow their production.

 Antibacterial properties

Studies show that oral doses of Shea butter on the skin can decrease antimicrobial activity in animals. Of course, further research is needed to determine the truth in this claim. However, people who’ve used topical applications of the product say it decreases the severity of acne – a bacterial infection.

  1. Anti-fungal properties 

Further research is needed here too. However, preliminary findings show that Shea butter can help the skin fight fungal infections. For instance, some people have successfully used the product to treat ringworms and athlete’s foot. Shea butter kills the fungi by obliterating the spores.

  1. Shea butter for cell regeneration 

Your body constantly generates new skin cells while getting rid of dead skin cells. Indeed, studies show that the average human gets rid of up to 40,000 old skin cells each day. New skin cells are needed to replace the dead ones. Shea butter’s moisturizing and antioxidant qualities mean it can help with the generation of new skin cells.

 
  1. Shea butter for collagen production 

Shea butter contains triterpenes, a naturally occurring chemical compound that deactivates collagen fiber destruction. As such, it can promote wound healing and general healing of skin injuries. Some studies also show that triterpenes also induce cell migration, cell proliferation, and collagen deposition. All these processes can boost skin health.

  1. It can prevent acne

Shea butter is rich in different fatty acids, which makes it an option for clearing excess skin oil (sebum). Additionally, the product restores moisture to the skin and has been shown to help lock moisture inside the epidermis so that the skin doesn’t dry out or feel stripped of oil.

  1. Shea butter for wrinkling

The collagen-preservation qualities of Shea butter mean it can also slow down aging-related symptoms such as wrinkles and fine wrinkles. Studies show that it also reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles by boosting collagen production and promoting cell regeneration.

  1. Shea butter for stretch marks 

Finally, Shea butter can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Unrefined Shea butter contains plenty of vitamins A and E, which are key ingredients in collagen production and skin elasticity. An easy way to diminish the appearance of stretch marks and scars is to rub unrefined Shea butter on the skin area twice a day.
