If you are like me who makes an annual pilgrimage to Global Village to source interesting stuff, then you must have definitely noted the Shea butter sold in the African Pavilion. Why Africa? Because the best natural shea butter is found there! Shahd Elghazali brings you the purest version from the local villages of Benin, West Africa as Noix De Shea! This is one of the finest Shea Butters available in the UAE market, 100% natural, fresh, and raw, Noix de Shea butter is a soft, smooth, multi-purpose essential. The brand also offers its own exquisite Grade A original blends that include organic Lavender, Rose Musk, Peppermint, Jasmine and Lemongrass.
Shahd Elghazali believes in the power and beauty of nature. A striver for exceptional simplicity and a fellow human with a passion to inspire, Shahd brings more than just an excellent product to the market. Through Noix De Shea, Shahd seeks to improve the understanding of the audience about what natural Shea butter should look and feel like.
Shea butter is known widely to deeply nourish the skin from the inside to reveal plump, radiant, healthy glowing skin. Shea butter is fat extracted from the nuts of the shea tree and has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries. Native to West Africa, this skin superfood has a high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids and an easy-to-spread consistency, making it a great product for smoothing, soothing, and conditioning your skin.
“In 2019, I took a trip to Benin Republic where I discovered the undermined treasure that is raw unrefined Shea butter. Learning all that I did about its incredible properties, benefits and the women’s cooperation under which production is held, I soon realized that raw Shea butter is one of the greatly misunderstood and misused products. That’s how Noix de Shea was born.”
“As a mother, I’m passionate about introducing only clean, safe, ethically sourced and effective products into my environment. Through Noix de Shea, we are dedicated to introducing a new, fresh take on the bioactive beauty skin superfood that is raw Shea butter. Our slogan is ‘Shea butter, like you’ve never seen before’ – our Shea butter is like no other – whether it’s the texture, quality, story or attention to detail. This is Shea butter, but redefined,” says Shahd.
Ethically sourced butterNoix de Shea sources its shea butter through fair trade, an arrangement designed to help producers in developing countries achieve sustainable and equitable trade relationships. It obtains natural shea butter through 100% fair trade with village locals in Benin, West Africa.
We try it out!
I tried it morning and night as a moisturizer. It is super moisturizing and creates a protective layer on the skin leaving it plump while locking moisture and filling in any dry cracks that you may have! It is amazing to use on arms and legs after shaving, leaves them feeling super soft. I even tried using it on the feet and it worked wonderfully on the heels! How much better can this get?? Someone told me that it was good for hair and since I have slightly frizzy hair, I rubbed a bit and smoothed it over the hair and voila! I had soft smooth hair all day long. So basically, this works!!
It has a slightly thick texture and needs to be warmed in your hands or between fingers before use. Because of the texture, it is economical to use and wonderful for nourishing, moisturizing, soothing and softening the skin. – Viki Shah
