Shea butter is a popular ingredient in skin care products due to its nourishing and moisturizing properties. Derived from the nuts of the shea tree, shea butter is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for dry or damaged skin.
But did you know that shea butter can also provide natural sun protection? While shea butter alone is not enough to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it can be used as a complementary ingredient in sunscreens or as a post-sun treatment to soothe and repair sun-damaged skin.
Shea butter contains a high concentration of vitamin E, which has been shown to have some UV-protective effects. Additionally, the fatty acids in shea butter can help to create a barrier on your skin, which can help to prevent moisture loss and protect your skin from environmental stressors, including sun damage.
When used in combination with other natural ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, shea butter can help to enhance the sun protection provided by a sunscreen. And because shea butter is a natural ingredient, it is gentle on your skin and less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions.
After sun exposure, shea butter can also help to soothe and repair sun-damaged skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties can reduce redness and inflammation, while its moisturizing effects can help to prevent peeling and promote faster healing.
Overall, shea butter is an excellent ingredient to include in your skin care routine, especially if you are looking for natural sun protection or after-sun care. Look for products that contain shea butter and other natural ingredients for the best results.

Cocoa butter is a natural fat extracted from cocoa beans that has been used for centuries in various industries including food, medicine, and cosmetics. It is a popular ingredient in skincare products due to its many benefits for the skin.
One of the main benefits of cocoa butter is its ability to moisturize the skin. It contains fatty acids that are easily absorbed by the skin, which helps to create a barrier that prevents moisture loss. This makes cocoa butter a great ingredient for people with dry or sensitive skin.
In addition to its moisturizing properties, cocoa butter also has antioxidant properties. It contains a variety of antioxidants, including vitamin E, which help to protect the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation. This can help to prevent premature aging and the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These compounds have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce inflammation and redness in the skin. This makes cocoa butter a great ingredient for people with acne-prone or sensitive skin.
Furthermore, cocoa butter contains oleic acid, which is known to have a positive effect on the skin's elasticity. This can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, making it look more youthful and vibrant.
In summary, cocoa butter is a wonderful ingredient for skincare products due to its ability to moisturize, protect, and improve the overall health of the skin. Whether you have dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, incorporating cocoa butter into your skincare routine can be a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

Long lasting, lovely scent
I really enjoy Cocoon Apothecary soaps. I received this one as a gift and I am now repurchasing it! Because it is a hard bar, it lasts much longer than other bar soaps I've tried. I love that they have no harmful chemicals and that they are naturally scented. These are a great stocking stuffer around Christmas!
Lovely bar soap
Lovely soap but a bit more expensive than what I usually purchase. Will see if it lasts longer.
Was a gift, but smells amazing and they last forever.
Love it. The fragrance is
Love it. The fragrance is lovely and light. Soap feels great and cleanses gently.

These are my go to bath soaps now. They last a long time, are gentle on my dry winter skin and the luxurious lather makes me happy! May Chang is my favourite scent. It is fresh and not too perfumy.
I love your soap!
They are gentle on my skin, they are moisturizing, and they smell wonderful. Plus, they last forever.
