Found in Zambia : Umoyo Shea Butter

Hey Doves!

This is a new series I want to start up showcasing products found or produced here in Zambia.

Product Name
Umoyo Shea Butter

All natural shea butter

Can be used for skin and hair. Especially useful for eczema and psoriasis sufferers to alleviate symptoms.

Found at
Umoyo Health Stores. I picked this baby up at the East Park Mall branch in Lusaka.


My thoughts
This shea butter has a mild nutty aroma and is an excellent sealant for my hair! I always used to read about how good shea butter is, and recommended it to people. However I never got the chance to buy it until recently. It really softens the hair and seals in moisture. So much so that it has claimed top spot as a sealant, pushing down my beloved castor oil to second place. I also tried it on  my skin, it left it soft and moisturised the whole day. It comes at a hefty price tag retailing at K80 for 200g, but one only needs a very little amount which makes it worth the price and then some. I've had it for three weeks now and have barely scratched the surface. 

Im glad to see Zambians rising up and being more proactive about locally produced products. 5/5 from me!
