Amazing properties of Shea Butter

Shea butter is an aromatic fat obtained from Karite tree seeds which occur naturally in the dry African savanna, from Senegal to Ethiopia. The tree begins to bear fruit only after 30-40 years. Therefore, there is very few plantations. Typically, Shea butter is extracted from wild plants.

It is widely used in Africa, not only as edible fats. It is used without admixtures as an ointment against stretch marks and in baby skin care, for massage of aching muscles and as a treatment for skin irritations. Shea butter is also a natural conditioner for dry, friable, split hair.

Derivatives of cinnamon acid have a huge influence over the properties of this butter. These compounds have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and even prevent the development of cancer. Especially high amount of vitamins A, E and F in Shea butter provides the skin with essential ingredients needed to maintain smoothness, firmness and healthy radiant colour.

dr Slon’s Elixir

New arrival everyone! Spray with nanosilver. Sounds familiar? Well…

unnamed

This product is a brand new introduction in Colway and you know what I love most about it? It has only 3 (THREE) ingredients (INCI)! : Aqua, Oxygen, Silver (nano). That’s all! And it is an extremely powerful product for treating skin prone to irritations, being very gentle and safe to use at the same time.

Silver has been known since the Middle Ages, not only as desirable precious metal but also for its strong bactericidal effect. Silver compounds are toxic to bacteria, viruses and fungi. They had been used to prevent infection, long before antibiotics were invented. Silver (axonnite) used in this product is manufactured in accordance with strict ISO 13485, intended for medical products.

A few words from dr Slon – the creator of this product:

This elixir has been studied in microbiological laboratories. Due to its biocidal effectiveness incomparable with other products based on silver, tests have been repeated two or three times on own initiative of the people who investigated the substance and could not believe in its huge effectiveness.

The study was conducted in relation to five types of “popular” bacteria and two types of fungi. In all cases the results were identical: 100% of bacteria and fungi colonies have been destroyed. The glass dish on which the bacteria were grown was completely free of microorganisms.

You can use it not only on your face, but also on the whole body, even on gentle membranes, spray into your mouth or nose, when you have a bacterial or fungal infection. I have tried it on myself, my husband and my 7-year old daughter and they are all fine, so I confirm it’s safe to use.

Application method: Spray the Elixir directly onto irritated skin and leave to dry. If necessary, repeat the treatment several times a day.

Available to buy from our Irish online shop Active Natural Collagen.
