Welcome to my new health and beauty blog! I thought I would begin with an introduction to the wonders of shea butter which is the main ingredient in Trianon Bouquet Face Creams. From Healthy Beginnings:

       100 % pure shea butter is a superior moisturizer, containing  remarkable healing properties for various skin aliments. Unrefined Shea  Butter has the largest healing fraction and contains very special  natural ingredients that are ideal for healthier skin. Shea butter has a  vast number of proven healing properties stemming from its physical  makeup of vitamin E, vitamin A and cinnamic acid to name a few. Shea  butter’s ingredients increase the healing of wounds and improve scars. Additionally, shea butter contains several natural natural  anti-inflammatory agents. Clinical studies have shown that this product  transforms the skin into a softer, smoother, and better looking skin.  Those who routinely use shea butter report a number of other special  benefits for skin ailments, including blemishes, itching, sunburns,  small skin wounds, eczema, skin allergies, and wrinkles. Because of an  abundance of healing ingredients, and its superior moisturizing  activity, Shea Butter is in a unique class, as a stand-alone personal  care product. Skin protection: Shea butter contains natural UV sun  protection. Daily use of shea butter on the face and body drastically  reduces sun exposure, which in turn slows down the rate of aging due to  external factors. Shea butter also acts as a natural mantle against  elements of cigarette smoke, smog and chemical pollutants in the  atmosphere. Skin moisturization: Shea butter leaves skin smooth,  supple and soft. It is rapidly becoming the #1 moisturizing agent used  today. It quickly provides stretch mark prevention and healing, as well  as healing of bruises and burns. Warning: some manufacturers of skin  care products will label their moisturizer “Shea Butter”, but you MUST  read the labels to make sure that it contains a substantial amount of  shea butter, or you may spend your money on inexpensive imitations.  Ingredients are listed in order of dominance, so remember, if you don’t  see “Shea Butter” listed at the top of the list, you may be buying a  diluted product.
