Shea Butter : Safer Alternative to toxic Baby Oil

I read a beauty tip once from on of the famous supermodels. She stated that if you wanted to have a gorgeous “I’ve just been to the spa glow” add a little baby oil to your bath water.

Before running out to get a bottle, I did a little research about baby oil and found out that unfortunately, baby oil contains hydrocarbons that can be deadly. If children aspirate baby oil, their lungs become coated with the oil. This blocks oxygen and prevents proper respiration, ultimately leading to chemical pneumonia which can be fatal.

In fact, baby is so dangerous that childproof caps on baby oil bottles became mandatory starting in October 2002!

So instead a melted a little organic Shea Butter which is safe enough to eat, and poured into my bath water. And my skin was super soft, supple and yes it even glowed. Mothers should be using Shea Butter regularly instead of toxic baby oil when it comes to both their skin care and the skin care of their baby.
