  2. Thanks for this awesome website about shea butter and how to use it well. As for diet and eczema, the thing that helped me the most was removing as much sugar as possible from my diet. I used to be a serious sugar addict and have given up probably 90% of the sugar I used to eat. Now whenever I eat more than the smallest amount of sugar, the eczema comes back. Shea butter cream has helped me keep my skin healthy as well.

  3. My son has eczema and we have found that he was allergic to cows milk. Removing cow’s milk (or cow’s milk formula) from diet helps a great deal. Using tea tree oil mild handmade soaps works wonders too. Oh and of course raw shea butter!

  4. My baby has eczema on his face, hands and arms. I’ve been taking raw shea butter and mixing in a few drops of evening primrose oil, just in my hand until combined. It only took about 4-5 days of putting this on his skin, and the eczema vanished. I did have to put it on about 5 times/day (he’s a drooly baby). If I reduced it to only 2-3 times, the eczema came back.

  5. Hi, my name is Erika, I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone ever tied to add vitamin E or Olive Squalane when making whipped shea butter. My Little Boy and myself both suffer from Eczema so use black soap to wash but when it flares up although shea butter on its own makes the patches better but the eczema does not completly go away. So my question is how much of these oils to add to the shea butter?

  6. wonderful site,a giver never lack pls.keep on establishing ur team of a potentiential enterpreneur.remain.bless

  7. My son had eczema really bad on his knuckles, elbows and ankles. I treated him with tea tree oil and raw shea butter and you can’t even tell he had it! Wonderful product!

  8. I have had eczema for years and suffered from the itching and skin discoloration.

    After changing my diet, adding a good multivitamin and using both shea butter and black soap on my skin, this year, for the first time, the eczema is under control.

    I just wash daily with the soap and moisturize with the butter and I’m good to go!

    I plan to make whipped butter to sell, because I’m a believer!
