I LOVVE shopping, some may even say I shop too much. Personally I don’t think that is possible, but my husband and bank account disagree. So when I was approached by Nilotic’s to try their skincare products and discovered that with every purchase I could make a difference, I knew that this was something special!
To start, I’ll begin with the products themselves. These fruit butters are bursting with antioxidants and skin healthy vitamins! As many of you may know, I have recently been posting about and working on my all natural eating habits for a better healthier me, and it should be no different when it comes to skin health either! Nilotic shea fruits butter is the only nut-derived butter that is consistently grade A, which means more Phyto-Nutrients for skin firmness, anti-aging benefits and acne treatment. (Must I say more?!?) On the contrary, the shea that we usually find in commercial beauty products are often grade D. So, not only is this a grade A formula, but it has large amounts of Stearic Acid and Oleic Acid (fatty acids). Steric Acid helps with fine lines, wrinkles, acne, cuts, burns, bug bites, and discoloration. While Oleic Acid makes for a super soft, silky, light ‘whipped’ feeling and includes antioxidant vitamins A, C, & E in addition to vitamin K.
These crèmes are all 100% pure and chemical Free, PETA approved & Cruelty Free, Vegan and Non Toxic. They are suitable for ALL skin & lip types, including sensitive skin. They are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and are dermatologist recommended. Outside of the incredible healthy benefits, I love how the crème melts into my skin. Consider coconut oil when you take a spoonful right out of the jar to cook with, it’s has a crème like texture but then as soon as it hits the hot pan its melts into a clear liquid. That is the best way that I can explain this amazing melting process, I love that it melts and absorbs right into my skin, and because of how it melts you really do not need a lot so your jar will last you a long time!
Now lets talk about why you have not 1, not 2 but 3 good reasons to shop with Nilotic’s!
- With every purchase Nilotic’s will plant one Moringa tree, one shea tree and one bamboo tree. The Moringa Tree is a miracle tree with 3x the potassium of a banana, 2x the protein & 4x the Calcium than in milk, 4x the Vitamin A you find in carrots, and 7x the vitamin C you find in oranges. Saying its fruit products are extremely nutritious is an understatement. Planting the Moringa tree will also enhance the nutritional value of the local diet in rural West Nile, Northern Uganda as well as improving income from a high yield crop such as Moringa (More on that in reason 3!) The West Nile, Northern Uganda region is the birthplace of the Nilotic Shea Fruit Butter. So, each time a product is sold a new Shea tree is planted to replenish the miracle Shea Fruit needed for Nilotic’s products. Although it takes over 40 years before they yield fruit, the result is worth the wait! Nilotic does not replicate the cosmetics market by packaging in cheap, non-biodegradable and/or chemically dyed plastic. They use 100% pure & sustainable Bamboo. I love receiving my bamboo jar’s they look amazing and knowing they are sold in natural jar’s is a bonus! Tree planting initiatives are in partnership with Aee Church of Uganda
- With every purchase Nilotic’s will pay 3 weeks (or ¼ of a semester) of school fees for a ‘disadvantaged’ child in Kampala, Uganda, whose parents or supporters cannot afford to send their child to school. The School project initiative is through the Nilotic team along with Ghetto Film Project, a not for profit group of Ugandan film creators aiming to inspire ‘disadvantaged’ children through film and sport.
Women’s Empowerment is also a priority for the Nilotic’s company and through the tree planting initiatives, noted above, you will find the local Shea women are learning through workshops and seminars on how to become full time entrepreneurs and support their families. Through these programs, like planting the trees and selling them back to the Nilotics company, Shea Women earn three times more than their West African counterparts so they’re able to support their families comfortably.
I do not know anywhere else you can find a product that is all natural, chemical free and absolutely amazing for your skin. I mean I use my crème before bed every night and put it on before my makeup every morning – I love how my skin has felt and notice a considerable difference when it comes to fine lines, red spots, and even puffiness under my eyes since I have begun using Nilotics. All of this along with supporting the children, economy and women’s empowerment programs in Northern Uganda is just the icing on top of the cake!
