shea whipped from l’occitane

I am more than a little obsessed with L’Occitane en Provence, and their new limited edition Shea Whipped Collection is no exception.

In Burkina Faso, during one of the steps in the production of shea butter, the women whip the paste to get a soft, light mousse-like texture. This is the inspiration behind the Whipped Shea Butter products, which have an amazing fluffy, light whipped texture. It’s good enough to eat.

Shea butter is known as the Gold of Burkina Faso’s women. This video shows something of the amazing relationship between L’Occitane and the women of Burkina Faso and their shea butter.

Shea Whipped Collection is retailing at R340 for the body cream, R250 for the shower foam and R120 for the hand cream.
