I’m very particular when it comes to products for my hair and body. I’ve become a fan of Shea Moisture after I was introduced to the brand when I had my mini:licious Pre-Launch Party in LA. I’ve written about the baby and kids products on mini:licious, you can read about it here. The products smell so good and my mommy friends that used the products raved about it. I personally love that the products are based on cultural traditions, rituals and wisdom. Products are made of natural, exotic ingredients from all over the world, not tested on animals and do not contain parabens, phthalates, paraffin, sulfates, formaldehyde, mineral oil, artificial color or synthetic fragrances. So it’s safe to use even on the most sensitive skins.
There’s a large variety of products, so I’m sure everyone will find something they like. Their collections include: Coconut & Hibiscus, Lavender & Wild Orchid, African Black Soap, Argan Oil & Raw Shea, Lemongrass & Ginger and Olive & Green Tea and Raw Shea Butter. Read all about the collections and take your pick! Shop the collection at target.com.
