In this day and age, we are always rush rush rush, go go go.  We take showers as a daily necessity- get clean and get out.   Amid theBathtub hustle and bustle, we’ve lost track of a classic, therapeutic way to cleanse.  With all the stressors that every person deals with daily, perhaps it’s time to consider a change in the routine and revisit the bathtub.

Bathtime used to be a big deal, an event even.  The Romans utilized bathhouses for everything from Roman Bathperformance theaters to relaxation destinations.  The Egyptians took baths for purification purposes prior to worship and the Japanese believed in ritual bathing to cleanse the mind and spirit.  In many of these cases, the resulting clean body was an afterthought.  This goes to show the many ways in which a bath can be beneficial.

Today, we use them to clean our bodies but there are many physical and mental benefits to a bath Woman Bathing

  • Soaking in a tub is a great way to treat large areas, such as for satisfying itchy skin.
  • A warm bath can help relax an anxious mind.
  • The drop in body temperature resulting from a bath can help a person who is having troubles sleeping.
  • Being in the water can take the stress off sore joints and muscles
  • A warm soak may ease the pain caused by sports injuries or arthritis.
  • Baths may reduce inflammation, pain, menstrual cramps and burns.

Consider this the next time you’re about to squeeze your Gelée into your shower pouf, consider using it in your bathwater instead and enjoy the many healing benefits of a nice, warm bath.

Shea Butter has been around for centuries, but has never been more top of mind than now.

So how much do you really know about Shea Butter? We are excited to talk about Shea Butter because it is a key ingredient in one of our newest products…Vitabath Hand Crème 20% Shea Butter formula!

Shea TreeShea Nut It all begins in Africa…Shea Butter, also known as Karite Butter, is derived from the Shea Tree, or Karite Tree indigenous to Africa. The fruit of the Shea Tree has a thin pulp that surrounds a large oil-rich seed from which the Shea Butter is extracted by crushing and boiling.

The ivory-colored natural fat contains many fatty acids and it these fatty acids that give Shea Butter its unique natural restorative properties and makes it a particularly effective moisturizer and emollient. Moisturizers help to nourish and protect skin. Emollients wonderfully soften and soothe the skin. shea butter

The magic of Shea Butter is vast:

  • Recognized for its anti-aging benefits, it can help diminish wrinkles and promote cell renewal.
  • It contains Vitamins A and E which helps to keep skin supple and healthy. Vitamin A has antioxidant properties – the latest buzz word – which basically means, it can neutralize free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage.
  • It has also been known to have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. No wonder it is used in so many cosmetic products!
  • And no secret why we had to formulate our new Hand Crème with 20% Shea Butter – to simply nourish and protect your skin!

Our 4.2 oz Hand Crème tube is a nice size to pack in your purse, always there to give you a helping hand. So pass the Shea butter, please!
