“My child has atopic skin. During the cold winter months, red, rough, itchy skin patches appear on the child’s legs which cause a lot of discomfort, especially during sleep. Going to swimming lessons made it even worse at times, only the summer sun brought relief to the problem. I read about the healing properties of shea butter and decided to give it a chance. I started a nightly routine, where I massaged Nurme Shea Oil into my child’s skin for 10 minutes. We saw great results so fast! Today I wouldn’t trade Shea Oil for any other product for my child’s skin. I ONLY used shea oil, no other creams were used at the same time. Before and after pictures are 10 days apart!”

“I recently discovered that I have developed atopic dermatitis. I got rid of it with hormone ointment, but it came back again. The other day I saw an advertisement for Nurme shea oil. I ran to the I.L.U store with my arm in burning pain and bought the oil. I put it on yesterday. And my arms are clean this morning. Wow!!!”

I have been atopic and allergic since birth, but it has been more or less always under control.
A year ago my eyes started to itch like crazy, I went to an allergist who gave me a hormone cream. It was almost impossible to use as it burned my face like crazy.
Last autumn, the rash appeared on my face and kept spreading all over my face. On the recommendation of my family doctor I kept on applying hormone ointments, 4 different ones in total. It went completely out of controle. Eventually, my face was swollen, inflamed and scaly.
Finally I got to the dermatologist and he prescribed antibiotics. In addition, I started applying Nurme shea oil on my face every night. This product worked wonders! I still use it every night, but the face was healed with about 2 weeks. My face is wonderfully smooth and soft. Takes away itchiness.

Hello! I am writing to give you feedback about your shea oil. My daughter has had problems with her skin on her hands for many years, which become dry, red, cracked, sore despite the season. We have been to a dermatologist who has not been able to give a solution to the problem. She has tried various creams, but nothing has had the desired effect. A week ago, the knuckles were almost bleeding. I saw an advertisement for the shea oil and decided to give it a try. For a week now she has been putting it on her hands every night before she goes to bed and we are already seeing results – hands don’t hurt, discoloration started to recede on the second day, spots and roughness are disappearing. Unbelievable! And she had this problem for years. I’ll include pictures so you can see what it was last week and what it is today.
Night and day! Wonderful product and we are sincerely grateful!

I want to share a wonderful feedback. For a year now I have been struggling with severe acne that came with pregnancy and the acne that followed. Through e-consultation, the dermatologist prescribed me an ointment that turned my face into a total mess. So I initially ordered the shea oil from you. The initial sores healed, but the acne persisted. Then I ordered tea tree soap. To be honest, it hasn’t even been a week yet. The result are on the picture!
Previous letters have come from people who have had problems with atopic skin. Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory, itchy skin condition that causes red, rough patches on the skin. It is characteristic of the disease to proceed in waves, i.e. to recur after a certain period of time. Examples of external triggers are rough or skin-irritating clothes, cold and damp climate, but also excessively dry and hot room air, and various chemicals in both skin care products and detergents. In addition, stress, illness, food intolerances, and allergies are among the irritants.
Shea oil is like the beige gold of Africa, which helps to relieve these skin irritations and also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Shea oil is made from the nuts of the shea tree and is available in both unrefined and refined forms. Nurme shea oil is refined, i.e. cleaned of impurities and unwanted compounds. Unrefined shea oil should not be applied to irritated, burned, or damaged skin, as the product is considered unclean. It may contain, for example, sand, dust, or dirt, as the shea nuts are harvested in Ghana, where the groves are by the roadsides, and the conditions under which the locals harvest the shea nuts are unknown.
Nurme shea oil has undergone primary refining, which means that dirt is physically removed with a sieve and then the mass is processed. This DOES NOT mean bleaching or deodorizing (to remove or conceal an unpleasant smell) in a chemical way. Dominant odor and dirt are removed using a cold press method in which the shea nuts are pressed under weights, which helps expel the oil while screening out the shea nut fibers and unwanted compounds. After processing, cold-pressed shea oil has a more neutral aroma, a more uniform composition, and a light beige color, which is safer for inflamed and irritated skin.
Nurme refined shea oil is suitable for use by the whole family and for babies from their first day of life. Shea oil absorbs slowly into the skin, which ensures a longer effect. It is especially suitable for evening use – apply it to the skin before going to bed and let it relieve skin problems during the night. A rich shea and almond cream is perfect for daytime use because it absorbs faster and does not leave the skin oily. It is definitely worth noting that if a nut allergy has been diagnosed, the use of shea oil can cause a reaction.
