    Palmer's shea butter questions/reguler shea butter

    Ok, I have no African shea butter from Jergens or anything. Mainly because I cannot find any in any store I look for. So I have bought Palmer's shea butter formula which is in a creamy lotion like formula. It contains mineral oil, and soybean oil.

    I also have bought Black and beautiful shea butter dip. Again a very lotiony lotion. RICH CREAM LOTION

    My question is,will any of these cause me to break out? If so please tell me why.

    I have dry skin and kind of peel like skin or just dry patches over my face mainly in the mustache area, chin, lower cheeks, unibrow region, eyebrows, and nose.

    Personally, I would not use those. If you're wanting the true benefits of shea butter, you will probably need to look on the internet, if there aren't any African stores in your area. Do a search under "free trade unrefined shea butter". REAL shea butter comes in a "hunk"-like a brick shaped piece. All that other stuff you buy in the store has shea butter in it, but as you said above, it's got other stuff in it, too. That other stuff might make you break out. But I mean, try what you got. It may work for you and not make you break out.

    yes, mineral oil will make you break out. look for karite...i think that's the official name of shea butter, the real kind, made in africa.

    yup, the pure, unrefined stuff is the way to go.

    I've been using this stuff and I have not really broken out to my knowledge. Hopefully I can keep it from kicking in breakout mode.

    Are there any good moisturizers out that I can use that are veeeeeeeerrrrryyyy good and you could get from a walgreens or grocery store? I am desperate! I have used cetaphil, clean and clear moisturizers and some other products. None really help moisturize my skin and keep it that way for more than a couple hours.

    It is very hard to find something from a drug store that will keep your skin moist for long that is good for acne. Everything is water based, your skin needs natural oils.
