Aviela is a natural skincare range using ethically sourced 100% PURE, highest grade, UNREFINED Shea Butter as the hero ingredient which is softening, nourishing, anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, anti-ageing, protective and can be used head to toe.
Aviela is a range of all-natural skincare products, each containing high concentrations of 100% pure, highest grade, unrefined Shea Butter with outstanding power to help naturally heal dry skin. Our 100% natural, African Shea Butter brand, brings you a luxurious range of highly efficacious products that use only raw, unrefined ingredients to transform the skin.
Founded by Patricia Monney, the range was created following her daughters amazing recovery using shea butter that led to her taking her first steps. Aviela ethically source their Grade A, Unrefined Shea Butter directly from the fields of Northern Ghana working with a Women’s Cooperative that is very close to the founder heart. This relationship is a sustainable way to celebrate Ghanaian culture and empower the community and women who craft the Shea Butter and who rely heavily on the proceeds to feed their families and school their children.
Thanks to its softening, moisturising, anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, anti-ageing and protective properties, unrefined Shea Butter has been used for centuries as a natural remedy to help hydrate, protect, heal, promote skin renewal and condition, soften, and smooth skin and hair. It has also been used to help control skin inflammation conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea and eczema.
Packed with five essential fatty acids including: Allantoin, Phytosterols and Vitamins A, D & E Shea Butter is a soothing and effective natural remedy for skin prone to eczema and psoriasis; it absorbs quickly into the skin and acts as a protective layer on the surface of the skin as it absorbs into and moisturizes the deeper layers. Shea Butter is also known to reduce swelling, another skin condition linked with eczema and psoriasis.
But not all butters are made equal. The process of refining Shea Butter is performed partly to speed up production, and partly to revamp its natural colour, scent, and texture, treats the raw Shea Butter with excess heat and non-natural chemicals. Unfortunately, this can compromise its valuable minerals, proteins, and essential fatty acids, resulting in some of its beneficial properties being lost. The resulting product, which is generally pure white in colour, often has fragrances and preservatives added, which can increase the likelihood of irritation and allergic reactions.
Not Aviela, with its rich, earthy aroma, it is free from artificial colours, fragrances, preservatives, and additives. We source our incredible 100% pure, grade A, unrefined Shea Butter from a Women’s Cooperative in Africa. Working together we help to support local communities whilst receiving high quality raw ingredient. We handle every ounce with care to keep it as close to its purest form as possible, which as well as preserving all the skin-loving benefits, also helps to create the unique, Aviela texture.
You can use Shea Butter head to toe, as a moisturizer throughout the day or after your bath or shower.
