People who care about their skin want it to look its best in the summer. And even though the market has a staggering amount of skincare products available, the hunt for the perfect balm keeps many fussy folks looking. Some options they might not have tried are at the Pure Shea Store in Eastern Market, which offers many handmade products made from shea butter, a plant-based fat derived from the seeds of the African shea tree. Shea butter is naturally moisturizing and healing, but it can take forever to absorb. Luckily, Pure Shea’s shea-and-aloe lotion is great for giving your skin a much-needed shot of moisture. The lotions cost $10 for an 8-ounce bottle and are available in six different scents, including cocoa-mango, sandalwood, lavender, kush, vanilla, and lilac-gardenia. All of Pure Shea’s products are chemical- and additive-free — a great way to give your skin some extra love. They also carry bubble baths, salt scrubs, and candles. Find their offerings in the store, behind Gratiot Central Market, or at puresheastore.com. For more information, call 313-914-8995.
