Hey All-
So my skin had been doing really well with Dermalogica products, and then I noticed that my skin started getting bad, ie, breaking out. THen it got REALLY bad. My husband was like, "your skin looks inflamed, almost like you are having an allergic reaction". So I went through and starting cataloguing all the new things I had been eating and putting on my skin. I had just starting using shea butter on my body, NOT on my face. But I stopped using it anyway, and VOILA! My skin is clearing up. ALthough I was not putting it on my face, it was absorbed into my skin. I was using raw, unrefined shea butter, so it's not that I was allergic to any additives, etc.

So...all that to say, check what you are putting on your body, not just your face--it may be affecting your breakouts.

How scary.  I've been putting it on my face lately, too, but only because I've been washing with black soap that dries out my skin.  I use it to moisturize.

if you have been having good results, stick with it. I heard black soap is good, but drying. But I guess I just wanted to let people know that things you put on your body can affect your face as well

that is bizarre! Shocked I wonder why it didn't affect the location you applied it to. Confused You're right, I would never have associated that with a facial reaction.

Shea butter caused me to break out as well.  I was using it for my hair and not even applying it to my face and I was getting new break out's on a daily basis.

This is why I don't use oil or grease in my hair. My face was a mess when I did and it's improved so much without it.
