Product Description

Nourish your skin naturally
Ruby Red - gorgeously organic bath and body care made simple.

Ruby Red Organic Whipped Shea Butter
From Ruby Red's Natural range - we've only used one ingredient - 100% pure organic shea butter from Ghana - and whipped it from cold to naturally nourish, moisturize and protect your skin wherever it's needed most. No aroma, nothing added - suitable for even the most sensitive of skin.

Directions for Use
Simply massage a small amount onto hands and allow cream to be absorbed. Can also be used on any area of dryness including elbows, feet, knees and lips - or on face as treatment cream. This is a rich, natural moisturiser so a little goes a long way.

*Tip* - our pure shea butter makes a great lip salve and general all-round treatment cream which can be used sparingly on extreme areas of dry skin.

Each 50ml adorable aluminium tin is secured by a fluted coloured card wrap and finished with a natural raffia bow flourish, making this a gorgeous gift for someone special, or why not treat yourself?

Our shea butter
We're proud our organic shea butter is ethically sourced from a womens' co-operative in Ghana that's paid a fair price for their produce. A natural moisturiser, it's made from nut of the Karite tree and has been used for centuries to soften and nourish the skin.

Who we areAbout Ruby Red:
Dedicated to making exceptional skin care gorgeously simple, we hand make all our products in our workshop in North London using only the very best organic vegetable and essential oils. That's how we create our trademark rich Ruby Red aromas, making sure that you get all the goodness by not heating any of the ingredients. Just like eating raw vegetables, only much more fun.

When it comes to keeping skin kissably smooth and seriously soft, we believe that nature knows best. That's why everything you'll ever find in Ruby Red packaging is guaranteed gorgeously organic and natural.

The Ruby Red story
It all started when we gave up our proper jobs and armed with just a change of clothes and a guide book, went travelling around south east Asia to the parts that tourists never normally experience. In between chatting to Tibetan Monks and riding elephants we discovered cultures where beauty was all about natural ingredients and traditional techniques. Resulting in great looking skin.

Back in Blighty, armed with our experience in fragrances and cosmetics, we began mixing our own natural beauty products. Friends and family loved the results, but we thought they were probably just being nice. So we took our natural products to Portobello Market and sold out within hours. That's when we knew we were onto a good thing. We set up our own workshop in North London and it wasn't long before Ruby Red caught the interest of hip eco-boutiques in London and we released our products into the big, wide world.

Today Ruby Red can be found in selected high street retailers nationwide and prestigious department stores in London. Best of all, we haven't changed any of our winning formulations, so the products you buy today are still lovingly handmade by us in our workshop, using fantastic organic ingredients.

Why "Ruby Red"?
We're named after the co-founders; who are a real life Mr and Mrs Ruby. That and the fact that Mrs Ruby also has a penchant for red coloured lipstick.

What we believe in
We like to keep things pure and simple:
We specialise in hand making richly aromatic, gorgeously organic, 100% vegetarian products for bath and body packed with fresh, natural ingredients and containing no artificial colours, parabens or other synthetic preservatives, petroleum based ingredients, animal fats or harsh chemicals. That's why we have some of the shortest ingredient lists ever. Go on, check them out for yourself, they're teeny!

Each and every one of our products is made by us from our workshop in North London. Everything is mixed, blended, filled, wrapped and labelled lovingly with our own fair hands. We don't use cost-cutting manufacturing cheats such as artificial colours or synthetic fragrances and preservatives so you can be sure your product has left the workshop without having heard the word "chemical".

We make sure that our little bundles of loveliness are wrapped up snug in biodegradable and recyclable packaging and sent off into the world as pure as possible. What happens to them next is entirely up to you!

Raw ingredients
The raw ingredients we use are most nutritious for the body and skin when they're fresh and unprocessed because that's when they contain the most vitamins, minerals and enzymes. That's why we don't heat any of our ingredients, to keep them jam-packed with nutrients and good stuff, creating the purest products possible.

Chemicals? No way!
At Ruby Red we've never thought that chemicals make for a good look. That means we promise our products contain strictly no synthetic fragrances, no artificial colours and certainly no petroleum-based or animal-derived nasties - just 100% natural goodness for your skin.

Using any synthetics would mean compromising the benefits to your body. We'd certainly save a few bob if we preserved a product within an inch of its life and stored the goods in a big warehouse, but we think you and your skin deserve better. At last, an ingredient list which isn't as long as your arm.

Never, ever tested on animals
Stopping all animal testing is something Ruby Red cares passionately about. We only ever use vegetarian ingredients and will only test our cosmetics on friendly people - never on animals.

We are firmly committed to our policy against animal testing and we will therefore never buy ingredients from any supplier that tests any of its materials on animals for any purpose.

And because we only use natural products, they have all been tested for centuries by people like you.

Purely ethical
Ruby Red fights poverty through trade by supporting small producers around the world who supply us with lovely, natural ingredients. We get wonderful products at a fair price; the communities we support get a sustained source of income to invest in their future.

We buy from co-operatives wherever possible to ensure a fair deal for the local workers and their community. Our shea butter is ethically sourced from a womens' co-operative in Western Ghana. Paid a fair price for their produce, they have been able to pay for organic certification and their first bit of nifty machinery - a hand mill to crush the dried nuts.

Our lovely looking gift boxes are hand crafted from recycled waste paper by a pioneering co-operative in Kathmandu. Over the past few years they have helped to build 3 schools and funded scholarships for more than 125 girls.

Planet positive
At Ruby Red, we believe in running our business in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. Look closely at our gorgeous packaging and you won't find any plastic - just recyclable or biodegradeable containers, all beautifully wrapped with a flourish in paper and raffia, from sustainable material.

Our swing tickets and product labels are all printed on paper from forests that have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. And we use glass, aluminium and cardboard for our product containers, all of which are easily recycled.

Indications

Ruby Red is a natural product, please treat with care. Store away from direct sunlight, in a cool place to keep them fresher for longer.

I couldn't believe how soft this whipped Shea Butter was, a lot of the others I have tried have quite hard. A little goes a long way

I love this product, you can use it on all areas of dry skin - from chapped lips to cuticles - I keep it in my bag and use a small amount on my hands and lips when I'm commuting into work. Best of all is the fact that just one ingredient has been used so you know there's no parabens and chemicals to irritate your skin. And if you don't like scented products, this is great as there's no aroma. I find that the 50ml tin lasts for a long time as the product is quite rich so a little dab goes a long way. I also like the fact that it's all handmade and is lovely to open up, a real treat.

When this product arrived in it's overpack box I thought hang on a minute there's nothing in here.When I opened the box and found the product it was beautifully wrapped as per the picture.
The product itself is rich yet natural with no overpowering smell.It is a great moisturiser for lips and I also use it on my hands.I suffer from dry skin on my hands and chapped lips and found this product was great for both problems.

The only negative for me was the size of the pot versus the price of the product,which I thought was quite expensive and there are possibly cheaper alternatives on the market just as good for less money.

I understand what previous reviewer is saying but I have tried natural unrefined shea butter and it is completely useless, I had to put straight into the bin as was grainy full of hard lumps and had very offensive smell. Certainly wasn't going to put anywhere near my own skin never mind my childrens. From what i have since researched this is normal with pure unrefined shea. Refining and whipping also removes the bacteria and makes it a much more useful product. I therefore prefer to stick to refined or whipped versions. I have been fan of L'Occitanes shea butter for a long time but find their big tins too much and little ones too expensive. This is perfect. A little does go a long long way

I use shea butter on the whole family and we have various tins dotted around the house and in car, handbags and change bags. We use for lips, hands, nappy rash, cradle cap, and eczema. It is fabulous. We all have our own tins too so no cross infection and there are separate tins for face and bums. Hence why I was finding L'occitane too expensive. My daughter developed bad eczema on her legs when 2 weeks old, shea butter cleared it in 48 hours and it has never returned. She also got some very dry skin on her face at 4 weeks old which also resembled eczema and again shea cleared it very quick. From washing my hands constantly and dealing with very hot bottles frequently and the recent cold weather my hands were a mess, thumbs and fingertips were all chapped. I applied pure shea to cracked areas regularly and to whole hands at night and they as good as new. It also works for sinus pain and congestion. My daughter has been really snotty at times but baby vapour products not helping, and the good ones not suitable for her age. We applied shea to forehead, nose and under eyes and she slept so much better.
