FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can I use sulfur soap on my baby?
A: No! Sulfur soap will burn a baby’s delicate skin badly. Even if there were a way to dilute it and carefully supervise its use, and backup thorough rinsing and then using a moisturizer etc were possible – the answer is absolutely not.
Q: Why do my products sometimes look different from the last time I ordered? Why is my balm a different color this month?
A: The answer lies in the nature of nature itself. Natural variances in our supply of 100% Namibian Shea Butter occur from month to month and so each batch made fresh at ESP Botanicals will vary in color. Our formulation always remains the same.
Q: I see beads of oil on my balm (or soap), does this mean its going bad?
A: No, it’s not going bad if you see any beads of oil. This is merely the Shea Butter re-expressing part of itself as the natural oil that it is. It is perfectly fine and good for you, and occurs due to several factors including temperature, density, percentage of oil in the balm and natural variance due to the fact that we are not using chemical emulsifiers to pollute, pervert or force the Shea Butter to behave in ways nature doesn’t intend.
Q: Are the products safe to use for pregnant women?
A. Yes and No. The Grace line is very potent and not recommend for pregnant or nursing women. Women who are pregnant or nursing should stick to the Beginnings product line. We also have a Mommie to Be soap.
