Preparation method:
Transfer the shea butter from phase A to a heat-resistant container and melt in a water bath. After melting, remove from the heat source and allow it to cool slightly until it reaches body temperature. 

Add the ingredients from phase B, mix well and place in the fridge (or even in the freezer for a few minutes) until the composition hardens.
Then add the ingredients from phase C and mix thoroughly. The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container.

It is a rich cream that contains a delicate exfoliating agent (hibiscus powder) that also has anti-aging properties. It is basically a 2 in 1 cream that is used as a mask followed by a gentle scrub. It is especially suitable for dry and very dry, mature skin.
Apply a moderate layer on a clean and dry face and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Start exfoliating with circular movements of suitable intensity. The face is then rinsed with lukewarm water and wiped by dabbing with a towel. Leaves skin nourished, clean and velvety.
