Why Did We Start this Craziness?
It all started in 2009 when a co-worker brought whipped shea butter to work that smelled fruity and slightly spicy. I was in heaven when I put it on my skin. From then on shea butter became my primary form of moisturizing my skin. Initially I only purchased raw shea butter from a local store and mixed it with mineral oil to get a good consistency.
In addition I was obsessed with getting natural products for my hair so I did a lot of research for options and realized that very few products on the market are 100% natural. I realized the only way to go natural was to make it at home. I experimented with oils and different products for two years until I had the opportunity to participate in a craft fair. I decided to make soap and whipped shea butter. I was pleased with the results and people were pleased with my products.
Over the last few years I never ceased in collecting items to experiment with and only a couple of months ago I decided to launch.
The Body Buffet was birthed out of six years of research and experimenting with natural products. I selected a food theme because, for me, making natural body products is similar to cooking and baking—another hobby.
