The Miraculous Benefits of Shea butter

What if I told you there’s a miraculous nut that could give you soft, beautiful skin? Would you believe me? Continue reading to learn about the benefits of using Shea butter.

Shea butter is an off-white or ivory colored fatty extract from the African Shea tree. Rich in vitamins and natural fatty acids, Shea helps add moisture to and nourishes the skin. This natural product helps the skin rebuild collagen, strengthening and softening the skin. It’s a natural anti-aging product that has the potential to reduce wrinkles.

Shea butter has other healing properties that may shock you. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it helps heal minor scrapes, cuts and burns. But that’s not all, it helps relieve rashes, sunburns as well as taking the sting out of bug bites.

Along with its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory components, Shea butter adds moisture to your skin, leaving it feeling soft and radiant. It hydrates and balances the skin, healing cracked lips, heels, elbows and knees.

So, where can I find this miraculous product?

Eugenia Shea, founded in 1999 by Eugenia Akuete and her daughter Naa-Salke Akuete, is a family ran enterprise. The founders dedicate themselves to giving fair wages and opportunities to female workers in Ghana. They’ve set up an education fund that donates 15% of their profits to help give a bright future to their employees.  Their website is as follows:

Eugenia Shea has a variety of products derived from the African Shea tree. These products are 100% natural and come in the form of Shea oils, butters and moisturizer. Depending your needs, Eugenia Shea offers three levels of Shea butter. First, there’s every day strength, it has some Shea. Another level available is the pregnancy strength. It has more Shea than every day strength and it helps fight against stretch marks. Then there’s the dermatological strength. This level has the most Shea and helps add moisture to the skin, even in cases of eczema and psoriasis. All Eugenia Shea products are fragrance free or have essential oils added, giving it a refreshing scent of your choice.

Eugenia means the origin of goodness. The “goodness” that comes from Shea butter, helps women of all ages feel amazing, radiant and beautiful.

Securus Technologies Is Doing Its Part To Change Prison Communication Services

Prisoners are a captive audience for companies that want to make extra money without working for it. Companies try to take advantage of the prison population, and many of those companies make a fortune doing just that. One service that has slipped under the radar of prison officials is the prison communication system. Men and women look forward to voice communication with loved ones, and several companies that provide telephone service to prisons play by their own set of rules. Securus America Technologies is not one of those companies.

Dallas-based Securus Technologies serves 3,450 law enforcement and correction agencies all over the United States. More than 1,200,000 inmates use the services that Securus provides. Securus is committed to information management, communications, public information and monitoring services and products, so everyone in the country is treated fairly.
CEO Rick Smith was recently interviewed by a news agency, and he reinforced the Securus position when it comes to criminal and civil justice technology. Smith said  on PR Newswire’s interview one inmate communication provider, GTL, was crossing the line and stooping below the integrity bar in order to line their own pockets. Smith said that Securus Technologies is dedicated to exposing the unjust practices of GTL, and the company will do that in a series of press releases over the next six months.

Mr. Smith said GTL is advancing the clock on prison calls by 15 to 36 seconds, and the company is charging higher rates because GTL knows it can get away with charging whatever they want. GTL also adds fees to the completed calls after the calls are rated. That is purely a money grabbing tactic that has to stop, according to Smith.

These unscrupulous charges have cost Louisiana taxpayers more than $1,240,000, and Securus will do everything it can to change GTL’s sketchy communication practices.

Andy Wirth Urges Cooler Heads In Olympic Valley Incorporation

Andy Wirth recently wrote in the Reno Gazette-Journal about how he wants to have cooler heads prevail in the fight over incorporation in the Olympic Valley. There is something very important about this because it pits two sides against each other. Andy Wirth wants to protect businesses and local land owners, and the people who want to institute a new government want to incorporate everything. Olympic Valley Incorporation argument should change, and Andy Wirth believes that he can help change the tone of the conversation.

Andy Wirth owns Squaw Valley Ski and multiple lodges in the area. He practically owns one whole mountain in the area near Lake Tahoe, but he does not want to see the Olympic Valley become one large town that all sits under the same government. There are people who have lived in the area for a long time, and Andy Wirth wants to make sure that he can protect every person who has been living in the area even longer than he has.

He has a lot of employees who are counting on the paychecks that he can provide, and the people living in the area will not be able to keep their own businesses going if they are paying more taxes to a bigger government. The concern in the incorporation fight is something that everyone has taken up. Both sides have been wondering how they can get their way, but Andy Wirth wants to start over with a brand new look at the talks.

Anyone who is trying to make a change in their community can do the work along with others in their community, and someone who wants to talk with everyone should do as Andy Wirth has done. He wants to hear from everyone in the community so that he can help create a plan that honors everyone.
