During the summer months, Aloe Vera can easily become a must have in your daily skincare routine. Aloe Vera has alkalizing properties which help to balance your skin’s PH levels. Here at Baraka Shea Butter, we naturally believe that Shea Butter needs to be added to that list! SO, with this dynamic duo, your skin will thank you this summer!
