Why Unscented? All About Our Shea Butter Soap.

Do you have skin allergies? Do scents irritate you, even organic ones? Maybe it has some hidden, skin irritating ingredients-- check out this post where we dive into what some of those might be. 


So now that you know that to avoid, let's talk about a bar that could be for you-- this unscented soap bar !

yellow bird unscented shea

Using only 5 pure ingredients, this soap is made right here in the U.S. Each batch is prepared by hand so we can ensure you get the best quality.

But what about the ingredients themselves - what do they do and why do we recommend these for sensitive skin? Well here are the top 3 ingredients that even the most sensitive (from newest skin to oldest skin!) that your skin will LOVE!

1.Shea Butter (The STAR of this soap)

This amazing substance comes from the seeds of the Shea tree. A butter that protects and strengthens skin, it boosts your collagen production, acts as a natural sunblock, and moisturizes the skin with fatty acids and essential vitamins. Hypoallergenic, Shea butter is ideal for children and can even be used for diaper rash!


Packed with essential vitamins and fatty acids, this butter helps to keep your skin, hair, and lips smooth and moisturized!

Heals and tightens

Vitamin E, carotenoids, and flavonoids all work together to heal the skin. Shea butter can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin and restore beautiful, youthful skin. And because of its high amount of cinnamic acid, Shea also acts as a mild sunscreen!


When harvested and prepared without chemicals, this nut butter is perfect for those with sensitive skin! In its natural form, Shea butter is a soothing butter that is safe for most skin types. In fact, there have beenno documented cases of an inflammatory reaction being set off by Shea butter, ever!


2.Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains many fatty acids, which are necessary for healthy skin cells! Your body doesn’t produce these specific fatty acids, you have to get them through eating or topically applying them. In addition to moisturizing skin with fatty acids, coconut oilstrengthens the epidermis, meaning your skin will stay healthy and smooth.

3. Palm Oil (RSPO Certified Sustainable)

Roughlyhalf of palm oil is made up of fatty acids! As we’ve already discussed, fatty acids can do wonders for your skin. Palm oil also contains flavonoids andcarotenes, both of which can induce positive effects on the health of your skin.

The combination of these three oils creates a gentle, restorative soap bar for your skin! With the antioxidant, emollient, and anti-inflammatory properties found in these oils, your skin will be loved. Perfect for those who suffer from dry skin, are allergic to essential oils, or for your little ones!

We know what it’s like to deal with allergies and sensitivities. That’s why we wanted to find a solution that was both safe and easy to attain. Now, you canorder our bar here or take advantage of 2-day shipping and order on Amazon!
