Melyon Body Lotion
Melyon’s Body Lotion takes inspiration from centuries of women in West Africa, using shea butter and moringa oil. It is an iconic skin-softening ritual that has passed down for generations. The harvesting and production of shea butter have traditionally remained firmly in the hands of West African women, and that is why in Africa, shea butter is also called “women’s gold”.
The combination of Moringa oil and Shea butter deeply moisturize and restore dry, sensitive skin. It protects the skin from a harsh climate with daily repair. Which makes Melyon Body Lotion the perfect moisturizer for all ages.
In the West African culture, you use shea butter for almost everything. One of the west African motherhood-hacks is to massage the child with shea butter after their evening bath every night, which helps the children sleep soundly.
“I believe most of the West African children and adults has a strong relation to shea butter. When I was a kid, I remember how important it was to moisturize. It was unacceptable to be dry either before you go to school or after your bath. But it has its reasons, darker skin is thicker and needs more moisture with good active ingredients to stay hydrated. My parents passed down how to do my skincare routine, and since then, I always carry some lotion with me.” Says founder, Roger Dupé.
