Once the mixture is homogeneous, add the two tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel.
If you want to perfume your recipe, you can add 5 drops of lavander essential oil. Essential oils should be handled with care, we advise you to refer to the precautions for use.

This homemade after sun recipe moisturizes and repairs your skin thanks to the allantoin present in Shea Butter, which, beyond its soothing properties is very restorative. Its action is supported by Aloe Vera, which is ideal for calming and repairing red or burned skins while providing a pleasing-to-apply gelly texture.
