The wonders of Shea Butter

There is much written on the benefits of Shea butter..and I'm pleased that what is written is True,

You really cant get a better natural moisturizer for your skin.
Rich in Vitamin A & E which balances and normalizes the skin. Particularly beneficial for damaged dry or sun-exposed skin. Vitamin A has soothing and hydrating properties, which helps provide the skin with collagen which prevents premature wrinkles (Excellent) premature facial lines (Wonderful) and premature slackened skin. (Perfect)
Vitamin F will acts as a skin protector and revitalize the skin. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin (ideal for builders & gardeners hands) and can help dry or damaged hair. (ideal when too much heat or chemical products have been used)...and it does not clog pores or block hair shaft..brilliant!
(Don't forget it applying to hair which is fine - rinse well)

Most of our skin care range is centered around Shea butter - because it really is the best natural moisturizer and balm..try our Shea Body Butter with Vanilla or Chocolate extracts (Don't forget - may smell good enough to eat - please don't!)
This month sees the return of our Body butters which are hand blended using the finest Fair trade she butter,coconut oil and cocoa butter.
Much has stayed the same in terms of its ingredients however the amount supplied ranges from 120ml to 250ml and the packaging is altered slightly.


Choose from
Unrefined and unscented No refining or bleaching! High in many fatty acids, which are needed to keep skins moisture and elasticity.

Neroli & Rose - Deeply moisturising for dry skin and sensitive skin.

and NEW Shea Butter with Hemp - A  skin firming body butter that contains shea butter and hemp which is rich in omega 3 and 6 which can help improve the suppleness of the skin. Hand made with added Frankincense and Rose essential oil this butter has excellent healing and regenerative properties.

Please Help..we know you can

In the past Belenos therapy has often run auctions of charity sales where the final value of the sale has been donated to charity - and we have always been amazed at the generosity the shoppers of Britain show towards good causes even in times of austerity.

We are asking for your help & support once more and we know you wont disappoint.,especially when we ask you to support Daniel & Michala who have been working hard over the past 6 months to be fit and ready to take part in the London Marathon 2011...sacrifies have been made and I know it was particularly difficult for Michala to resist her beloved chocolates and sweets during the festive period,but in the end they both were inspired and spurred on by the great work that their chosen charity 'The Princess Royal Trust does with young carer's.





                                                                  
Please take some time to read what has inspired Dan & Michala....while we add some featured products that will donate 10% to this much deserved cause..


Hello everyone!
We are running the London Marathon 2011 for the Princess Royal Trust for Carers. Please take a few minutes to read about the amazing work they do for Carers especially YOUNG Carers:
...A young Carer is a child or young person under the age of 18 carrying out significant caring tasks and assuming a level of responsibility for another person, which would normally be taken by an adult.
There are six million people in the UK looking after a loved-one who is sick, disabled or suffering from a mental health problem - some as young as five years old!!!!! (Can you imagine having to look after a parent at that age or if you have children - having them looking after you every day!!)
What Carers have in common is the selflessness to put their family member needs before their own, but they face an on-going life of isolation, ill-health and poverty.
The Princess Royal Trust for Carers has been fighting to provide Carers with the support they so desperately need.

  • There are 175,000 Young Carers in the UK.
  • 50,000 children and young people in the UK look after someone with a mental health problem.
  • 28% of Young Carers have serious problems in secondary school.
  • 68% of Young Carers are bullied in school.
  • Nearly half of Young Carers questioned said there was not a single teacher at their school who knew they were a Young Carer.

Skin & Essential Oils

The most common skin care and cold pressed oils we sell are those for ageing & mature skin types.
the most common questions we receive are ... ' whats best for my aging skin'..or ' my skin is really dry and nothing seems to work'

Our Skin is a living organism that is constantly under threat and being damaged by ever changing environments. Throughout our lifetime our skin type will change, and react to certain factors,such as chemical use, using artificial and synthetic oils, diet, life style, weather, artificial lighting ,sun damage, pregnancy and of course age.
Our skin will even change the season change, this is usually obvious as we change from summer to autumn/winter as we crank up heating systems,and turn off the air con units. Your skin can also, without warning become sensitive at any time.

We have a number of wonderful natural and paraben free creams for dry and mature skins all containing the right balance of essential and cold pressed fruit and nut oils.
