we are shea plus essential oils. Others use a little bit of shea and oil carriers, lots of water, alcohol, emulsifiers to blend the them, and chemical preservatives to make their product last for years on the shelf. Such products gives the illusion of moisture but only leaves your hair and skin dryer and thirstier. It's a marketing and profit making gimmick.
Here at Dr. O we do not such things! There is no water content in our product, and we are not just about shea. We use good oils in our products.
