I have been using the Dove Cocoa Butter cream for two years now. I started using it when I discovered other Cocoa butter brands I was using made me my skin darker. Within weeks of using the Dove cocoa butter cream, it made my skin glow and moisturized my dry skin.
What makes the product unique and special compared to other coco butter creams I have used is the Sun Protection Factor (SPF). SPF simply refers to the number of hours one can stay under the sun without getting sunburned since SPF is a form of sunscreen. Clearly written on the lotion is SPF 24 which means that a user can stay in the sun 24 times longer than they usually can without protection. This was very essential to me as at the time I started using the product because of my business that kept me constantly exposed to the sun.
Most importantly, it protects the skin from Ultraviolet long wave (UVA) and Ultraviolet short wave (UVB) rays. This protects the skin from cancer which results from constant exposure to sunlight. Given the sunny climate of Africa, exposure to the sun is unavoidable. Africans basically sun bath all their lives. Exposure to sunlight can therefore translate to exposure to cancer. So, with Dove Cocoa butter cream, this problem is taken care of.
It is suitable for all skin types and it comes in a lovely coffee brown package.
So far, I have not noticed any negative effect from using Dove Cocoa Butter cream which is why I can recommend it to you out there. Dove Cocoa butter can be purchased from any supermarket around you. It is very affordable and pocket friendly costing between #650 to #700 depending on the supermarket.
