What We Love about Dr. Chidi's Rx Daily Moisturizing Cream and Intense Therapy Cream Ingredients.

There have been so many posts about the benefits of Shea butter and other all natural oils. But do you know how each of these natural oils and butter contribute to create the perfect All Natural Moisturizer for dry skin?

Shea Butter:

Shea butter is obviously the star of the show. For centuries it has been used in Africa for skin care. Its popularity has grown and is now famous all around the world.

By itself, shea butter it is rich and very thick and all natural. But, realistically speaking, it is not easy to use. We all prefer a cream that is easy to spread. Shea Butter in Dr. Chidi's Rx - Shea Butter Skin Care products adds the expected rich, healing and moisturizing properties that we all need and love. We formulate with a generous amount of shea butter resulting in a thick cream that is long lasting and non-greasy. It won't clog pores and doesn't have an over-powering appearance or scent.

Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil should be your friend by now if you've ever ventured into the natural skin care world. Its many benefits include long lasting hydration that is also light weight. I has a pleasant mild and rich scent that is loved by all. It can be added in high amounts without overwhelming the formula. It is by far the most versertile oil in the natural skin care world. It won't clog pores.

Olive Oil:

Olive oil is rich and thick but not as thick as shea butter. I balances out the coconut and shea butter and creates a cream that is neither too thin nor too thick. By itself, it is great on skin and hair for moisture retention and shine. Like coconut oil, it is readily available and is a priceless gem to always have on hand.

Red Palm Oil:

Palm oil, like shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa for skin care. I rememeber my grandmother using it on her skin, and her skin always had a healthy glow. Palm oil in Dr. Chidi's Rx is what gives our creams it rich yellow color. The rich vitamins and minerals shines through in the red fireworks of palm oil. An all natural white body cream is great, but a yellow cream is awesome! No artificial dyes needed, thank you ma'am!

Stearic Acid and Emulsifying Wax:

Our moisturizing creams work wonders becasue they combine the power of water and natural oils to create a healing miracle cream. It would be impossible to achieve a stable cream without the help of our plant derived emulsifiers.

Xanthan Gum:

Xanthan gum at the perfect amout is the secret sauce that you need to make the cream glide so silky and smoothly. It makes the cream spreadable and luxurious. Trust me. Xanthan gum is a natural edible product and it is widely used in the pastry baking industry, go figure.

Vitamin E Oil:

Vitamin E is an antioxidant made by nature. It serves as a natural preservative and as a key anti-aging ingredient for health skin. No good skin care product is complete without Vitamin E.

Natural Preservative - Optiphen Plus:

Optiphen plus is a natural plant derived preservative that is composed of 3 ingredients - Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid. We love it because it has been studied and is safe per strict European Union safety standards. Also, it is paraben free and formaldehyde free. Since our cream contains the all mighty water, optiphen plus is here to prevent the growth of unwanted germs that may spoil a perfectly good products.


Water is our saving grace. Without water, we would be locking in dryness instead of moisture. We need adequate moisture for healthy skin. That is why Dr. Chidi made sure that her creams contains natures #1 moisturizer - Water. Although typical body butters are great, they are not as effective as Dr. Chidi's creams in healing, hydrating or moisturizing dry and very dry skin.

Fragrance Free Vs Pure Lavender Essential Oil:

Some people love fragrances and some people absolutely do not. We recommend Fragrance Free for children always and for those who are sensitive or allergic to scents. With our fragrane free creams, you can be worry free.

For those who love fragrances and just must have scent, the best option is to use a pure essential oil. Pure Lavender Essential oil is the safest bet. It is even safe to use topically in pregnancy. Enjoy our Daily moisturizing cream made with Pure Lavender Essential oil and dream that you are running through a lovely and fragrant field of lavenders.

In summary, each ingredient had a unique role to play in bringing you the Best Natural Dry Skin Moisturizer. it is Created by a Pharmacist (Dr. Chidi) with love and utmost care and with your health and wellness in mind.
