I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful lady today. She owns a local (Indy) business called Simply Saidah’s Natural Skin Care. She brought me a complete box full of samples to try and I love everything so far! (You ALL know how picky I am about skin care products) I’m not a paid spokesperson, I just want to share this amazing product with you all! Discount Code sscara will give you 5% off! Her products can also be found in local stores such as The Good Earth, Indianapolis and Blush Salon, Fishers. She told me today- “Being beautiful should be simple.” So true! And let me tell you, she must know what she’s doing because her skin is gorgeous! www.simplysaidahs.com Please keep reading below for more info.
Simply Saidah’s Natural Skin Care products are unlike any other. That is because they are not only enriched with the world’s finest and purest ingredients, but because they are steeped and fostered in love.
Like the pit of an avocado, Shea Butter is derived from the kernels of the Shea Nut tree in West Africa. Shea Butter has been used for centuries by Africans to obtain and maintain skin that radiates and is beautifully flawless.
With this knowledge coupled with the recipes and tips on mixing oils, passed down from my mother, I was inspired to birth a product that would help countless people suffering from various skin conditions including dry skin. As a young child, I was badly burned on my face and chest. Refusing conventional medical treatment provided by doctors, my mother miraculously healed me with her very own mixture of natural oils, butters, and gels. She tirelessly bathed me in her remedies blessed by Mother Nature’s and over time, my skin healed better than any skin-graph any doctor could ever provide.
Now over forty years later, my mother’s tried and true conglomerations of natural butters and oils have continued to thrive through Simply Saidah’s Natural Skin Care product line. Simply Saidah’s Natural Skin Care line began when my daughter was experiencing severely dehydrated and dry skin.
My daughter was a die-hard gymnast. Gymnastics caused her to experience severely dry, dull, rough, and dehydrated skin on both the hands and feet. After many years, this skin condition became chronic. She tried every skincare product specifically made for this condition to no avail. Nothing seemed to penetrate and moisturize her skin back to it’s original elasticity and suppleness.
As my mother did before me, I began using raw, unrefined Shea Butter with a mixture of my favorite organic oils and essential oils, to create a moisturizer for the entire body. Within a week of using the butter I formulated, my daughter’s skin transformed into skin that was deeply moisturized, supple, polished, and soft. Her skin glowed…she glowed! Amazed with the results, I began to share my butter with family and friends and the positive feedback I received left me elated.
It is with much gratitude, that I have now embarked on a journey to share these skin care products with the world. My daughter, Lisa, has been my source of inspiration throughout the entire process and for that I am eternally grateful. When you use Simply Saidah’s Natural Skin Care products, you can rest assure that every aspect of the production of this line was made with complete love and care, for my deepest wish is for everyone to shine…both inside and out!
