I found this shea butter particularly good for my very dry skin, especially on my hands and feet, I’ve actually been taking this to work with me, as I work in a library with a lot of paper and books, I re-apply this half way through the day and it’s prevented me from getting any paper cuts, at the same time keeping my hands feeling really smooth. I also like to keep my nails looking fabulous, this worked really well in keeping my cuticles healthy.
I found it very good for treating cuts, seeing as I have a cat who likes to play rough! Also wonderful for using on my little nephews soft skin on his cuts and grazes. This salve is also gentle enough to use on babies skin. It is a very good alternative to using vaseline.
Deluxe Shea Butter is fair trade practice and sustainably harvested. It sources its A-grade ’nkuto butter' directly from female co-operatives that operate within the Kumbungo district of Ghana. The process, which draws upon traditional methods, involves the collection, cleaning, segregation, drying, and pounding of the Shea nuts into a paste where it is then mixed with water and agitated by hand to produce a form of curd. This top layer is collected and then purified into an oil and left to cool and solidify, resulting in unadulterated, pure Shea butter.
This is my new go to product for my feet and especially cracked heels, it might save me a few trips of having to get so many pedicures!
The business began operations in 2007 when the two founding brothers formed a partnership with their mother and Auntie, the late Nana Adubea Yeboah II, Traditional Chief of Aduamoa in Kwahu, Ghana. Initially supplying Shea butter to the Ghanaian community in their adopted hometown of Adelaide, South Australia. Increased conciousness of the benefits of Shea Butter has seen Deluxe Shea Butter Australia grow steadily from local roots to be an international presence.
A wonderfully soothing and effective salve, I love the natural scent of it too.
