Useful for burns, all dry and irritated skin conditions (except for Poison Ivy, Oak, etc., which contain irritating oils that need to be removed with Tea Tree Castile Liquid Soap). Recommended for wrinkle smoothing and prevention, and for the treatment of sun-damaged skin. After much trial and tribulations, not to mention innumerable delays, we have established a reliable supply chain from Northern Ghana. For your safety, this completely natural USDA certified organic shea butter has been specially filtered to remove any naturally occurring latex found in the kernel of the shea nut. We do not know the exact shelf life of the product, but we do expect it to be at least double that of market quality shea.
