Our 1.7 oz. Shea & Jojoba Whipped Body Butter contains shea butter derived from the African Karite tree. The shea nuts are collected and processed by women of West African tribes. We have made a conscious decision to purchase our unrefined shea directly from Ghana rather than from third party countries in Europe. Doing so keeps the money in this poorest of countries, and gives them a powerful stand in the world trade market. We have added golden jojoba oil, vitamin E, a light fragrance and preservative. This body butter is great for softening the effects of wrinkles, dry chapped or chafed skin, rough heels and elbows, overworked and dry hands and even great for dry and chapped lips. A little goes a long way and stays with you. This product is a best seller!
