In January and February of 2004, my partner Sandy Lincoln and I did a survey of shea butter extraction techniques and marketing methods in Upper Guinea for USAID. We met, and talked with hundreds of people. Every once in a while I would spot a person who looked younger than everyone else. It was hard to place their age. I would single out these people and asked if they rubbed shea butter into their skin. They would often hesitate and blush - it was their secret!

Fresh shea butter made by traditional methods is full of all kinds of botanical goodies like allantoin (found in aloe and comfrey), and circuminoids (anti-cancer compounds found in cumin) and catechins. 

We recommend applying shea butter at night, so it has time to soak into the skin. Use as lip balm, ointment, salve base, soap additive, and more. 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. This is completely natural, unrefined "raw" shea butter and carries USDA NOP organic certification. This shea butter was produced under the direct supervision of Dr. Lovett PhD., and was processed in the villages in a manner that gives the shea butter extra long shelf life. 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. We also use a proprietary process to remove the naturally occurring latex, and are the exclusive source for shea butter of this type.

The quality and consistency of Vermont Soap's shea butter is better than any other I have found. This size is especially convenient to keep in your purse as an alternative to lip balm. I would really appreciate it if you guys would consider putting your shea butter into lip balm tubes so that it would be possible to apply the product without getting it all over my fingers. Now that would be a superb product! Keep up the great work!

I bought this tiny pot of shea butter at the Big E in W. Spfld, MA because I forgot my lip balm at home. It works great as a lip balm but I especially love it as a cuticle conditioner. It moisturizes, softens and heals the dry skin. It's amazing stuff!
