Frazer Parfum Shea Butter (with Ylang Ylang)
This is a new ylang ylang-scented version of the popular Frazer Shea Butter. Sustainably produced and handmade by the ladies of northern Ghana, it's a beautiful, ivory-coloured natural salve extracted from the nut of the traditional African Butyrospermum parkii tree by crushing and boiling at a low temperature, over a long period of time. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feel, and comes in a beautiful, sustainable, hand-turned Tamboti wood (Spirostachys africana, known as African sandalwood) container. The sandalwood canister imparts a distinct spicy scent which intermingles naturally with the scent of the nut butter.
This is the highest quality 100% shea butter scented with African Soliflore Ylang Ylang - gentle on skin, with a multitude of uses. Keep in a cool place. Certified organic. 100% vegetal. All natural and biodegradable. No animal testing.
Heidi's note: I was excited when Tammy told me she'd do an ylang ylang scented version of her beautiful shea butter for us. The tiniest bit goes a very long way, and it is perfect for everyday use as a moisturizer. Use your fingertips to work a pencil-eraser sized dab of shea butter into the palm of your opposite hand before applying in a thin layer just after you shower, and/or throughout the day on your hands. It takes a minute or two to absorb into the skin.
