I was looking for unscented shea butter to moisturize my children's skin - all have dry skin & some eczema. This product helped skin stay moisturized much longer than other creams and was very easy to apply.

My skin, especially on my legs and knees, becomes so dry in the winter that it flakes off. Conventional moisturizing lotions do nothing; creams work a bit better. When I saw this product I decided to try it, and it is fantastic. You have to work a bit to rub it into your skin, as the consistency is waxy, but it is worth the effort. My skin feels so soft and smooth, and it stays that way for days. From now on I will not use any other product on my dry skin. The added bonus is that it is a fair-trade product, so the money goes to the women who make it, rather than some conglomerate that pays them fifty cents a day. I highly recommend this product to anyone with dry skin. It's the best I've ever used.

I thought this would be more of whipped lotion with the title of "body butter". It is definitely more of a balm. It does leave you skin really hydrated but it is really thick and you have to apply it for a while and let it soak in. I won't be re-ordering this.
I have dry skin and a highly allergic husband. I have been trying different things for years and they always bothered him. Olive oil helped but the grease was way too messy. Since this was unscented i decided to give it a try. I can tell you that this brand is TRULY unscented. Although it is called shea "butter" and slides on easily it does NOT leave your skin greasy. It just seems to leave a protective barrier on your skin. I am eager to see how it works this winter when the wind is blowing. Best of all, it does not bother my husband in any way. He will use it himself this winter. As one who used to get cosmetics from bargain stores this seemed a little pricey when I purchased it. However I now know quality counts. Plus it takes such a tiny amount it actually is a real bargain. And Thanks for the finding these world stock products. When I get them I know I am helping a country develop itself and most of the time it is a uniquely different and good product. Keep this one coming Overstock.
