Shea butter is great for dry skin. Olive oil is rich in minerals, proteins and vitamins, especially in Vitamin E, which is a potent anti-oxidant. Olive oil also replenishes moisture and nutrients, lost through exposure to the sun. It has been used topically to maintain healthy skin for many thousands of years.
Combined with shea butter, this is a rich buttery emollient which keeps the skin supple and silky smooth. This is a particularly good skin food for sensitive or dry skin. Apply it as often as required to any dry skin patches. This tub of skin softening goodness also makes a lovely rich hand and foot butter for any areas of hard, tough skin.
