Doing my research for a fairly traded, unrefined shea butter to use as a night occlusive in my skincare routine led me to this. I have oily, acne-prone skin that loves shea butter - I take a very tiny amount and warm it up, then spread and pat it into my skin as a final layer. A little goes a long way, and too much will just be greasy. I think this container will last me over a year, so if you think you won't use that much then consider getting the smaller one instead.
If you're worried about the shea butter breaking you out, Kariderm is from West African shea, which has a lower oleic acid content (can be comedogenic) compared to other regions.

We use this on my daughter’s extremely dry, cracked hands. It works well, but harder to apply than a hand balm with other ingredients too. This is solid in the bar and you’ll need to dig a bit out and warm it in your hands. It is great quality though and an awesome natural solution to really dry skin!

Its a fiver for me ! I suggest kariderm shea butter be a staple for any skin care shelf ---women or men. It is soothing for the skin, nurtures, and it is a basic moisturizer for me. One does need to get used to rubbing some of this magic stuff between your hands to bring it to more of a liquid state. This takes only a second. Then gently press and smooth it on all over the face and. Feels a bit greasy going on. This is the richness of the Shea butter. BUT goes into the skin very quickly. Sometimes I do a quick dabbing over the face with a cloth. neck. For cold weather and somewhat dry indoor conditions, it adds fabulous protection. I use it at least 2 - 3 times a day. Great as night cream.. So for the price - its a mini goldmine. A tip: if your hair is feeling dry or overdone with product --just rub some of the shea butter between your hands and slide it through your hair. Your hair will love you !
