BUTTER FOR DRY CRACKED DAMAGED SKIN
This healing hand and heel salve works to mend dry, cracked skin and heels. It seal in moisture for very dry skin, prevent skin from cracking and hastens the healing of already cracked dry skin by providing antibacterial action of neem, frankincense, sea buckthorn and turmeric while keeping skin lubricated and protected. Especially good for people who frequently wash their hands like nurses and doctors who need a little bit of natural non-drying antibacterial action. A great moisturizer for the winter months when dry hands get sore and painful. Wonderful for keeping diabetic feet happy and healthy and keeping feet from getting cracked or infected. All around perfect sealing and healing lotion that lasts a long time.
MEND ME BUTTER
I pack my Mend Me Butter with as many skin healing, moisturizing, bacteria fighting and fungus fighting ingredients as I can. I created this for those who suffer from cracked heels, hands, fingers and elbows as well as those who simply have very dry skin. This butter stays where you put it, warding off further drying and protecting overly stressed skin from further damage and infection so your skin can begin to mend those painful cracks and dry spots while preventing them from getting worse. While choosing my ingredients I especially wanted to meet the high needs of those people with diabetes who need skin treatments that keep their skin, and feet, especially healthy and free from soreness or infection.
Even better when applied to damp skin!

Rice Bran is high in tocopherols (Vit E) which helps skin healing. It is also a significant source of the antioxidant ?-oryzanol, and squalene which keeps skin soft and supple.

Shea butter is collected in Western Africa, usually by women who turn it into raw shea butter, soaps and other products. It has been traded throughout Africa as a skin healer since the 14th century. Shea butter protects skin by stimulating structural protein production. Its high stearic acid content promotes and protects skin while the high level of triterpene alcohols in shea butter reduce inflammation. Shea also contains ultraviolet absorbing cinnamic acid esters, and lupeol, which helps prevent the effects of skin aging by blocking the degradation of skin proteins.
Scientific evidence suggests that cocoa beans and butter contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components that help skin health and offer skin protection. Cocoa is richer in phenolic and flavonoid contents than most other foods which give it a greater antioxidant capacity. Cocoa contains several botanical agents, including theobromine, which neutralizes reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated in the skin as a consequence of UV exposure. Flavanols may influence healing properties and offer a wide range of health benefits. Cocoa has a long history of being used to treat skin diseases, psoriasis, acne and wound healing. The “International Journal of Cosmetic Science” published a study which found that the polyphenols in cocoa butter improved skin elasticity and tone.
Obviously Coconut oil significantly improves skin hydration but its medium-chain fatty acid constituents (including lauric acid, capric acid, and others) provide an antimicrobial effect by making it difficult for bacterias, funguses and viruses to grow. E-WAX
An extremely stable emulsifier and allows us to bring water into our oil and butter. Oils and butters alone aren’t actually able to moisturize, rather they seal moisture in.
