I hope unrefined Shea butter might be able to give some comfort and I intend to use it in summer time too. Fingers crossed.

Be sure to report back. I use it all year round. Just use more during the winter.

I found the parcel delivered at home when I came back from office yesterday. I took a day off today so was indoors and have used Shea butter diligently these last 24 hrs. Hands do look nourished and skin a bit healthier today.

Real test will happen tomorrow when I report to work and stay outdoors. By the look of things, I think it will help me beat the effects of harsh winter.

Thanks for the tip,

"I've heard some state that unrefined Shea can go "off" and that may be the case but I keep it in smallish two oz jars and have never had one go rancid. (Keep the big tub in the refrigerator)".

I had 1 lav scented shea butter unrefined from MW. It was a PIF and I thought the scent was off, (it DID work great though),
didn't buy any after that but will do now with refrigerator stowing in mind.

Celestino would NEVER steer us wrong
