Vermont Soapworks Offers African Shea Butter

November 22, 2005

Middlebury, VT-based Vermont Soapworks now offers handcrafted shea butter derived from tribal craftswomen in Ghana. While teaching sustainable agribusiness skills to rural villagers in Ghana, Vermont Soapworks owners Sandy Lincoln and Larry Plesent discovered this fine quality, natural shea butter, which is derived from wild shea trees on the savannahs of sub-Saharan West Africa.
Vermont Soapworks executives said shea butter is rich in moisture and vitamins that improve skin hydration, heal wounds and protect skin against the sun, wind and cold. Shea butter can be used in lotions, soaps, salves, lip balms, cold sore gels, lipstick, wrinkle creams and more. More info: www.vtsoap.com.
