Bookkeeper's Butter Intense Hand and Cuticle Salve with Lavender & Peppermint Essential Oils
Bookkeeper's Butter Intense Hand and Cuticle Salve
Having worked as a book seller back in the proverbial day, I know all too keenly the havoc a paper-based job can have on one's hands. It sucks the moisture out of your skin, leaving your fingers raw, cracked, and downright miserable. Accountants, librarians, archivists, graduate students, fellow book sellers... this one's for you.
Bookkeeper's Butter to the rescue! Packed with nourishing shea butter & a panoply of skin-pampering oils, Bookkeeper's Butter is an intense hand & cuticle treatment for desperate times. I selected a very specific range of oils for maximum absorption speed, meaning Bookkeeper's Butter won't leave you stuck with greasy fingers when you need to get back to work. Gently scented with soothing lavender & peppermint essential oils, a little Bookkeeper's Butter goes a really long way - just a tiny dab massaged into dry, cracked skin & cuticles provides instant, non-greasy moisture. It can also pull double-duty as an intense lip balm. The jar might seem small, but it will go the distance! This particular formulation is vegan-friendly, using plant-based candelilla wax & no preservatives. The vitamin E oil will protect against oxidation, but please, keep Bookkeeper's Butter away from excess heat, & be sure to use dry clean hands to apply.
This listing is for a dense 1.8 ounces of Bookkeeper's Butter, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or synthetic fragrance oils. I pack Bookkeeper's Butter in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Mentha Piperata (Peppermint) Oil
Butter up, buttercup!

If your hands are red and dry from all the washing and sanitizing, I can not recommend Bookkeeper's Butter more highly. I only started heavy application yesterday after my order arrived and I am already seeing a difference in my skin (yay healing). Smells fab too!
Buttery Goodness !

This stuff is GREAT ! Melts on your hands just like warm butter. I am around cardboard and frequent hand washings at work, I've been using it for about a week now, and I do feel the difference. The smell is faint, but lovely. Highly recommend !
This is awesome!

I work with boxes and paper all day everyday. I use hand sanitizer at least 20 times a day at work. My hands get really dry and cracked. The first time I put this on all the dryness was gone. I don't have to use lotion every time I wash my hands. I've been using it several times a day and sharing it with people I work with. It's amazing. The smell is super nice. I've already started recommending this to everyone. I will have to keep this with me all the time.

I bought this from a suggestion from a friend and she was right! Absolutely heals, softens, moisturizes..not greasy, does not stain. Even overnight, in the morning, my hands are still soft. After washing my hands..they are still soft..the water beads up a bit..which tells me, this soaks into the skin..does not lay on top of it. A little bit goes a long way...I use it several times a day..

During the winter my hands, especially my knuckles, get really dry and crack - I knit a lot during the winter months which doesn't help. Bookkeeper's Butter is now keeping my hands nice and soft and smells divine. A little goes a long way and it soaks in nicely never leaving a greasy feeling.
Soothing and softening

This is a great conditioning salve. As a librarian I do handle paper still in 2015 and my hands need some TLC. It smells like a beautiful spa and really softens. It is not too greasy though it is composed of shea and natural oils. A little goes a long way, too.
