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!
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.
