I purchased this ointment at a dollar store locally. I am not sure what it would cost at a department store, but I am sure I saved a substantial amount. I saw a price of $5.89 on the Internet. It contains Shea Butter and Tea Tree Oil. I had heard of African Shea Butter and knew it was a "luxury" item, but had never tried it before. The first thing I noticed when I opened the jar was that the ointment was clear (like Vaseline) and not white or creamy. I was pleasantly surprised. The fragrance is a pleasant, not "perfume" smelling. It actually reminds me a little of lemons. It is very, very rich! This ointment promises intense help for feet - rough, dry, callused areas - and contains natural plant enzymes to exfoliate dry skin.
The directions were to apply the ointment nightly. After just one application I could see a difference. The ointment is thick, but, again, it absorbs very well and does not leave your skin "greasy". Just apply a thin layer and put on a pair of socks. While you sleep, the ointment goes to work softening your skin. This is a great product to purchase to get ready for the warm weather and sporting sandals, or to keep your feet soft year round. I am going to check back at the dollar store to see if they have any more and, if so, get another jar. I like this so much, I think I will try it on my elbows and knees too. I am impressed! I am very happy with this ointment and would recommend it to anyone who would like to soften their feet. I give this product a definite thumbs up!
