Tropical Butter Cream
This lovely cream has ingredients that are of 99% natural plant origin. The 1% synthetic ingredient is Optiphen, a
broad spectrum antimicrobial preservative which provides protection
against microbial growth from bacteria, yeast and mold.
The name of this cream originates from the two main ingredients, shea butter and cocoa butter, which come from the nut of trees grown in tropical regions. Scars, blemishes and imperfections have been known to heal from these nourishing butters. Also included are Vitamin E and C, plus Japanese Green Tea to help combat free radicals. Safe to use on your face, but I highly recommend getting it unscented or lightly scented. Paraben Free. Vegan. No artificial dyes or colors added.
