Cold winter weather wreaks havoc with our skin. Over the years I’ve tried numerous remedies — from moisturizing skin lotions to using mayonnaise for dry cracked hands. Thankfully, I’ve found better, healthier solutions.
Vermont Soapworks, whose organic products I’ve profiled before, has a great solution to help heal dry winter skin. Its Shea Butter Bar, a moisturizing bath and body bar, is made from a base of organic oils such as palm, coconut, olive and palm kernel and raw shea nut butter.
