Celestino, I cannot thank you enough for the USB suggestion. This has been a quantum leap in my wetshaving experience on the order of discovering wetshaving in general, proper lather and razor technique, witch hazel and two-band badger/Semogue boar/synthetic brushes.

I have used USB the last two weeks and can't say enough how good my post-shave feel is without greasiness or irritation. It does, as mentioned above, work well on all skin.

I bought 16oz of unrefined/raw organic shea butter for 9.99 shipped from douknowjc on ebay. It shipped in a simple, plastic bag. They do not sell smaller quantities other than 1oz or 1lb (and on up to 19 tons for $52K USD).

Thank you, Celestino. I'm afraid USB will make any other post-shave product obsolete or unneeded in my den.

I agree. Now why couldn't I have found USB BEFORE I amassed all these balms and lotions??

Harry, it should be fine. Shea butter will only usually melt under direct sunlight or in very high temperatures, i believe. 100 F might not be hot enough to melt it if it is in a container.
Good to see you are considering ordering some. i hope you enjoy it.

I once microwaved a small amount of USB to see what would happen (yea, I was one of those kids). It does melt down to a liquid form. I mention this as another way to apply it.

Harry, congrats, my friend, and i hope you enjoy it. It should last you a very, very long time. You can also share that with your wife/partner and your kids for any skin issues such as sunburn, cuts, insect bites, etc. Let me know how you find it.

I started giving them away. At first I missed the scents and sensations...now, not as much as before.
