African Products that do Double-Duty - Part 1

One thing that I love about African health and beauty products is the practicality of everything. Almost every African butter or oil has multiple practical uses. For example, did you know your shea butter can make a great diaper rash cream? What about neem oil as an insect repellent? Get more out of your products and have more to offer to your customers when you know some of the many uses of your products.

I will be updating this regularly, but here are just a few products that do double-duty:

4 oz. Jar of Pure She Butter
