I slice off a piece about the size of a bar of soap and use this as is for a facial and body moisturizer. It is solid at room temperature, but melts on contact with skin. Fantastic for dry skin, and there’s only one ingredient. It’s inexpensive, natural, there are no chemicals, and you can cut down on all the plastic jars and bottles in your bathroom! Great for travel too. I keep my bar in a covered soap dish, and I store the unused portion in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
