Shea Butter 100% Natural (Ghana)

RatingRatingRatingRatingRating
Average Product Rating: 4.7 / 5 (Based on 94 Customer Reviews)



This butter extracted from the Shea Nut is unrefined and not processed in any way. Therefore the product will have a mild nutty odor and various inconsistencies in color including darker spots and streaks of grey to ivory white. It is solid at room temperature and rather hard in consistency.

Common Uses: Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is known for its moisturizing and emollient properties. Rich in vitamins and fatty acids, it penetrates deeply into the epidermis and leaves a smooth, satiny finish. Shea Butter can be used to make massage butters, body butters, lip balms, and as a moisturizing agent in soaps and shaving creams.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 2 - 20 %
Balms: 5 – 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 1 – 10 %

When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Shelf Life: This butter should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of 1 year when stored properly.

This is less than half the price of cocoa butter, less than half the price of the competition, and shea butter with it's reputation in the islands - this product can't be beat for price and quality. Many of my friends use it straight out of the jar, excellent for ashy skin. It's a sweet smell like cocoa butter, but more licorice, but still as yummy. Beautiful scent mixed with vanilla and sweet orange, great in a small amount for face creams, too. Although I haven't used it in lip balms yet, I use it straight out of the jar for my lips right now but would be better in a balm.

Can't believe how much I got for the amount of money I paid ! I looked everywhere for this and everywhere was charging 2-3x the amount.

Love the look of it, very natural looking, a darker yellow, beige. The texture is a bit grainy, but once it melts it is very smooth and makes your skin very soft. The smell is a bit strong, but mixed with some other butters it makes for a very nice cream/lotion!

I ordered one kg of this butter along with a kg of cocoa butter. It arrived on the date that they had set and I I had no trouble with delivery. When I opened the box I immediately noticed the pleasant aroma of the package. Not only that but the containers were very nicely packed and they even wrapped it in some bubble wrap ( which I enjoyed very much). The butter is very versatile but it does have a sort of grainy feel to it. It also smells lovely (sort of nutty and warm) and absorbes on my skin very quickly. The only problem I have is that the butter expires in a year, but thats my fault at buying too much (who could resist at that price). All in all, it is a very nice product and I will definitely purchase it again :)

I ordered 1kg because the price is amazing and I'm glad I did because it's getting used up so fast. It makes my hair so soft and manageable, though it does have a grainy feel when applied/melted directly on skin. Just heat it up in a bowl first. Personally I love the natural nutty scent

I ordered this product and was a little disappointed when I opened it. It was a beige color and didn't smell nutty at all. It smells like burned black licorice. Very strong. I found the consistency was nice and that if I melted it down and then allowed to cool, the smell was a bit weaker. I repeated the process a couple more times with the same amount I was using and found that I could then add EO's to I and their smell would come through. I am happy with the service I received and I may purchase other products but maybe not this one.

I keep it in the fridge until I am going to use it. It stays fresh longer not exposed to air or warmth. If it is aloud to sit out it becomes softer and harder as room temperature changes and becomes less creamy and fluffy. The last batch I ordered was really nice, not grainy like a previous order. It seemed also fresh and lighter, more moisturizing when melted right on my hand.

The Shea butter I bought has a light, beige color. Although the description says yellow, it is more beige if anything which is a bonus because this is the real deal. I am so happy with my purchase of Shea butter. I purchased 1 kg of Shea butter for only $11.40 and judging by the quantity, it will last me a long time to come.

I find this shea to be good value and serviceable. I have a friend who brings shea butter straight from Africa when she can. That being said, this shea is not the most amazing thing I've ever used but it is consistently good and you know when you get it it will work well. This batch smells a little burnt IMO but you won't really notice it in a product. Just a testament to the fact it is still made in an artisan environment in Africa.

I just received my shea and it's very nice on the skin. Shipping was very fast. I expected there to be a smell but it is extremely potent-like nut and campfire. However it seems to lessen after a little while on your skin. I'm going to try scenting a bit to see if it helps. I would suggest the refined shea butter if you don't like strong smells. That is what i will be getting next time. even though I wanted to avoid the refining. Thank you for the product

The smell of this butter IS potent, as another reviewer put it. I can't quite describe it, it smells very fatty in a strange way. The 500g I received did not have a campfire smell. I was a bit surprised to see that the "chunks" of the shea butter had white-ish spots. I thought it may be mold at first, but I don't think so because it melts into the skin the same as the rest of the butter. And it feels VERY nice.

This butter has a great constancy, a bit softer and smoother than cocoa butter, and actually they work great mixed together. The smell is quite potent, and more like an almost an over ripe nut compared to almond or other common nuts. But that's nothing a couple of drops of vanilla absolute or benzoin, can't remedy.

This shea butter is a beautiful ingredient to use in any body butters, face lotions, or healing salves.
