This butter is extracted from the Shea nut. After refinement, the butter has an off-white color and almost no odor, but the applications remain the same. It is solid at room temperature and creamier than the crude counterpart.

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 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. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C. 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.

I needed an odorless shea butter, and this delivered. There is a VERY slight smell, but it does not smell like shea.

This is a staple in my product line now. It makes fantastic lip balms! It makes me wonder why I ever shelled out money for premium products like Burt's. I can say with confidence that mine are better. Best of all, the shelf life has been proving to be quite good. I'm still using a lip balm I made last summer made with this shea butter.

Lovely shea butter. Not quite as easy to melt/spread on skin directly as the Burkina Faso refined organic (my favourite), but still creamy and rich. It doesn't leave the skin feeling tacky or sticky, like some other heavier shea butters. I also like that it has almost no smell at all.

A rich and creamy butter that I used with cocoa butter and grapeseed oil in a cream I whipped up in my blender and it was very lotion-like. The refined version is good in blends when I want it to smell like a particular EO that has a lighter and more delicate fragrance such as jasmine. Fabulous product. I will be back for more.

This butter is great! the texture looks grainy, but it melted down easily. I made chapbutter and anti-acne body butter from it, it turns out with just right texture, very soft and minimal. I needed a long lasting cream for my back acne, it blends beautifully with essential oils. An excellent product, A++

Texture: slightly grainy, but melted down and whipped beautifully! Slightly oily residue left on skin Sent: very minimal, dissipates in a few hours if using raw, easily covered up with EO's Overall an excellent moisturizer! I purchased the refined shea butter just in case i found the raw unrefined shea butters scent too strong. However the unrefined shea butter was not very strong smelling, and was actually creamier and not grainy at all!

Way too grainy to be used in my body butter! Even after I whipped it a lot!I had such high hopes for this refined Shea butter, but I think I'll stick to using the Hemp seed butter instead. The Hemp seed butter is so smooth and wonderful!

This is a wonderful butter! I had first used L'Occitane shea butter and a small tin was $10 (for 0.26 oz). I purchased the smallest sized jar of this available for $2.74 (for 0.22 lbs!!). I will NEVER go back to L'Occitane, it boggles my mind how much of a rip-off that is. This butter is affordable, and quality. Just taking a piece as-is and rubbing it on my skin, I know that I will be a customer of New Directions Aromatics for years to come. Keep in mind this butter has a stronger scent than that of L'Occitane, and it is a different scent. I can say that I prefer the scent to this! The other one smelled kind of off to me (but that is my opinion, everyone is different). At the very least I suggest trying the sample size, you really can't go wrong with this quality and the price. :D

Beautiful creamy product at a great price. There is a subtle scent when its melted down, but holds a fragrance beautifully. Ive made some unscented products with this butter and the comments have been "earthy", "pleasant", "warm". I add a bit of beeswax to it for color. This has been a Must Have product on my shopping list!

NDA's Shea Butter has a lovely and creamy texture! Although I can't tell the extent to which it has been deodorized (due to a cold) I can tell that this will make a wonderful whipped body butter! I had a hard time choosing all of the different butters that NDA offers, and I plan to purchase Cocoa Butter for my Body Balm next. Thank you NDA!

I recently purchased the Refined version of Shea and I am absolutely in love with it. It's so soft and supple and nourishes the skin on contact. Extremely easy to work with. I chose refined because I don't like strong scents and wasn't sure about Shea, so tried the cleaned version - and what can I say - I am a fan.

Love this product! The smooth, creamy texture and subtle scent makes it the perfect butter for creamy concoctions. Other scents can be added and will not be overpowered as they would normally be when unrefined shea butter is used. And the price! Can't go wrong there! I got a kilo for the same price I usually shell out to get 100g of shea butter at department stores. Great value!

I always have been using the 100% natural shea butter before. This time, I ordered the refined one. I liked its creamy texture. I must say I miss the smell of fresh shea butter, but this refined butter is really worth the value (and the price !) I made soaps with this shea butter and as ever, the results are apetizing ! Thanks to New Directions.

I first ordered shea ( natural ) from another company and the smell was so awfull I trew it away. But since I liked the effects, I wanted to give it another try, with you deodorized version. It was a great move ! Althought it still smells a little bit ( like it's supposed to ! ), I like it a lot. Mixed with other butters it is fine. I guess I will get used to the smell eventually. Thank you for this good product, and for the affordable prices.
