Shea Butter

Shea Butter is derived from the Shea Nut (Butyrospermum parkii) of the karite nut trees in West Africa. It is physically extracted by boiling the nuts, and as the fat/oil rises, it is manually scooped off. It is bleached and deodorized, thus having a mild to nonexistent odor. It is a nonchemical process using natural clays and does not harm the material in any way.

What makes Shea butter an extraordinary skin care product is its precious constituents, which include unsaturated fats with a proportion of "unsaponifiables"components, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamins and allantoin-all which are natural and make Shea Butter a superfood for both skin and hair.

About Our Topical Butters

  • We both manufacture and source only the finest quality products from highly regarded suppliers from all around the world, many of whom we’ve worked with for decades.
  • Our In-house Quality Control Laboratory has experienced technicians to provide a complete and thorough product analysis of all of our topical butters.
  • Our topical butters are all natural and have no added ingredients (unless otherwise noted).


While Shea Butter has a wide variety of applications, it is most well-known for its exceptional therapeutic properties, and as a highly effective emollient.

  • Is incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for the skin, therefore it is perfect to use in body and skin care products including lotions, body and face creams, and soaps.
  • It makes an effective hair conditioner, and helps promote hair and scalp health.
  • Great for use in after-sun creams and lotions.

Directions: To Prepare Butters: Melt in a double boiler and combine them with a liquid carrier oil; pour into a container and allow to solidify at room temperature. This process will make the butter a softer consistency and will apply easier to the skin.

Packaging: The 4 fl oz and 8 fl oz Shea Butter is packaged in a white plastic double-wall container with a tight sealing, plastic screw on lid with poly liner, and the 1 lb size is packaged in polyfoil bags with a re-sealable zipper closure, protecting the contents from light exposure and moisture.

good product!

smooth, (earlier batch was a bit grainy), no odor. Feels good on my skin.
I've tried to find unrefined shea butter, but have not found a reliable source--all I've tried have had a slight to pronounced rancid aroma

This shea butter is really good at locking in moisture! After shampooing, conditioning, and moisturizing my hair, I apply some of this shea butter onto my hair and massage it in. It has a mild consistency- not too heavy and not too light. I love how it doesn't smell too ashy because I have tried some shea butters before that tend to have a smell similar to ash. The butter made my hair very soft, and made my hair feel moisturized and VERY hydrated. Looking at the ingredient list, there is only one ingredient which is all natural shea butter, with no other ingredient! Also, this makes a great sealer. Like sealing your ends after braiding your hair, or the edges around your hair, is they tend to stick out, or baby hair or flyaways. This product is the one for you if you have dry hair that needs moisture!
