“I never thought I had beautiful skin until I started using Better Shea Butter products. I’ve always had terrible dark spots on my face, shoulders, and lower back.  I started out using the ivory unrefined organic shea butter alone. It made my skin glow and feel so smooth. I loved it. And the service was great too!
The first time I touched shea butter it was like chocolate melting in my mouth: smooth and creamy, and that’s exactly how it leaves your skin.

As a massage therapist, this product has become a must for me. It replaced all the expensive stuff filled with chemicals, preservatives and synthetic fragrances. Better Shea Butter by Shea Butter Lady is the best out there: clean, raw and unrefined. Mix it with your favorite oil, sunflower or hemp, and you have the healthiest applicable cream for the skin filled with vitamins A, K, E, F and essential fatty acids. Remember your skin is an organ, too. Get Better Shea and do your body good!

I quickly discovered “Better Shea Butter” while researching ingredients for my products. After my first order I was hooked.

Gallipot is founded on the idea of simplicity and sustainability, and Better Shea Butter shares my vision with ethically and sustainably sourced products.

As a small company, I love supporting family businesses locally and globally. Better Shea gives me consistent, high quality results time after time.

I love sharing with my customers that I get my shea butter from Better Shea Butter.

I found Better Shea Butter on Amazon and ordered the Zinc oxide, the Ivory shea butter and the Cocoa butter.

I was looking to purchase products from a company that offered organic, responsibly sourced products. I am happy that I found Better Shea Butter. These products are superior to other brands in that they are easier to work with and they have a wonderful natural aroma. Not only are the products great, but the customer service has been exceptional!

I am glad that I can pass along superior quality, healthy products to my customers.

I never thought I had beautiful skin until I started using Better Shea Butter products. I’ve always had terrible dark spots on my face, shoulders, and lower back.  I started out using the ivory unrefined organic shea butter alone. It made my skin glow and feel so smooth. I loved it. And the service was great too! I received confirmation emails from the seller before and after I got my product. I also received a recipe book with every purchase.

Just recently, I started ordering the organic cocoa butter. I combine it with shea butter and oils to make my own body butters. My face is now clear of dark spots. My shoulders are almost clear and the dark spots on my back have faded significantly.

I will be ordering all my skin care products from Better Shea Butter. I wish to try next the african black soap and rosehip seed oil. I’ve had such great results with my shea butter and cocoa butter, I’m confident that these products will work also.

Since birth, my son, DJ, experienced multiple skin reactions from constantly switching skin care products. After a visit to the dermatologist we learned he suffered from eczema, which is very common in our family. I tried several brands of hypo allergenic, fragrance free skin care products but my son would continue to have skin reactions. 

A relative suggested Shea Butter because it was all natural and fragrance free. I searched Amazon and found so many great reviews on Better Shea Butter so I decided to give it a try. I must say I was extremely pleased with the products and free e-book to make additional skin care products.

Better Shea Butter has softened my son’s skin and we have not experienced any skin reactions since our first use. I also made a skin block and now working on a body scrub. 

Better Shea Butter is now the leading skin care product in my home!


I’d like to start out by saying that I’m a native of Florida and totally love the humidity. I didn’t realize how much I loved the humidity until I moved out West in a dry climate and many products weren’t providing me enough moisture throughout the day. I came across the Better Shea Butter website and knew I hit the jackpot!

I made Body butters in the past just for fun but realized that this was an absolute need. I ordered the shea butter, cocoa butter, and the African black soap and instantly fell in love. I made my body butter, and my skin feels absolutely amazing. I put it on after I shower to help seal in the moisture, and it works like a charm. The African black soap has an awesome lather, has no scent (all natural), and doesn’t dry my skin out. I’ve received numerous compliments on my secret to great skin, and I tell everyone I have 3 simple ingredients: shea butter, cocoa butter, and African black soap!

Love my products and will definitely order more!
