Unrefined Shea Butter is a nutrient rich cosmetic butter packed with vitamins and antioxidants. It is effective in deeply moisturizing the skin to help repair severely dry or cracked skin and maintain a healthy glow.

Unrefined Shea Butter  is a completely natural product. The color of the butter can thus vary between ivory or gray and can sometimes have a green tint to it. It comes from the nuts of the Shea Tree (Vitellaria Paradoxa) in Ghana, Africa and has a natural nutty/smoky smell.

    How is the Ivory Shea unrefined if natural pure shea is yellow? Asking because I’m in the process of choosing between Ivory and yellow. I want my product to be as natural as possible and only want true unrefined. Thanks

      Good question, let me clarify.

      There are 3 “colors” for shea butter:

      1. Ivory/cream/off-white. This is unrefined shea butter, pure, nothing added, nothing taken away. It has a characteristic nutty and smokey scent. This is the most popular shea butter with consumers who want natural, pure skin care. This is our #1 best seller, we call it “Unrefined Shea Butter – Ivory”.

      2. White. This is refined shea butter. The ivory color and the nutty scent is taken away with different processes depending on the company that does it, but generally you need a bleaching agent and an odor removing chemical to achieve white, refined shea butter. We do not sell this type of shea.

      3. Yellow. This is the ivory/cream/off-white color shea as in #1 above, with the addition of a root from an African tree called Borututu Tree. This root is orange/yellow and when used in small amounts, it will color the shea and give it a bright yellow tint, and it will also add extra antioxidants for your skin. We sell this shea, it’s called “Unrefined Shea Butter – Yellow” in our store.

      I hope this clarifies it.
