Unrefined Yellow Shea Butter is 100% pure with no chemicals or preservatives.
Some wonder what the difference between this and Ivory Shea Butter is. Well here is the answer and it is simple! Unrefined Yellow Shea Butter gets its color from the root of the African Borututu Tree. It’s revered for its healing abilities. The Ghanaian women add it in during the milling process to give the Shea Butter extra nutrients. This root is a vibrant yellow/orange color and is what gives the yellow shea butter this color. If you would like more details on this please see our in depth article regarding Yellow Shea Butter.
This butter is commonly preferred by people with eczema, psoriasis and other difficult skin conditions because it has these added nutrients and it takes longer to absorb into your skin which creates a better moisturizing effect.
Yellow Shea Butter is a bit harder than the Ivory Shea Butter. It can also give a light glow or tan look when used on fair skin.

How to use Shea Butter
Drop a pea-size dollop of shea butter in your hands and rub together to melt, and then apply directly to the skin. If you whip it into one of our luscious body butter recipes, apply much as you would any other cream. We recommend you use a wooden or plastic spatula or spoon to dip into your lotion or cream container.
Shea butter can also be used to tame frizzy and unruly hair. Melt a small amount of shea butter in your hands, scrunch into or run over your hair to moisturize, smooth and shine.
Storing Shea Butter
Store Shea Butter either in its original packaging, or place in a plastic or glass jar with a lid. Keep it in a cool, dry place out of the sunlight. As long as the temperature is below 75 degrees there is no need to keep it in the fridge. Shea Butter has an average shelf life of 24 months.
