First of all, that store brand lotion you’re using? It probably has shea butter listed as an ingredient, but it’s not the same. 2-5% is all the big guys add and it’s a refined version, which means they strip it of most nutrients. Our 100% unrefined, pure shea butter is harvested lovingly by Ghanaian women who depend on their craft to live. It comes to us as Mother Nature intends! That means it’s safe and loaded with nutrients and vitamins to renew your biggest, hardest working organ–your skin!

Our 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 it extra nutrients. Our Yellow Shea Butter is commonly preferred by people with eczema, psoriasis and other difficult skin conditions, because it tends to take longer to absorb and creates a better moisturizing effect. Yellow Shea Butter is also a bit harder than the Ivory, and when used on fair skin, can give it a light glow or slight tan look.

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.

    So, I’m normally extremely, well, cheap, with the ingredients I buy for my beauty product projects.I’m more of the old school French cuisine theory where even the lowliest ingredient can be elevated by good technique, or something. I was looking for shea butter for a hand balm and almost bought one of the other first page search results that was far far less expensive. Then I read its reviews and it sounded awful. In an uncharacteristic fit of excess I sprang for this one instead and ohhhh my gods above and below, it’s heavenly. It’s like frosting. I wanted to eat it with a spoon. It’s worth every penny and then some. If you were waffling at all on buying this brand or not, waffle no further, it’s great

    Delicious! I’m newly pregnant and have been using the shea butter straight, on a friend’s recommendation, but the included recipes look great too. Here’s hoping this first pregnancy a zero stretch mark one!

    Customer service means a lot to me but when it’s coupled with a great product it’s win win. I had recently given up trying to find Palmers Shae Butter and have been going back and forth trying to find something that will work on my very dry skin. So far with now much luck.
    I’m so happy I couldn’t find Palmers anymore because it lead me to see what was available online and this is way better. With most lotions my skin will be dry in an hour or two. With body butters I will get a few more hours. So, as a test I put this on before bed and by the next afternoon I was still moisturized. I couldn’t believe it.
    I took a chance and ordered two of these on my first order because of the reviews. I’m so happy I did.

    Due to some mailing issues i haven’t had my Shea butter for long but from the moment i opened it i knew i was going to love it! the color is a bright yellow color, exactly how it is pictured the scent is earthy but not overwhelming, and the packaging allows me to keep it stored safely. I bought this for my hair and already i noticed a difference it makes it super soft and manageable and i love it! and a little goes a long way! i will definitely buy this again when i am done with my first batch!

    Love this product, high quality, excellent for making creams and lotions

    I’ve used Shea Before, usually from the sweet street vendors in New York City. I love those guys, but I have to say this product rivals it. The texture quickly turns from putty to butter. This is more of a winter seal-in skin moisturizer for me, but I know people who use it all year. For sure you will not be disappointed. This is a solid, simple, real and untainted product from as far as I can see. Makes a great gift for individuals with skin allergies, sensitivities and fashionistas who like raw product!

    I moved in desert area and I have to need something moist.
    I bought this Shea butter, and this is very good choice I think. It’s wonderful!
    I will buy again next time!

    I bought Yellow Shea Butter from you and some essential oils, jojoba and sweet almond oils from elsewhere to make a body butter. Wish I had spent the money for the additions on a second pack of your butter coz it is super creamy without excessive oiliness. The smell is so honestly Mother Nature, I think it would be a cardinal sin to add the essential oils; it’d be like dunking ketchup on ‘seasoned to the bone’ jerk chicken!
    I live in Jamaica and it’s close to ’96 Degrees in the Shade’ right now! Very windy though, but my skin doesn’t feel super sticky at all. I also purchased it to see if it can help my daughter’s terribly stubborn eczema; I’ll update you on that another time.
    I’ve been using shea butters for years now and am so happy I’ve finally found out why some yellow shea butters are far cheaper than yours! Keep up the good work. I HIGHLY recommend Better Shea.

      Thank you so much Maxine, and I absolutely agree with you about the Yellow Shea being awesome! And yes, the nutty smell is authentic, it takes me back to Africa 🙂 Good luck with the eczema situation, we hear stories all the time of children being born with it but handling it with shea butter, I look forward to your feedback on that one <3
