Our 100% unrefined pure shea butter is harvested lovingly by Ghanaian women who take pride in getting you the highest quality shea butter that is pure and unrefined 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 classic Unrefined Shea Butter is Ivory in color, has a rich consistency, and is extracted mechanically without using any hexane or other chemicals that would alter its nourishing properties. It is semi-hard and pliable, and the scent is slightly nutty and earthy. Shea is the richest of all our cosmetic butters.

The history of shea butter as an invaluable cosmetic traces back to Ancient Egypt, where Queen Cleopatra always kept in stock jars of pure, unrefined shea butter. Today Shea Butter is known as “women’s gold” because it is a valuable source of income for women in the West African community.


Shea Butter comes from an indigenous African tree called Vitellaria paradoxa. These are wild-growing trees producing tiny, almond-like fruits that start falling on the ground in May. These fruits are harvested, separated from the nut, then boiled and the butter floats to the surface. The butter is then milled and mechanically filtered (without the use of chemicals). From there it is imported to our facility in Austin, TX where it is again mechanically filtered and packaged.


We can say with confidence that Unrefined Shea Butter is for everyone and for every skin type. It is loaded with vitamins A, E, F, Antioxidants, and Essential Fatty Acids (Linoleic and Linolenic), it is known to reduce eczema, skin rashes, even out skin tone, and soften your skin. It is non-comedogenic and perfect for those affected by acne who are looking for an effective and truly natural solution.

How to use Shea Butter

First of all, drop a pea-size dollop of shea butter in your hands and rub together to melt 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.

You can also use Shea Butter 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.

  1. MI

    I was paying a lot more elsewhere for the yellow stuff. This is far superior in quality and price. Absolutely love it.

  2. MJ

    Easily the best shea butter ever! So smooth and rich. I’ve been using it for year now as facial and chest moisturizer (Mini Ivory unrefined) and still have some left, about a third left. The best product for your face you can find! Has evened my skin tone significantly, and even treated my rosacea. If there was any shea butter i’d recommend this would be the one.

  3. Jai

    The quality of this product is phenomenal! The smooth rich feel of this butter is wonderful for any use! I look forward to apply more of Better Shea Butter products into my soaps and lotions!

  4. B.

    I really do love it! I was using refined Shea butter (the really yellow kind) ..and I liked it, but I saw a documentary about how “REAL”, natural, unrefined shea butter was made and decided to go on a hunt for some..found these ppl and I LOVE IT! It’s so soft, ivory colored (as it should be)..I will be re-purchasing! and I have already told others about it.

    ps: I use a small smudge of it as facial moisturizer..beats ANY and EVERY moisturizer in store! EASY!
