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 has a natural nutty/smoky smell.

Our Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Shea Tree (Vitellaria Paradoxa) in Ghana, Africa . The Shea tree has been nicknamed “Tree of Life,” for its ability to help with numerous skin, hair, and health conditions. Shea Butter itself is also known as “Mother Nature’s Conditioner” for its exceptional moisturizing and softening properties.

This butter is known to soothe and hydrate mature skin as well as skin that has been damaged by the harsh effects of the elements.

  1. Melissa

    This is such a wonderful product! This is my first time using Shea Butter I’m just blown away at the quality and how it makes my skin feel. I have been using it to moisturize the skin around my eyes for the past week and I just LOVE it! I have acne-prone skin so I’ve been nervous to use the butter on the rest of my face, but I plan on trying that soon. I can’t wait to explore the different ways this product can be used and share it with my family and friends!

  2. MI

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

    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!
