Virgin unrefined shea butter, a pure natural close to nature product for you skin. Luxurious creamy texture that melts with body temperature all offered in this fantastic butter.

Shea Butter Information

Unrefined Shea Butter is 100% natural and absolutely no chemicals are used in the processing. This shea butter is processed by a fair trade women's co-op in Ghana Africa and is shipped fresh, ready to use. No preservatives or additives of any kind are used in my pure unrefined shea.

The high quality unrefined shea butter is processed using the laborious traditional method. The hand-collected nuts are similar in size to almonds. The nuts are removed from their shell and placed in a large mortar, pounded by hand to shred and then ground with a stone to a fine paste. The paste is initially the color of dark chocolate. It is washed with water for a number of times until the chocolate color turns into the rich creamy color of the final product. At that point it is boiled in a clarifier to reduce the moisture before being packaged for shipping.

I add no fragrance to this Organic Virgin Shea Butter. You will find this butter to be ivory to greenish/grey in color. The aroma is slightly smoky, grassy, nutty.

This is a natural organic product each batch will vary slightly.

Ultra refined Shea Butter begins the same as the unrefined. But more steps are taken. Filters are used to further process the unrefined butter until it is bleached, odorless, white and creamy.

A little shea goes a long way. Simply soften a tiny amount in the palm of your hand and apply. As this is a butter, you will note it is heaver than most lotions. It takes a little while to be absorbed into the skin, but the wait is worth it!

Price is for one 2 fl. oz. tin

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The purchase of this shea supports the Womens Project in Ghana Africa. I only purchase fair trade shea butters.

This shea is my absolute favorite of all the shea butters I sell. It is all natural, organic. The characteristic earthy aroma and ivory, gray/green color are the natural properties of the shea nut. It absorbs like a dream.

This shea is harvested fresh within several weeks of my receiving the shipment. The proceeds go directly to support an African village in Ghana. The women of the village harvest the nuts, process the butter by hand using traditional mortal and pestle. No chemicals are used. (To get the pure white shea butter, the raw butter is processed with filters, I also sell scented and unscented refined shea.)

When you visit my display at the store, look for the photos of the Ghana Women's Project.
