Shea Butter is obtained from the Shea-Karite Tree which is native to Africa. It is solid at room temperature but softens when warmed and on contact with skin.
Shea butter can be used on its own, but is most commonly for skin care. It is used in a variety of applications ranging from Skin care products, Lip balms, Body masks, Creams, Lotions, Body butters, Hair care products, Liquid and Bar Soaps, Bath oils, Suncare products, Baby products, and the list goes on.
Shea Butter is a fantastic moisturiser for dry and ageing skin and is used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and blemishes. It is an excellent and popular choice for those seeking a natural option for healthy, soft and smooth skin.
Our Shea Butter has been refined to remove the odour but its properties are still the same. It is not melted down when packaging, it is carved from the block.

I have used this shea butter to make my own moisturizer. Blended nicely and has a great scent. My skin has shown improvement as well. So I will definitely buy again. Thank you.

The quality of the shea butter is great and the product was delivered promptly without any dramas.
The only thing I'd say is that it was extremely difficult to get the bucket open to get to the shea butter!

Lovely product. Easy to measure out because it is refined and not in big chunks. Great value and well packaged. Shipped in good time. Glad I found this company.

I must admit you were very fast with your delivery. this is the first time I have used Shea butter. Stays on your skin for a good while. Skin feels smooth. I will try it on my hair . It does take a little time to melt in your hand. But the product works very well .will see how it goes over time. But I like a more natural product more than the ones you buy in the shops. Would recommend it it .
