Original 100% Shea Butter
100% pure Grade A Shea butter is a superb moisturizer with exceptional healing properties for the skin. Only the best Shea butter is hand-prepared without chemical extraction, bleaching or whitening agents that strip its healing properties.
Pure Shea butter is high in vitamin A and E, along with vital phyto-nutrients to heal and condition the skin. Its healing properties for blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, dermatitis, chapping, skin allergies, insect bites, sunburn, frostbite and other skin conditions are well documented. More recent research shows proven effectiveness in healing cuts, abrasions, surgical incisions as well as preventing tattoo scarring.
Finding such a high quality Shea butter is difficult. More common but less pure grades are chemically extracted, or are diluted with other ingredients and may moisturize but do not heal. Commercially available, pure white or very deep yellow Shea butter has been extracted with hexane or other petroleum solvents which are carcinogenic. After extraction, it is refined, bleached and deodorized which destroys any healing properties it had.
Our premium, 100% pure, grade A Shea butter has a light yellow color and a slight aroma that identifies it as real. The yellow color indicates the vitamin A content, and the smooth creamy consistency shows the handmade origin, as it is never granular or gritty. It will melt easily in your hand and be absorbed immediately into the skin.

I love this for my dry, aging skin. I rub it into my feet and hands right before bed. I recently gifted a jar to a young friend who is suffering from pregnancy dryness. She also says it’s the best!
Best stuff since sliced bread. It seems kind of hard at first but the butter just smooths and melts into your skin without feeling greasy or heavy. My hands and cuticles haven't looked this good since before I started gardening.....! A jar lasts quite a long time too as a little dab is plenty.
This is the only Shea Butter I have ever found in AZ that is equal to the one the first made me love this stuff. Being first introduced to a quality butter, I was disappointed to find out that the stuff sold in stores was nothing like it. Brand after brand was dirty grey and barely melted. When you find a good one like this, it is silky and literally and melts like butter. A different thing altogether.
I have been using Shea butter for several years and nothing compares to this product. I used to go to African import stores to get the best prices but the quality was reflective of the bargain. Their butter would melt easily but sometimes would have a grainy feel and a grayish tint. This butter is the thickest, creamiest, and smoothest product I have ever used. You will not be disappointed.
This is my second order of Shea Butter and I have been telling everyone about it. I got it to use on my scar after sugary on September 22, 2014, and it has healed miraculously. It looks like it was September of last year.
I have been using the shea butter and it is unlike anything I've used before! It's not greasy, absorbs wonderfully. Thank you for carrying such a high-quality product.
