African Shea Butter 100% Natural African Shea Butter is made from the nut of the African Shea Tree. It contains a rich amount of unremovable fatty acid which render it far superior to cocoa butter and other natural vegetable butters. this fatty is crucial to rejuvenating and moisturizing the skin. Shea Butter provides all the essential vitamins needed to make skin look and feel smoother, softer and most importantly, healthier. Its therapeutic properties protect the skin from wind, cold, sun and it helps heal wounds faster. Shea Butter stimulates cellular activity, fights the effects of aging and repairs rough, damaged skin.

I have been using Shea Butter for several years now and works wonders on my dry aging skin. Over the years I have found that whipping it makes it creamy and easier to use than in its natural form right out of the container. When you get your butter, empty the contents of the plastic container into your stand mixer (use paddle attachment) and mix at low speed at first to keep it from flying everywhere. Then increase the speed a little at the time. The butter will gradually heat up from the agitation and will become smooth. At this point you may add a couple of drops of essential oils to make it smell good or you can add a little jojoba oil which will double your moisturizing power. Please note that if you choose to heat Shea butter, do it gradually and at very low heat (I use a double broiler when I need to heat it) because it has a very low heat tolerance, if overheated you will end up with a gritty consistency that is not correctable. Note: if you do not have a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer, but it takes a while to get it soft and creamy, so consider having a buddy to do relays on holding the hand mixer. Enjoy - hope this tip helps.

I purchased this raw shea butter primarily for my hands and for under my eyes, and I couldn't be happier. I do not like creams or moisturizers that are synthetic or chemical based, and besides the fact that they aren't healthy - they never, ever work as well as they claim! The shea butter is a natural, thick, super-moisturizing emoilent that really gets the job done. My skin has never felt better. I used it for two days under my eyes and saw fine lines diminish more significantly than with months of use with other products. I now use this product on my entire body, including my ultra-sensitive face and I absolutly love it. It smooths knees, elbows, and rough heels, softens cuticles, and eases skin irritation. You have to break off a chunk and rub it between your hands to get it smooth for application. Rub it in really well and your skin will absolutely glow!! In addition to being thrilled with the product, I was thrilled with the price as well. Go to your local health food store and check out the price of pure, raw shea butter and you will see that they can not beat this awesome price.

Pure African Shea butter is one of the oldest forms of moisturizing around. It has been used in Africa for centuries. PURE RAW shea butter (not shea mixed with olive, mineral, or other oils...sometimes called Body Butters) is good for daily moisturizing of the body, face and hair. It is good for scarring, soothing stretch marks and a host of other things. Beware...a lot of retails (online and "regular" stores) sell low grades of shea butter OR shea mixed with other oils for unreal prices. This product is what I buy form various African vendors at conventions and small ethnic locations. It last long and it is real...no fancy packaging, etc. Just the product in a plain plastic jar. In addition to this I would recommend African Black Soap the best one is by DUDU Oson (I know I spelled it wrong) but you will know when you find it...it is a bit higher in price here at Amazon...but it is not a bad price. You can use that for your body AND face and you will notice the difference over time best of all NO CHEMICAL ADDITIVES!!! Since I have gradually made the switch to NATURAL body products my skin, nail and hair has been great. NOTE: To get thereal value of this product I recommend order MORE than 1 @ a time to off set the shipping. Just FYI. Hope thai helps.

This is NOT shea butter. It is gritty like cornmeal , mustard yellow, and warming to the touch when rubbed together. This is Kpangnan (pronounced Panya)! You are advertising organic unrefined Shea! I want my Shea butter which is what I ordered!

I ordered Organic African Shea Butter from Amazon based on their description of the product as well as the numerous 5-star reviews from customers. I had the product shipped to my office and received it yesterday. Anxious to try it, I opened the package and did what so many of the reviews said, I took a small piece, warmed it with my hands and used it on my hands. My co-workers did not appreciate the smell and thought that it might be rancid. I e-mailed Halaleveryday(who had shipped me the product) asking if the scent should be so overpowering or is it possible that it might be rancid. Halaleveryday's response to me was that the product has a strong nutty smell. they also said that this product is the main raw ingredient to make my own body butter and that they do not advise using it directly on the skin. They gave me the "recipe" to make my own body butter, however, I did not buy the product to use it to make body butter. I bought it to use "as is" in its natural state like most of the customer reviews state. I wrote back saying that the information Halaleveryday gave me was certainly not listed in the product information on Amazon and that I would not have purchased it if I knew that I should not use it "as is" directly on my skin. Halaleveryday's response was that I should not blame anyone other than myself because I should have researched the product prior to buying. They continued by saying that Amazon's listing "could not serve as a shea butter schooling" and that "the people who praised it know well what to do with it".
I dont even know what to say or what to think. Is everyone really using the product "as is" without "filtering"?100% Organic West African Shea Butter 16 oz
