Product Description

Size: 1 Pound

Shea Butter is ... FLEXIBLE, LUSTROUS, PROTECTS, MOISTURIZES, REVITALIZES, RELAXES. REFRESHES, MAINTAINS SKIN & HAIR MOISTURE. Shea Butter benefits to skin & hair are endless. The commercial method of extracting Shea Butter has also added to the perplexity of Shea Butter. Shea Butter is used as an ingredient in soaps, shampoos, conditioners, hair relaxers, lotions, hand & body creams etc... There is nothing wrong with using Shea Butter as an ingredient as long as it is Unrefined Shea Butter and not processed or refined. If Shea Butter is added to products and the portions are generous along with other natural and/or organic ingredients, the product is good. However, when the Shea Butter is not listed as a RAW ingredient, and is listed as one of the last ingredients, it is not worth buying. Unfortunately, many companies will use Shea Butter to market their products using scarce amounts of Shea Butter which may ultimately be refined and/or processed. Processing/refining Raw Shea Butter takes away it's natural healing properties. It is important to preserve the ancient methods of Shea Butter by using it in its RAW state rather than processed. UNREFINED COLOR - because Unrefined Shea Butter is extracted traditionally or cold pressed, the color may vary between light grey, ivory/almond pale and light yellow. The color of Unrefined Shea Butter depends on the Shea Nut itself. Due to the nature of the nuts, the color of Unrefined Shea Butter may vary. Light to medium yellow colored Shea Butter has a root extract added to it, not palm/palm kernal oil ( this is added by sellers for show) One cannot judge the quality and authenticity of Unrefined Shea Butter solely based on color. Texture and quality is imperative when purchasing/using Shea Butter. Try not to base your knowledge of Shea Butter by color first. Look at quality and natural smoky nutty scent.

I ordered 1lb, which should equal 16oz. It came in a plastic to-go container like you get at a restaurant. I weighed it with the package and it is only 14.8oz, including the container & lid- which likely weighs about 2oz. It looks like I was shorted about 3oz so not happy about that. Amazon refunded me $2 which was nice, but I am not pleased that the seller is deceiving people after reading other reviews.This is my first time ordering Shea Butter because I wanted to make my own lotions but maybe I chose the wrong place to purchase it. Also I am reading other reviews mine is the creamy color, not yellow, and it is the consistency of play-doh, not a hard block or buttery. It also smells like play-doh, not a pungent smell like some describe, but certainly not nutty or earthy either. I planned to add scented oils to it anyways so the smell isn't a concern however I am wondering it is really even Shea Butter? It looks clean, no debri. Seems like everyone has had a different experience so it is not consistent anyways...

I ordered this once previously from another seller, and was extremely pleased with what I received- exactly what was described, pure shea butter packaged nicely in a plastic tub. It lasted me a long time even though I used it daily, and was very satisfied with the product.
However, when I finally ran out and reordered, the second batch I received was very different from the first! What arrived was less than a pound, and was wrapped in TISSUE paper, rather than in a tub or even a plastic bag. If the day had been a little bit warmer the shea butter would have melted and run all over the place! I was not pleased at all with this packaging, not only because it might have melted, but also because the fragile paper wrap left the butter open to outside contaminants.
Aside from the packaging and the weight, shea butter itself was a different color and slightly different texture. However I've been using it for over a week and the quality seems just as good, so at the very least I'm pleased with that and will continue to use it. I'm going to be very careful about whom I order my next batch from!

Let me start of by saying I absolutely love organic unrefined shea butter!! it's one of the most moisturizing and delicious natural oils that you can put on your body and can heal most skin allergies and irritations all on its own. I also waited to write this review until I was able to order a USDA certified organic, raw, unrefined shea butter from Mountainroseherbs.com to compare it with this product in order to be fair.

I received this product in a thin plastic container with a lid (looked like potato salad that you would order from your local deli), not in a plastic bag as others mentioned. The faded label on the container said, "sold as set...ready to ship" with a bar code on it. There is no organic certification printed anywhere on this product or ingredients - it definitely not USDA organic. I used quite a bit of the pound that i purchased. Yes, it did have a strong smell like shea butter, but this one was more pungent and bitter as if it was on the cusp of going bad (Pure, unrefined organic shea butter is a yellow/beige color and their is a a nutty somewhat earthy odor that I am used to. Some like it and some don't. I don't love the smell, but I wouldn't use shea butter in any other way, most of the healing properties are destroyed during the refining and bleaching process as is the smell, which is why cosmetics and skin care manufacturers buy it refined - because it eliminates the odor and will last longer.....adding organic essential oils to organic unrefined shea butter can make it smell wonderful - but if your shea butter is white and smells fresh and clean, than it has been been refined and bleached).

I thought I would make a video review, and maybe I'll get to that later, but for now I'll just review and tell you how to make your own Shea Butter.

Like everyone else said, it comes double bagged so the packaging isn't the best. However, mine was sealed well and not damaged and I was perfectly fine with it. It was true ivory Shea, which generally means pure. It wasn't rancid or anything like that either. That smell is what it should smell like if not refined and without additives.

Overall, the quality was very high and quite a bargain when you consider that most products that say they are Shea based contain only a spoon full or two per container in reality. This allows a much higher level of purity for anything you'd like to Shea up. Very pleased with it and I do plan to re-order. I'll be making home made shea butter in custom scents for everyone for Christmas this year!

That said, it can be a bit difficult to use and does leave a smell when you don't doctor it up. So I do. Here is the easiest way to do it for you too.

To Make Shea Butter:
1) Very slowly melt your shea in a double boiler OR by floating a bowl containing the shea in a large pot. Use very low heat since it melts at body temperature. The more heat, the more vitamins you take out of it so less is better.

2) Once mostly melted (you can leave some chunks), you can let it settle some to be sure there are no sediments (also normal for unrefined though mine had none) and then pour the liquid carefully into another bowl for mixing, leaving the sediments behind.

3) Add about 5 ounces of various oils to one pound of Shea. I added 2 ounces of Sweet Almond Oil, 2 ounces of Hazelnut Oil and 1/2 ounce of Wheat Germ Oil and Macadamia Nut Oil each.
