It does not come in terrific packaging but overall is a very good product so who cares about fancy packaging!

It's hard, but quickly softens when rubbing it in your hands.

I've used shea butter many times but it is pretty expensive. This product however is not. Yes it is unrefined. So that makes it not creamy or nicely scented. But a small amount rubbed in your hand will quickly warm it up. Best to use it before bed. I use it for everything. Worked great even applied to damp hair. But only in the smallest amount and not on the roots. My hair is so soft. l apply to my lips before bedtime, better than chap stick. Use liberally on your feet and put socks on. Yes I will buy this again and from this seller. It arrived before estimated delivery date.

I ordered and was charged for 16oz. The product pictured two containers so I weighed the one container I received. In the container.....the amount I received was 11 oz...and the container weighs about 2 oz.

Please correct this shortage.

after I have read those negative reviews about it and about how stinky it is and how hard it is and how the color is not what it should be... I still wanted to try because of other positive reviews and because it is natural without any chemicals.
Let me tell you, I am very impressed! I dont understand why people are saying it is stinky , the smell is totally fine, kind of nutty, natural smell. Of course it will not smell perfumy like other creams sold in stores because they are packed with perfume and chemicals and this product is all natural!
I was using Palmer's tummy butter before and I was still itching and got rashes now and then ( I am 6 months pregnant). I started using this Shea Butter and I don't feel the itchiness any more.
it is hard in texture, but it melts right when you are able to scrape some onto your fingers and then when you massage it in, it can stay long and moisturize your skin. You need to wear loose cotton clothes though because it's "butter". But the grease is easy to remove from your palms once you are done applying it.
Dont listen to those negative reviews about it! These folks should then buy the products with additives and chemicals if they want it creamy, perfumy smell and non-greasy.
if you want to go all natural, this is a very good quality product. I am very happy with the purchase.
BTW, people say it does not come full in the container or underweight. My container came full and packed to the top with solid butter, no chunks or anything like that... Excellent packaging.

When I received my "16 ounce" tub of shea butter it seemed a bit lightweight and I could see a lot of air voids through the sides of the plastic container. I weighed it with a very accurate digital scale and found that it was not 16 ounces but only 13 ounces and that included the weight of the container. So, I feel that I have been screwed out of about 25% of the product that I paid for.

If I were to rate only the effectiveness of the shea butter, I would probably give it four or five stars. No, it's not a magic bullet for any skin problem but it has helped me with symptoms of winter itch as well as a patch of psoriasis on each of my feet. It seems to be more effective than any of the higher priced and highly refined skin products available in drug stores and supermarkets. I've used this product for only a few weeks now (I started with a 5 ounce tub), so the jury is still out on it's effectiveness. So far, however, I like it.

I do like knowing that my purchase is helping the people of Ghana. I spent a few weeks in that country on company business some years ago and just fell in love with the people and their culture. Despite the poverty, they are surprisingly honest, happy, and healthy. I'm not sure if the tubs of shea butter are packed in Ghana (in which case we should send them a good scale) or whether they're packed in this country (in which case, shame on us).

I was glad to see this was in its unrefined state, nice and thick, a little goes a long way. The only issue I had was that it did not look like the picture at all, the packaging was some kind of takeout container with no label, and 3 oz short of the description.

I have been ordering 100% Shea Butter from RA Cosmetics for the last 2years. Ordered the usual 16oz tub but it's the first time that it's not the same. Different packaging with NO description and it's processed different due to it not being it's usual yellow color. Instead it's more whitish and smells different. I've got Dermatitis and am nervous about using it.
