Size: 7 OZ Verified Purchase
For the last 4 years, I have purchased Shea Butter 7fl. oz. at a local store. And I love it! I would recommend this to everyone! It is soft, creamy, and smooth. A little goes a long way or else it will be to greasy. I use the Shea butter on my entire body and my hair. Your probably wondering why I rated this product 2 stars.....

I recently relocated to another state and I had hard time finding it locally. I recently ordered Shea Butter 7fl. oz. from Amazon (2 day Prime Shipping.) I received the Shea Butter on 12-10-13. I opened the seal, and was shocked to see the Shea Butter in crumb & flakey texture! Now Solutions' Shea Butter should be smooth & solid form. After 4 years of buying this product, I am very disappointed. I posted a picture of my crumbled Shea Butter on here. I never had this brand Shea Butter look like this; nor do I know why it is like this. I just emailed Now Solutions and waiting for a reply.

***Update, as of 1-4-14 Now Solutions has not responded back to me. I will no longer purchase their products. Now Solutions has bad customer service, or shall I say, lack of customer service. Stay away from this Shea Butter.

~~~~Thank You Amazon, for your great service on providing me a refund of this bad product.~~~~

I've been using unrefined shea butter (mixed with aloe vera gel and some oils) on my hair and skin for a while now - this is not it.

People need to understand the industrial difference between organic and natural. Natural means that the product is processed, but nothing artificial is added to it. For all the ladies out there who are concerned about sodium laurel sulfate, a product can still be called natural even if it contains SLS! NOW Foods does specify that they do not use solvents (especially hexanes) in the extraction process and that nothing artificial has been added.

I figured by reading the reviews that this is refined, and not 100% pure as they advertise, by the description of it being a nice white color.

I bought this because it would have taken too long to get unrefined shea shipped in by the time I left for break. The organic store I went to charged $9.99 for it, which is part of the reason why I'm a bit peeved. But that is the price one pays for convenience.

As a skin moisturizer, this is great. If you warm your hands before application and rub really quickly, most of the grit can be melted. This shea glides onto the skin better than unrefined shea. It also sinks in and isn't as heavy. However, I really hate the grit!. And don't use this in your hair while it's damp. No matter how long you rub your hands together, there will still be white grit in your hair. My hair wasn't moisturized as well as had I used the unrefined shea.

I would buy this again simply because I wouldn't want to use up my hair shea on my skin. This melts faster, glides more easily and is basically perfect for skin application. As a moisture retainer for hair, it bombed.

UPDATE:

After a few more uses I will not buy this again. The grit makes the product not worth it for me.

After the winter months on Artic fish beaches, I use the NOW Foods Shea Butter Lotion for the area of my nose that is prone to cracking, dryness and soreness due to the winter sun.

It's pretty good stuff and close to being more natural than chemical.

I purchased both NOW's shea and cocoa butter to see which would work best. This is by far the superior product. This shea butter moisturizes my skin far better than any lotion ever has. My skin is more supple after use and has a nice, healthy looking sheen as opposed to the greasy look I used to get from Vaseline when trying to achieve the same affect. But it is shea's healing properties that make it a truly wonderful product. Burns, bug bites and scars have had my thighs looking an uneven bruised mess for the longest time. I always thought eventually I'd have surgery to get rid of this scarred skin, but less than a week's use of this shea butter has my legs looking so much better! I couldn't believe it. The scars are fading and my skin tone is evening out. I am so pleased.

The only complaint I have is the size of the jar. I wish NOW sold the shea in 1lb jars. 7oz is not enough.

I gave a jar of this Shea Butter to my wife, who is from Mali, West Africa and who grew up close to where Shea Butter is made. Her mother, who was a folk healer, used it both for the health of her skin and as a salve. My wife prefers this product to the Shea Butter sold by l'Occitane for many times the price L'Occitane Beurre de Karitè (Organic Shea Butter), 4.9-Ounce Tin. In particular, she finds the texture to be very authentic, and she also likes the lack of a strong scent.
