So after doing almost a week of research on what real shea butter is suppose to be like, i decided to give this one a try, and i'm pretty sure i hit the jackpot, cause this thing is nothing short of amazing. The shipping is nice and fast, came in a box with plastic puffs inside so the product is well protected. The jar is a very good size, butter is a ivory color, with a nutty smokey aroma, grainy to the touch but melt immediately when rubbed, so i know this is very good raw quality. I use this as a body moisturizer and facial moisturizer, leaves my skin so supple and smooth, coming from a asian girl that use to be obsessed with expensive product ranging from SKII to Creme de la Mer, you know this is good stuff. I only use a tiny bit each time, rub them between my palm to warm it up before apply a thin layer, skin absorbs this within a couple minutes and i can't believe how well this works, and since shea butter is non-comedogenic, it's safe for all skin type. I also use this on my hair as a sealant, i towel dry my hair until 80% dry and then apply a bit of this on my hair from mid section down, hair dries unbelievably soft and smooth. I think i might have found a new HG product!

I'm not sure what happened to my original review. I wrote one about a week after I received mine which was about a month ago. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I kept on readi g how people were not getting what they were told when ordering Shea butter from amazon. I took the plunge and purchased this anyway because it was convenient for me not to have Shea butter be delivered to me in a seran wrap bag.

When I got it I immediately noticed that there were little brown dust like sheddings around he lid. The when I opened he lid here was a seal that you had to remove before getting the Shea butter. When I took it off the smell was so... I do t even know how to describe it. Kind of smokey and natural. Definitely no added fragrance, just raw Shea butter. And when I touched it, it was a grainy feel then immediately melted on my fingertips when I started to rub my fingers together. This is definitely raw unrefined Shea butter. I plan on ordering another container. It works so well with my 4 year old son's exIcema. His skin looks so nice and smooth with a nice glow/shine. I am hoping they will come out with a larger container. The One I have will not last long.

I will start this off with: If you're going to start using natural and organic products, you need to get over the idea that everything has to be smooth, creamy and overly and artificially scented. This is the real deal. Not processed, not mixed in a lab, this is almost as pure as it gets without actually doing the work yourself as far as I can tell.

Mixing this shea butter with other oils and ingredients (such as coconut oil, almond oil, NOW Solutions Glycerine Vegetable, 16-Fluid Ounces) makes for a very desirable skin moisturizer and protection. Living in Colorado, in a semi arid to nearly arid climate, winter heating and the extreme temps (cold outside and warm inside) make for very rough and difficult to treat skin. Creating my own recipe, I have found the solution that helps keep my skin from feeling tight and dry between showers and I don't need to reapply my concoction after work/before bed like I would with the more expensive commercially available lotions such as Curel and Eucerin. In addition, I believe the chemicals used in most lotions work against your skin instead of in harmony with it.

Also, I use it alone on my face every night, after I take off my makeup. It's a bit greasy but you get over that quickly if you want a healthy option for the delicate skin on your face. It's also great to put in your hair if your hair and scalp are feeling dry. Just put it on after a shampoo and leave it in for as long as you like.

I purchased my first Essentials Depot shea butter in September and am now waiting on my second jar. This stuff goes a long way and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I don't think the is real shea butter, the color and texture are way off and its not as greasy as real shea butter. It also ruined my formulations. Won't be buying again. I went with this brand because I was in a pinch an they have a lot of very good reviews. Usually really shea butter is chunky and if it isn't it is somewhat hard. This was extremely soft, I think they might have processed it.

This is good quality shea butter. It is soft right out of the jar. Was not brittle. I used it to make shea butter whip cream for my body.

It is ivory color and has a faint nutty, smokey smell.

I will purchase again when I run out.

The shea butter is very grainy and has a greyish color I'm not used to seeing. I think what has happened is the shea butter was heated and poured into the jar it arrived in. Shea butter will go from smooth to grainy if you overheat it. I will never buy this from this company again. The shea from essential wholesale online is much higher quality. I use mine in cold process soap. I will add to my review after I make a batch with this new shea.

This is the first shea butter that I could not use. It was beyond extremely grainy, however, I completely understand the grainy aspect that is normal to happen to shea butters when in transit when the fatty acids solidify at different Temps etc.

So, I tried to use it by gently warming it then letting it solidify very fas in the freezer. The idea of this process is to help melt all the fatty acid molecules to the same melting point to be all equally dispersed and warmed. Afterwards, the rapid cooling has the fatty acid molecules "solidify" all at once, instead of thenthree different solidifying temps -there are three diff fatty acids in shea- thr grainy effect is when the butter is left to re solidify slowly at a random temperature, and when this happens, the molecules of the same fatty acids stick together thus forming "crystal" like structures in the shea (doesn't effect the actual properties of shea it's just for better feel to rid the grainy)

Anyway! So this particular shea butter took WAY WAY longer to soften and melt compared to any other shea iv ever worked with. It almost was if there was a small bit of a wax added to it or somehting because of the unusually high melting point it seemed to have.

It also never would even soften if I placed the jar in a diff cup of hot water, it didn't even kind of soften. It still stays hard as a brick, I even placed it in the feezer where I prefer to store my cocoa butter as well. About a month after, I chose to bring out the shea once more, and it was no surprise the shea butter looked EXACTLY as the shea did before it was frozen. Its just SO solid, and it also felt almost like the way lotion feels on my lips, not normal it's that annoying feeling if you have ever gotten lotion accidently on your lips.

I really wanted to like this, as I have almost all my other sheas, but I had to get a refund this was simply not usable. I personally can't recommend this.
