Shea Butter
Shea is widely recognized as a superb moisturizer with exceptional benefits for the skin. Our shea is organic, raw, unrefined, Grade A, produced in Ghana by a local Women's Cooperative, and processed with hand-operated tools.

Shea butter functions as an emollient in lotions, balms, soaps, and conditioners. When working with shea butter, make sure that you add as little heat as possible. If using other oils in addition to shea butter, it is best to heat the oils first, then remove them from heat, and add the shea butter in small pieces to the heated oils. Finally, mixtures should be whipped by hand, and the shea butter should be cooled as quickly as possible, to help deter crystallization. Shea butter should be stored in a cool, dry place.

Suggested Use Levels

  • Lotions & Creams: 3% – 5%
