With a botanical name of Butyrospermum Parkii, Refined Organic Shea Butter is also known as karité in Senegal. It is essentially a fat that is extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree, found in the tropics of Africa.

Refined shea butter is white, odourless, and has a longer shelf life. This organic butter is favoured by many due to its ability to give the appearance of enhanced and moisturised skin. Refined shea butter is suitable for skin care products due to its lack of colour and scent. It has a very creamy texture, almost like a lotion.


It can be used on its own, but can also be easily mixed with other products. It is often used in skin care products such as soaps and moisturisers.

Our high-quality organic refined shea butter has not undergone any chemical processing during the refinement process and has been steam-processed and may still have retained some of its moisturising properties albeit reduced. Refined shea butter provides a good alternative to the unrefined organic product when an odourless and colourless, aesthetically-appealing ingredient is needed in a skincare formulation. Before you check out, be sure to browse the rest of our range of body butters.

Refined shea butter is taking the skincare industry by storm due to its magical moisturising capabilities. Thus, making it a staple in a multitude of products. To give you an insight on how widely used this organic butter is, here are some of the products that include refined shea butter:

  • Stretch mark butter: Organic refined shea butter is a powerful moisturiser containing emollient benefits that make the skin look lovelier, smoother and softer. It helps prevent the existence of stretch marks.
  • Cleansing balm: Shea organic butter in cleansing balms possess impressive moisturising capabilities, making the skin look moisturised, smooth and luscious. It helps melt away impurities and makeup.
  • Body butter: Body butters help restore and strengthen damaged skin. Combine it with refined shea butter, and they become a powerful duo that helps keep your skin looking beautiful all day. This organic butter acts as an anti-inflammatory, relieving the skin of itching and flare-ups. Today, nourish your body and soothe any irritations.
  • Moisturiser: The refined organic butter coming from Shea seeds have hydrating properties. They are absorbed quickly on the skin, embodying the perfect lotion feature. Refined shea butter replenishes skin lipids and lessens the possibility of dryness when applied topically.
  • Facial cream: Shea organic butter soothes sensitive skin and helps prevent blemishes. Refined shea butter, known for its remarkable moisturising power, is frequently used in facial creams to reduce the effects of ageing and nourish the skin.

How to Use Refined Organic Shea Butter

Organic shea butter is a versatile raw ingredient that can be used in a wide array of ways – both on its own and combined with other ingredients to create cosmetic and household products. Some of its uses (and how to achieve these uses) include:

Cleansing balm

Shea organic butter can often be found in cleansing balms, or can even be used alongside a cleanser. If you wish to add it to the cleanser you already own, all you need to do is mix a small amount of shea butter into your usual amount of cleanser and apply it to your face as usual, rinsing off after massaging it on your skin. 

Body butter

Body butters have a thicker consistency than a regular body lotion or moisturiser. Since organic shea butter is thick and rich, it is a valuable ingredient to any body butter recipe. If you want to make it at home, try out this DIY whipped body butter recipe for a pleasant self-care routine post-shower.


Organic shea butter is a popular ingredient in moisturisers. Similar to body butter, but with a thinner consistency, moisturising lotion with shea butter feels much lighter. This makes it a great option for those who dislike the feeling of a thick skincare product. If your moisturiser does not already have shea butter in it, you can mix in a small amount before applying it directly to your skin, focussing on any dry patches.


Our organic shea butter offers numerous benefits, including:

Easy Application

Shea organic butter has a cream-like texture that melts at body temperature, making application a breeze and great to use all day.


This organic butter is suitable for many skin types. It won't clog the pores or feel unpleasant on the skin.


While unrefined Shea butter has a naturally nutty and earthy smell, our refined shea butter comes without any scent. This gives you an open canvas to treat your butter with the scents you like the most. It works well both on its own and with other essential oils and carrier oils.


Refined shea butter is a very versatile ingredient and is used in many different cosmetic and household products, from lip balms to bath bombs, moisturising lotions to homemade soaps.

Enhances Appearance of Hair and Skin

Refined Shea butter can be used alongside or in hair conditioner to help improve the scalp’s appearance and potentially reduce the visibility of frizz. As for skin, it can be used as a moisturiser (or mixed in with your current one), to help improve how moisturised your skin looks.


Shea organic butter mixed with other natural or organic ingredients bring out the best of both worlds. As a result, it maximises the desired performance of a specific product. Kick-start your homemade skincare journey with these ingredients:

    Rich buttery texture.

    Published by Diaryhour on 13th Dec 2021

    This product act very well as an emollient when used on its own. I use it as the last step over my moisturiser and it would last over night. The colour of the product is the same as the displayed image. It is mostly odourless but when rubbed on the skin I can still pick up a hint of a woody scent. I’m glad they extracted and refine the Shea butter using steam so I can be assured this product is skin safe, with no present of additional chemicals. I’m a fan.

    This product is a must have for stubborn dry and flaky skin that won’t go away. In less than a week, my kids dry skin and eczema had gone away so much, I am pleasantly surprised and delighted. Having given up on all moisturisers and doctor visits, this has been my holy grail! Definitely recommend and will be buying more!

    I used to purchase Refined Shea Butter from my other suppliers, but when I found N-Essentials, they had it at a cheaper price, and my first batch of Shea from them is excellent quality, and is also in small pieces so it's easier to weight how much I need. Will definitely be purchasing again.
