Botanical name: Butyrospermum Parkii

Colour: Cream, Light Yellow

Shea butter, also known as Karite in Senegal, is a fat extracted from the nut of the Shea Tree which is commonly found in the tropics of Africa.  It has a thick, nutty scent and a colour that varies from ivory to cream , light yellow, or green tone colour. 

Shea butter comes in two forms. It is either refined or unrefined. Organic unrefined shea butter is the purest form of shea butter. It is typically extracted using traditional West African methods, which means no other ingredients, chemicals, preservatives or heat were used. Since it is extracted manually, all its natural benefits are retained.


Shea butter, especially in its raw, unrefined state, is considered to be rich in nutrients, vitamins, and fatty acids. Its significant levels of vitamins A, E, and F plays a pivotal role in your skin. These three vitamins jam-packed together helps stave off the look of ageing lines. Vitamin A alone helps skin have a healthy-looking appearance while vitamin F relieves the appearance of chapped, dried skin . This makes organic unrefined shea butter an excellent addition to your skincare regimen.

While shea butter's fatty acids help to condition the scalp and hair from the roots to the tips. It is very effective at keeping moisture in your hair without leaving it greasy or heavy.  Using organic unrefined shea butter will undoubtedly revitalize the look of your hair.

Additionally, organic unrefined shea butter is a semi-soft butter that delivers an oil-like texture that melts and rapidly absorbs upon skin contact. It is a skin-nourishing emollient which can be used on its own or blended well into a cosmetic ingredient such as lotions, creams, soaps, or shampoos . Other uses include:

  • Moisturiser
  • Lip Balm
  • Body Butter
  • Deodorant
  • Sunscreen or Sunscreen bars
  • Liquid Creme Foundation
  • Cuticle Cream

    Best Hair

    Published by Dawn Elliott on 18th Jan 2021

    I have only used this for a few weeks and I can not believe the difference in my hair. I made a treatment (Shae, castor oil, lavender) and left it in for an hour then washed with shampoo and no conditioner but my hair is soft and smoother than ever. I was never able to brush my hair after it dried because it would frizz. Now it is not frizzing at all. I will be buying more products to test them out. Unrefined Organic Shae Butter will be my staple.

    Smooth consistency but very smokey smell

    Published by Tivy on 11th Sep 2020

    I ordered a smaller batch of unrefined Shea butter elsewhere and was absolutely in love with the delicious smell - nutty and almost chocolatey with just a hint of smoke. I ordered a larger amount from N Essentials hoping for something similar and while the texture is lovely (smoother than my other shea butter) I was disappointed with the scent which was unpleasantly (very) smokey while also pungent/sharp. At a closer look the colours are also very slightly different with this N Essentials one being a purer white. Perhaps it has to do with where the Shea butter was from exactly? >>>>N-essentials: It's more to do with the fact that you ordered UNREFINED shea butter from us. Unrefined shea butter has a nutty smell and a ivory colour. You mentioned above that the shea that you used to get elsewhere is a purer white - this is REFINED shea butter. Refined shea doesn't have a smell.

    The Texture is not the same as other organic shea butters I have tried. The outcome is not as soft and smooth as other organic shea butters I have tried. I am so disappointed I have spent so much money thinking this was a cheaper option. However, delivery was fast! >>>>>N-esentials: From our discussion, we understand that you tried to whip the shea butter without melting it first or softening it. Cold whipping does not always provide for a smooth texture as it does not necessarily breakdown the fatty acids in the unrefined shea butter to provide for a smooth texture. The fatty acids re-harden at different rates to the rest of the shea butter which resulted in a sometimes grainy texture. To remedy this, you can add a carrier oil to dissolve the good fats and prevent it from re-hardening at different rates. Alternatively, you can try melting the unrefined shea butter and then whipping it to create a fluffy mixture.

    this is the first time I try to make my own beauty products at home and I am amazed at how good this is! I mixed it with a carrier oil (jojoba) and essential oils (lavander and tea tree) and I use it for face and body. I love that it's all natural
