Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

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

What are common uses for shea butter?

Shea butter 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. In its organic and unrefined form, Shea butter is known to be high in Vitamins A, E and F. This makes it very good for skincare, as it can help promote good skin balance and makes skin look healthy.

For centuries, shea butter has been used to keep skin and hair in good condition and is particularly useful for applying to sun damaged skin or skin that is dehydrated, as it helps with skin elasticity. It can be applied directly onto stretch marks and skin blemishes to reduce the visibility of these marks.

    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
