USD




This butter extracted from the Shea Nut is unrefined and unprocessed in any way and there may be bits of impurities and  some sediments present (tiny bits of the shell, plant fibers, etc). Although batches vary to some extent, this product usually has a very strong nutty, pungent, oily aroma that is characteristic of a pure & natural Shea Butter from Ghana. Also present will be various natural inconsistencies in color including darker spots and grey streaks. It is solid at room temperature and rather hard in consistency.

Customers preferring a mild aroma and a more consistent texture should consider purchasing Shea Organic Butter – Refined (Ghana).

Please note: This is a natural and unprocessed product that is handcrafted without the use of sophisticated machinery and  therefore, the possible presence of some impurities cannot be excluded.

Common Uses: Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is known for its moisturizing and emollient properties. Rich in vitamins and fatty acids, it penetrates deeply and leaves a smooth, satiny finish. Shea Butter can be used to make massage butters, body butters, lip balms, and as a moisturizing agent in soaps and shaving creams.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 2 - 20 %
Balms: 5 – 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 1 – 10 %

Before adding natural raw butters to creams and lotions, it is recommended to temper them. Simply gently and slowly heat the butter until liquid, then let it cool completely. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C. This will improved the texture of the final product by reducing the potential for graininess.

When it is time to make your product, while using a hand blender, create a vortex in your cream or lotion and drizzle in the melted butter until fully incorporated. For adding to soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Shelf Life: This butter should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of 1 year when stored properly.

I use both this and the Shea Ultra refined in making lotions and soap. I have used other companies products and can clearly say this is superior. All of NDA's products are superior in quality, packaging and speed of delivery. Will buy again.

My third review and I must say NDA you don't disappoint. The shea butter has reduced in price since I last purchase/wrote a review. It is nice and creamy, has that nutty aroma and color that I am accustom to and it makes my products feel luxurious. My only complaint is that both of my shea butter containers contained shea butter that were not in chunks as before, but rather it seemed to have melded together and was gathered on one side of the container. Yes, both were like that. I am unsure if this was the fault of NDA or if during shipping and before picking it up at the shipping store (Fedex), my package was placed on the side (despite warnings on the box) and subject to heat. I just cut up and scraped what I could reach from the sides. All in all, a 5, NDA. Keep Up the Great Work!

Yikes, this does not smell nice at all, true to it's name it smells crude. I'm still giving it 5 stars though because when I made my bath truffles, my fragrance oil completely covered the off putting scent. For the price I'm excited to add it to my CP soaps and see what happens!

I have purchased and enjoyed this product since I stumbled upon this company in 2012 when I began creating my own products. This was actually my first order. I was a little more expensive at the time, but was still worth the price. I believe it was $8.00... yes, $8.00 for 2.2 pounds of goodness. I have consistently purchased this product because of the quality and price and I will continue to purchase. It works tremendously well in body and hair butters. Keep Up The Great Work, NDA!

I'm really happy with this Shea butter. It has a slightly sweet, almost waxy scent to it. The first time that I made a body butter with it, I did not whip enough air into the butter and it came out rather hard due to the Shea. However, my second attempt tuned out beautifully! The Shea does leave my butter a big granulated but it melts quickly and easily into the skin. I will continue to buy this due to its quality and how well it moisturizers!

I have worked with several suppliers of natural, unrefined shea butter, and NDA has the best. It has a beautiful texture (the lack of grittiness is wonderful) and that classic, nutty shea butter smell. The price is AMAZING! It works very well integrated into my cold process soaps, but my favorite use is in my body butters. A truly wonderful shea butter, and even though I ordered a ton of it, I am a little upset with myself that I didn't order even more :)

I don't usually write reviews, but I felt that I had to for this product. I was purchasing raw materials from another online source, but the shipping, packaging, and prices where sub-par. When I discovered this website I was looking for Shea Butter. Everyone sells it... including some rather shady people at the local flea market (almost glowing yellow or paper white with debris). But this SB is at a great price and has all the properties I look for when I am making my hair and body creations.

I am VERY impressed with this shea, and the price almost doesn't make sense. I can use this straight out of the jar and it melts right in and it works in well with carriers. No graininess that I can tell. It's pretty soft, but works in easier if you add just a touch of oil. I use raw grapeseed oil from NDA. Love it!

This is a great product! I made my husband some Drakka noir (type) shea butter soap and he loves it. The soap has olive oil, coconut, (sustainable) palm oil and shea butter and its just awesome on the skin. Also the NDA shea butter melts smooth and does not go gritty with gentle heat like some I have used in the past. I also make unscented, uncolored %10 shea butter soap that my customers just love. The soap is ivory in color and has a slight nutty smell that is very pleasant. The price is awesome as well. NDA will definately be my shea butter ( and other carrier oils) supplier from now on. :)

Excellent product, excellent price. I use this stuff just as is and I've had no stretch marks during two pregnancies. It also seems to be keeping wrinkles at bay better than anything else! The smell is nutty and totally natural. Doesn't bother me at all. In addition, unlike some bulk sellers, New Directions packages this very nicely - it presents well and makes for great storage in the fridge. Great company, keep up the good work!

Shea butter is just amazing and works wonders on a very dried skin. It is my go to butter in general. It seems to coat and protect the skin very well. A thin layer of this butter healed my dried and peeling nose quickly even when olive squalane and other serums and oils didn't work. Wonderful in lip balms along with cocoa butter and beeswax. Leaves the skin smooth and soft. NDA's shea butter is of excellent quality just like so many other oils and butters they carry. Although I would love to give 5 stars, I have to agree with the previous reviewer regarding black specs in the butter. It has been a problem for me as well, having to strain it. Otherwise, it is overall amazing and the price is great too.

I loved your Shea butter and how it feels in my creations. The only concern I have is that there are black specks in the butter which adds an extra step in my process because I'm forced to strain the melted butter to remove these particles. I've never seen had this issue with any other shea butter so this was a bit concerning. I would rate a 5 star if it wasn't for this problem.

what a great product - it may take a while to absorb, but the effect is worth the wait. I whip it with some EOs to make what I affectionately call "geezer butter" for my 80-year old dad's hands. he's a piano player and suffers from cracked cuticles in winter, but this shea butter helps to keep him supple and playing. I love the slightly smoky scent, too.

For the first time, I went through a Massachuetts winter with no skin cracks in my fingers as a result of using this butter. I've found no other product that has done that. I recently tried an East African shea butter, which is super creamy with low characteric odor, but though it has nice eye appeal, it doesn't work nearly as well as this butter for healing severely dry skin. Thank you NDA for making this product available at an affordable price.

I purchased it recently and boy it stinks. I don't know what characteristic odor means but it certainly isn't mild and nutty. Any ways mixed it with some apricot kernel oil since that is quickly absorbed and it doesn't smell as strong now. Next time I might buy the refined or the other type of shea. I can not stand the odor. I do have to admit that NDA has great choices and great prices. Plus I really like not having to buy from several different vendors.

The best thing I got during pregnancy. My skin stopped itching, I didn't get a single stretch mark on my belly. In winter I use it all over my body- sometimes I mix it with something that smells a little better, in summer I put it on hands and feet. Also great to use instead of eye cream (I have very sensitive eyes and shea never causes any problems). Great stuff!!!

You just cant get enough of this fabulous product! I use this Shea Butter with ND's Lotion base. It makes for a fabulous lotion that I cant keep in stock due to high demand. It leaves your skin soft and silky. It also helps with problem dry skin by hydrating it, and locking in the moisture. My customers love how they can wash their hands, and yet they are still soft and silky from the lotion I create using New Direction products. I also use this body butter in my soap as well by melting it down and adding it to my Melt and Pour soap Base. When using the specially blended soap your skin is super soft. Thanks New Directions for carrying such superb items!

I love this shea butter! Great price, too, and the plastic jar is convenient packaging. The scent is nutty/oily... not particularly attractive, but it's not offensive, and it's very mild and does not stick around. The benefits of pure, unrefined shea butter more than make up for its scent! This is my favorite butter of all. It's great for dry spots, chapped lips, and it's the only thing that can heal up my skin after an eczema flare-up!

I had bought some unrefined, organically grown shea butter from another supplier, and loved it. Then I tried this one at N.D. in the 2.2lb. size, and love it even more. It feels a little softer/thinner yet more luxurious and creamy than the other brand, and less greasy. The natural bitter odor is not a problem because I can't smell it on my skin after a few minutes. I use it straight on my feet because the alkaline soil here in Arizona really dries the feet. I also sometimes use it straight on my face and hands. Mostly I use it melted via double boiler method and added to body lotions - either my own homemade ones or inexpensive commercial lotions; either way, it makes them wonderfully rich and luxurious.

I look forward to buying this. Saw many reviews on YouTube. The texture seems better than any other I have ever purchased. Shea butter is generally cheap but NDA seems to sell it for a slightly cheaper price than others. I also like how NDA packages their butters in a jar broken in pieces. Much easier to work with. I have a shea butter that came in a block wrapped in plastic and its so hard to use. Def will be buying soon.

I just received my shea and it's very nice on the skin. Shipping was very fast. I expected there to be a smell but it is extremely potent-like nut and campfire. However it seems to lessen after a little while on your skin. I'm going to try scenting a bit to see if it helps. I would suggest the refined shea butter if you don't like strong smells. That is what i will be getting next time. even though I wanted to avoid the refining. Thank you for the product

I had purchased Shea butter from a number of places until I came across your website. By far the best price!! The quality is on par with any of the better suppliers of Shea butter. This is an indisposable product with countless uses, my favorite so far being a whipped Shea, Cocoa and Rosehip seed oil Belly Butter for my every expanding pregnant tummy!! New Directions, you never seem to disappoint with your fantastic selection of products
