Natural Alternative to Petroleum Jelly: Crude Ghanaian Shea Butter works wonders for softening rough skin areas like elbows and knees, providing an alternative to petroleum jelly without any synthetic additives.

Soft and Lustrous Hair Conditioning: Shea Butter deeply nourishes and conditions hair, making it softer, healthier, and easier to manage.


Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) is sourced from Shea Nuts of the Karité tree and is known for its rich nutrient profile and exceptional moisturizing abilities. Enriched with essential fatty acids such as Linoleic, Palmitic, Stearic, and Oleic acids, this Shea Butter is a key ingredient in beauty regimens and cosmetic products.
This raw, unrefined Shea Butter may contain impurities like tiny shell bits and plant fibers, typical of the pure Ghanaian variety. Natural color inconsistencies, including darker spots and gray streaks, may also be present. With a solid consistency at room temperature, its texture may vary slightly from batch to batch.
For those seeking a milder aroma and more consistent texture, consider Shea Organic Butter – Refined (Ghana).


  • Refreshing Lotions & Creams: Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) can be added to lotions and creams at 2-20% concentrations. Lower concentrations provide a light, moisturizing effect, while higher ones offer intense moisturization and nourishment for dry skin types. We recommend tempering natural raw butters before adding to creams and lotions. Gently and slowly heat the butter until it liquifies, then let it cool completely. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C (or about 90°F to 95°F). This process will improve the texture of the final product by reducing the potential for graininess. When it’s time to make your product, use a hand blender to swirl your cream or lotion and drizzle in the melted butter until fully incorporated.    
  • Beautifying Balms: Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) can be used on its own as a balm, or can be blended at 5-99%, depending on your product’s desired consistency and richness. Higher concentrations create thicker balms ideal for targeting dry, rough areas like elbows and heels.
  • Natural Luxury Soaps: In soap formulations, Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) is typically incorporated at 5-20%, or 1 tablespoon per pound. This helps to enhance the moisturizing properties of the soap while adding a creamy lather and a luxurious feel to the skin. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
  • Nourishing Shampoos & Conditioners: For hair care products like shampoos and conditioners, Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) can be included at 1-10% concentrations to help condition hair, leaving it soft, manageable, and deeply nourished without weighing it down.
  • Rejuvenating Face Masks: Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) can be incorporated into face masks at concentrations of 5-20%. Its rich texture helps to soothe and soften skin, leaving it radiant and rejuvenated.
  • Melt into a Massage: Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) makes for a lovely massage butter when used at concentrations of 20-100%, depending on the desired consistency and glide. Its emollient properties make an ideal moisturizer for skin during a massage, leaving it feeling smooth and nourished.
  • Be Smooth Shaving Creams: Shea Butter – Crude (Ghana) can be added at 5-20% concentrations in shaving creams to help provide lubrication for a more comfortable shave while moisturizing the skin and reducing irritation.
