Raw material is approved by ECOCERT GREENLIFE, conform to the COSMOS standard. ECOCERT Greenlife is the global leader in the certification of natural or organic cosmetics and raw materials. By implementing and enforcing the COSMOS standard, the organization has united the international cosmetics sector with the aim of achieving long-term sustainability. These products have independently verified all relevant aspects from sourcing to distribution, including environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes, avoidance of GMO and prohibited substances, and the use of eco-friendly.

This Shea Butter is highly refined, pure white, and has a smooth texture. It is very soft and has no discernible scent to it.

Common Uses: Used predominantly for skin care, Shea Butter is hailed for its skin protecting and emollient properties. It has high amounts of unsaponifiable matters, Vitamin E and other natural elements, and is a perfect natural moisturizing agent for the skin, particularly the face and hands. It penetrates deeply and leaves a smooth, satiny finish.

Please Note: Shea Butter in some instances may cause graininess in a product, though this more refined butter may not. It is a natural occurrence, and if it does happen, to achieve a smooth texture and consistency we recommend that the Shea Butter be tempered before using by being heated until liquefied, mixed thoroughly, cooled off and stored in cold temperatures.

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

When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture is soft enough to be incorporated into the final product. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in 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.

Just received in mail today. It’s as not creamy as I expected it be. There were blocks of soft butter instead of a smooth Tub of butter. Felt a bit waxy. It does melt when rubbed on skin. We’ll see how it does when I make body butter with it.

This the only Shea butter i have purchased but not the only Shea butter I have used. I have purchased very expensive Shea butter hair and skin products and thought the results were okay. Other product i have tried left a grainy feel on my skin. The best description I can give this product is velvety. It made my skin feel soft and pleasant to touch. I definitely will use on my skin, and used a little on my hair but I can't wait to try it as a hair conditioner for my natural hair. I am certain the results will be awesome..

This is such a wonderful butter!! I generally purchase Organic Unrefined from another company, I can't get it in bulk & it's pretty expensive, but the quality is wonderful! BUT I want to be able to offer my customer's other options, if they aren't willing to spend that much on a Shea Body butter. So I purchased this to use in conjunction with the Organic Unrefined for my customers who don't want to pay top dollar for an only Organic Body Butter & this whips up in such a creamy & smooth texture, even I have grown to love it!! I never understood why people who choose refined over unrefined... but now I get it. I will continue to purchase this Ultra Refined Shea Butter as long as it's offered here!!!

This is the only shea butter I've used so I can't compare it to any other. I've bought it twice and I love it. It has a very creamy texture and I like that it doesn't have a scent. I've used it in cp soap and body butters. It performs great in both. It is also priced extremely well for someone just starting to make their own beauty products.
