Shea Butter Unrefined

INCI: Butyrospermum parkii Butter

Description: Shea Butter is extracted from the shea nut and has a yellow, buttery colour with a rich, creamy aroma. Shea Butter is hailed for its healing, protecting and moisturising properties. Rich in cinnamon acid, it also protects the skin from UV rays and therefore can be included in skin care products for after sun care. The first choice in natural skin care and fine body care products, this butter forms a breathable, water-resistant film and is the leading natural product for moisturising.
Uses: Typically used in soaps, lip balms, body and massage butters, body and hand lotions, shaving preparations, facial moisturizers and bath oils.
Skin Type: All skin and hair types but particularly for dry, mature skin and hair
Country of Origin: Ghana
Product Type: 100% Pure Butter
Recommended Usage: It is oil soluble (not water soluble) and is usually incorporated via the oil phase when preparing emulsions. It has no known incompatibilities. 
Storage: It should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of up to 24 months from opening when stored properly.

I ordered this unrefined shea butter since the refined was out of stock for a long time. Unfortunately this can't be used in any of my formulations because of the extremely strong unpleasant smell. The colour is rather gray not yellow and the aroma far from creamy - it is very strong and acidic even. Nothing that i've experienced before with unrefined shea butter.

Strong unpleasant smell

Did not expect this shea butter to have such a strong repulsive smell. Not to my taste.

Feeling disappointed

The butter came looking grayish and grainy. I have been ordering shea from a different supplier for 3 years and it was never grainy. There is no indication that this shea butter melted in transit. When I melted it together with mango butter, I was surprised that it melted BEFORE the mango. I used it to make my tried and tested body butter formula, and it came out looking more like lotion. All other ingredients were the same as before, only shea and mango butters were from this supplier. The "lotion" ended up becoming lumpy. The quality is good, I can use it, but it has no commercial value. Feeling disappointed...

Best on the Market

I have been buying Shea butter for over 10 years and from many different suppliers looking for the best I can get. I found it here about a year ago and won't buy from anywhere else. This beautiful raw unrefined shea butter is the best I have found available anywhere. I would recommend it to everyone. I go through 25kg in about 2 to 3 months
