Raw Unrefined Shea Butter 1 lb

I've read up on Shea Butter alot and have been intrigued by how much supposed healing power it contains for our skin. A lot of makers of products that contain shea butter say that the best kind to use is the unrefined, unbleached kinds. Otherwise, through these processes, a depleting of "the goods" shall we say, happens. Many of the healing and medicinal properties, the vitamins and minerals that are naturally in the shea butter are broken down. -

I've been on the fence as to where to get some good shea butter. I figured I would buy it locally first and see if I liked it, before I got online and got it from some of my favorite online stores. It's official that I love shea butter. I use it and it leaves my skin feeling really clarified and smooth. I also use it - get this - as a hair shampoo! And my hair loves it. It comes out feeling soft and just good and clean. However.......I used it on my face one time......and...needless to say after I left the bathroom my kids kind of jumped back from me... ha! It left my skin feeling super tight and super dry. I had to quickly revert back to my tea tree oil face wash to correct the situation.

So as long as I'm not using it for my face, I love the stuff.

Where'd I get it? Why at my local Health Foods store of course! A 4 oz. bar for $3.49. Find it on Amazon where they have 5 new from $2.50. Also, by purchasing this soap a portion of the sale goes towards educating children in Benin, West Africa. I got the African Black Organic Shea Butter Soap by Out Of Africa, but it's not just for people of color. Interestingly enough, it was my very caucasian friend "Peggy" from the Health Food store that recommended this to me because she uses it daily she told me. This soap don't discriminate, so try it out whoever you are!

i must be doing something wrong with my shbutter--it makes my hair dry---it is because i added evoo in it?--i thought it was becuz of the weather--help a sistah out

@ EssenseVibez...I forgot to mention in the post that this contains only 20% shea butter in it and the rest is vegetable derivatives. I just lather the bar in my hands and then rub the lather into my head and scalp pretty good. Then I rinse with warmish water. I would think adding EVOO would help to add some slip to your hair, right? Interesting...

My best, Lynn

I love shea butter i use it on my skin in my hair i have a box of shea butter so i have to find creative ways to use it up. I just made a hair butter with 2 part coconut oil and 1 part shea butter with some added essential oil and it makes my hair soft and shinny.
