Product Contains 1lb (16oz) of Raw Unrefined Shea Butter, derived from the Ghana Shea Tree. Block is rich in Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving a number of skins conditions, including eczema, and dermatitis. Additionally, Raw Apothecary Shea Butter cream has properties to treat skin allergies, insect bites, sunburns, frostbites, and a number of other conditions of the skin. Vitamin E is a very powerful anti-oxidant, which when combined with Vitamins A and C, slows signs of aging and the degeneration of skin cells. Research has shown that Vitamin E protects the skin from cancer-causing free radicals. Vitamin E benefits the skin in several additional ways: Vitamin E lessens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. INCLUDING STRECTH MARKS!! Vitamin E also protects the epidermis layer of the skin from early stages of ultra violet light damage. Vitamin E, if applied at least 20 minutes before exposure to sunlight, will absorb deep into the epidermis enhancing the benefits of sunscreen, finally, it is well known for its proven ability to retain moisture in the skin. Vitamin F is a rich source of the essential fatty acids (Linoleic). These fatty acids are beneficial in moisturizing the skin and rejuvenating rough, dry or chapped skin and helps soften and revitalizes dry or damaged hair.

The BEST Shea Butter I've ever used

Shea butter has helped my skin drastically recover over the years. I'm used to using it in my skin care routine, but this was the first time I've bought a whole pound of shea butter at once, and the first time I used Raw Apothecary brand. I'm glad to say that I'm extremely impressed with this purchase. Unlike other shea butters I've used, Raw Apothecary is not rock hard at first. You can feel that it's already quite soft just by poking the resealable plastic bag it comes in. It is extremely easy to work with thanks to the wooden knife included. I like how the shea butter does not feel grainy, unlike other brands I've used. It is creamy to the touch and feels extra nice on the skin. I am very pleased with the shipping time, packaging, and quality of this product, and hope to buy from Raw Apothecary again!

Work for very dry skin but has unique smell

I purchased this Shea butter on Feb 9. With Prime no rush shipping, I received it on Feb 14. It came as a block in a zip bag + a sealed bag. Just as the photos show, the package includes a wood knife as well. Because of my daughter, I have tried the following moisturizers: Johnson & Johnson Baby oil, Olive oil, SebaMed Baby Lotion, SebaMed Baby Cream, Cetaphil Skin Moisturizer (Formulated for Eczema), Eucerin Professional Repair Lotion, Eucerin Calming Crème, Eucerin Original Healing Repair Crème, Eucerin Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Crème, Medela Tender Care Lanolin, Aquaphor Healing Ointment (Dry, Cracked, and Irritated Skin Protectant), Laroche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5, Organic Coconut oil, Eucerin Baby Eczema Crème, Aveeno Eczema Cream, Lucas Papaw Ointment, Raw Apothecary Unrefined Raw Shea Butter. Raw Apothecary Unrefined Raw Shea Butter is one of the moisturizers that I like and also helps my daughter's Eczema, especially on the very dry area. It keeps the skin moisturized better than lotions and creams. However, in the winter time, it takes some effort to get it melts and absorbs by skin. I think this will be easier to work with in the summer time. The Shea butter has a unique smell that I cannot describe (close to nuts). I first don't like the smell but later get used to it.

Best Shea Butter I've ever purchased..

I ordered my product on a Friday. I received it that Sunday. First time I ever got a Sunday delivery. It is the best Shea Butter I have ever purchase. It's smooth, not grainy at all. It has a slight nutty smoky smell. I made a batch of whipped shea butter today.

Perfect for Hair & Skin Recipes!

I love everything about it! My daughter and I have sensitive skin so I have to be very cognizant of what I put on her skin and hair. I discovered shea butter about two years ago and had a great seller on amazon I was ordering from, but it seems his product has been declining in quality so I was open to another supplier. Based off the awesome reviews I took a chance and tried it, and I wasn't disappointed! Using one of my 2 16oz pkgs, I whipped it with some oils for our hair and when it was nice and creamy, I poured my creme into two canning jars... This morning it was light, creamy, and rubbed right into my hair! I want to buy in bulk so I can make more for the family!


This product rocks. The quality of the raw unrefined Shea butter was on point and made my skin feel instantly moisturized. The item was shipped and delivered right away. I am so happy I made this purchase!

I am new to using raw plant butters & love all the information I have read about all their wonderful uses. I purchased this shea butter to mix with carrier oils and essential oils. I was given some shea butter to try and it was hard as a rock initially and that's what I expected from this product, but was happy to find it was smoother and easier to use than expected. It does seem to have a gritty quality for the first few seconds of rubbing it in my hands but that disappears almost immediately and it melts into a wonderful silky smooth oil that goes on beautifully.

Totally worth it.

I love this stuff. I bought it with the intension of using it on my curly, curly hair and I works so well! My hair stays shiny and hydrated for days after using this. I have to say though, it has been a god send to my skin. I rub it behind my neck and my shoulders. It has become my favorite moisturizer. One can also melt it down and mix into anything for DIY treatments. All in all, great for skin and hair.
