The Top 10 Uses of Shea Butter Moisturizer for dry skin Eczema cream Blemish cream For softer smoother skin For burns Wrinkle reduction cream Moisturizer for dry hair Shaving cream Anti-itch cream Stretch mark prevention cream The Shelf Life of Shea Butter The shelf life of Shea butter is 18-24 months when kept in a cool dry place. After that time the healing properties of Shea butter are less effective but it is still a good moisturizer. Application of the Shea Butter Shea butter melts at body temperature. For easy application warm Shea butter onto palms until it is completely melted and smooth on. Shea Butter absorbs quickly, penetrates deeply and coats the skin with a fine film; thereby diminishing water loss and leaving the skin softened and protected. The Amazing Properties of Shea Butter Shea butter is the best natural product to protect, heal and improve skin. It is prized because it contains a real cocktail of elements good for the skin. Among these, is first a very high content of Essential Fatty Acids, more than in all other vegetable butter. These fatty acids are oleic, stearic, linoleic and palmitic acid. They play a very important moisturizing, softening, and anti-inflammatory role, and help renew the cutaneous cells. Shea butter also contains vitamins A, D, E, and K that have a recognized effect against skin aging. It is also rich in phytosterols with protecting and regenerating virtues. The manufacturing process has a great influence on the properties and efficiency of Shea butter. If it is refined or processed, it loses its vitamins and part of its efficiency. The Body Butter Store brings you a handmade certified organic Shea butter that is a guarantee of purity and higher quality.

I love It! I'm a Shea Butter Addict

I am now addicted to unrefined shea butter! It's like crack for me now, yes this product comes in a double lined bag (so I would mail it to someone that is home to receive the package, cause IT WILL melt) and is a bear to try to wipe out of the bag that it comes in but after I get done with that mess, I whip it with some extra virgin olive oil and its heaven! It really penetrates the skin and provides moisture all day long. Some people complain about the smell, but honestly the smell dissipates within minutes of applying and it really isn't SO bad...maybe they have super sensitive noses. It does have a SLIGHT nutty smell. I ordered this back in March and will be ordering more here shortly, because I'm running out (and I really can't have that). Once whipped I put it in 5 32oz jars with wide mouths that I got from Micheal's and use it from there, I put the jars in my dresser drawers as to keep it out of the light because I read somewhere that it should be kept in a dark place but I went through 2 1/2 of the 5 jars in the 3 three months and had previously gave the others away (I'm writing this review on June 16. 2011). Also, I have a friend whose mother has Psoriasis and she stated that it has helped her a lot because the shea butter moisturizes her skin so it doesn't crack and cause her pain and she can apply it over her open sores and it doesn't burn, she said she's tried everything and this stuff is thebomb.com.

Great butter! Nice to find the beige stuff...

Remember-this is raw shea butter, so it will have imperfections, but it hasn't had all the good stuff stripped from it. I like the beige better because it doesn't impart a yellow tone to everything. I didn't find it had a strong odor-it smelled like shea. If you don't like the scent, then get deodorized. I've never had a problem covering the smell of shea butter, and I've always used raw shea. There will be leftover stuff sometimes in the butter-if you want to get the stuff out like the strings and specs, melt down what you're going to use and filter through a strainer with a coffee filter. If you want all that stuff done ahead of time, you are going to pay more for your shea butter. Works just fine for me in lotions and soap.

Great stuff

Love it. It has great texture, scent, firmness and coloring. It is exactly what it says it is. I ordered 5 lbs (80 oz) and received just over that (81.35 oz) in a double sealed plastic bag. Was a bit of a pain scraping the shea off the bag but not really a huge issue, I just used what I couldn't easily transfer off the bag on my skin.

I threw it out.

As a long-time Shea butter user I am very disappointed in this. Initially it seemed OK, albeit a bit gray-toned, and I stored it while using my other brand which I love. Ordinarily I melt my other brands of Shea butter in a double boiler and add to my regular lotions to make it richer and creamier. My other brands of Shea melt and blend in easily. Occasionally in winter I'll use it straight on my skin, and it does not leave my skin greasy or sticky. Today I finally tried melting some of this Shea in a double-boiler, and it immediately started turning dark gray. The longer you heat it the darker it becomes - almost black. I tried another small batch and the same thing happened. I will not add blackish oil to my lotion, so I threw it out. Then I rubbed some un-melted shea on my hand and found it to be very sticky and difficult to apply. I do not want this product on my skin, so I threw away the remainder - almost 5 lbs! - in the garbage. What a waste of money.

very good experience

this is my first time using raw shea butter, so i have nothing to compare it against, but i am extremely happy with the product and the service. the shea butter arrived within a few days. i had to contact the seller because of a mistake that i made and he took care of the issue right away. the butter was exactly as described - and it is a pretty good amount. i made my first batch of whipped body butter yesterday and the only difficulty i am having is trying to figure out how much essential oil to use so that i can smell it over the shea butter :) based on my experience, i would recommend this seller and will be using him again.

Great product

I've ordered pure Shea Butter from other sites and by far this is the best. Shipping is a bit pricey but very fast. I would order again from this vendor.

Precision & Speed

The product itself was fresh and handled with care. But what truly set the bar high for me with this company was how quickly I received my package! It's creamy Shea butter is double wrapped and sealed carefully. It's unrefined so there are minute traces of nut remnants. Over all I'd definitely shop here again! I use the butter in my hair & my hair loves it!!! You can see the results at [...]. I don't have a tutorial for it, but it's what I used in my bentonite clay tutorial!!!

great product

I used shea butter from head to toe. I make natural hair products and hand creams with it. I received the exact amount I ordered.

Good Product, but they raised the price...

I purchased 5 pounds of this Ivory Shea Butter from Saaqin (Halal Every Day) about 2 months back when it was only $12. I can't understand why it's jumped up in price. It's fairly clean, with very few foreign items in it (like sticks). It's got a very nice, nutty smell. Mine came in a large chunk with a few broken bits in the bag. It's very soft, as is, and I process it with emu oil or olive oil into whipped butter for personal use. I have eczema and my husband has rosacea. The end result after whipping is a nice, light, white emollient. I can't complain about the quality; I'm just shocked at the price increase. There are others on Amazon who sell the same quality for less money, so until Saaqin drops the price again, look around.

Awsome

I ordered this item to use with my soap and body butter production. I think this product is awsome. It was delivered on time and it makes a wonderful soap and a scrumptious whipped body butter that melts when it touches your skin. I would recommend this product to anyone.
