      100% pure unrefined Shea Butter

       

      Shea butter contains various fatty acids which each have a specific temperature range where they melt and solidify. When the butter is melted and heat is unevenly distributed some fatty acids may solidify quicker than others, resulting in a grainy texture. Sometimes these grains take days, weeks or even months to appear. There is nothing wrong with the butter if it is grainy, but most prefer a smooth, buttery texture.

      To prevent graininess and grain formation you will need to make sure that heat is evenly distributed during the cool down process. This is best achieved by constantly stirring the melted butter during cool down. Unfortunately simply pouring melted shea butter into jars and leaving to cool at room temperature without evenly distributing the heat will likely result in grains. So rather gently stir your melted butter while it cools for best results.

        • To add products to your cart, either use the categories to search for items, or use the search bar. Once you have found what you want, simply click on our gold 'Add to Cart' button to add any products to your shopping cart.
        • You can click on your trolley icon at any time to view items in your cart and be taken to the checkout page.
        • On the cart page you'll see an overview of the products in your cart. You can add or remove quantities or remove items as desired. The shopping cart will immediately update.  
        • Checkout is completed in 3 simple steps:
          1. 'Sign In' to your account, or 'Create an Account' or 'Checkout as a Guest' if this is the first time you're shopping with us.

    It's shea butter, not as amazing as I had anticipated, but does the job never the less

    Incorrect packaging

    It was disappointing to find the product not in the container it's advertised in but nonetheless can't fault the shea butter as it's moisturizing and doesn't clog my pores
