Organic Filtered Shea Butter - Unrefined

This lovely Shea Butter is produced by a woman’s cooperative in Ghana.

The ripe nuts of the shea tree are collected by the women after they have fallen to the ground.
The green edible peel is removed and the nuts are sun dried before being roasted and kneaded by hand to produce the soft shea butter.

The woman also hand weave the baskets used to transport the finished shea butter.

After washing with water to remove impurities and skimming/separating the butter from the water, the crude solid butter is transported to the refining plant in Holland where it is received by a certified importer for organic oils and fats.

There the butter is melted, then filtered, cooled and packed. The final butter is a rich yellow to cream colour with a characteristic odour.

CAS Number: 91080-23-8
EC Number: 293-515-7
It is a superb emollient and is excellent for conditioning the skin.
Moisturises the skin and restores its elasticity.
Shea Butter contains natural SPF but this is not high enough to be used as a sun protection product.
The low level does, however, give some daily defence against the damaging effects of UV light.
It contains phytosterols which help to nourish the skin.
Superb to use in hair products especially dry and processed hair.
Typical Fatty Acid profile;
3%-9% Palmitic Acid
34% -50% Stearic Acid
38% -50% Oleic Acid (Omega 9)
2% -9% Linoleic Acid (Omega 6)
Due to natural variation in the product, some batches may have stronger smells that others.


Use 1% - 100%.
In facial products, we would not recommend using more than 3% as this is already an effective level.
When adding shea butter to your formulations, don't overheat it as this can cause the butter to crystallize when it cools down.
This then feels gritty in the finished cream. It is better to keep it melted at a low heat for a few minutes longer as this allows to fatty esters to melt better.
Use in creams, lotions, serums, night creams, hair packs, massage blends, baby products, hair treatments, lip balms, soaps, eczema and psoriasis prone skin, chapped and dry sore skin.
Excellent when blended with Vitamin E for nourishing damaged skin.
