Description 


Shea Butter -
Our Shea Butter is obtained by cold pressing the seeds of the karite tree (and is then refined). Our shea butter is a creamy white solid that is ultra-refined and has a neutral smell. The Shea Butter, Ultra Refined is physically decolorized using organic clays (diatomaceous earth, aka "bleaching clays") to remove color and impurities. The odor is removed via injection of steam to "blow-off" the volatile oils which contribute to shea butter's sharp, objectionable odor. There are no chemicals usedto process our shea butter.

Our shea butter will start to melt on contact with the skin, making it an excellent choice for lip balms and lotion bars. Suggested Use Levels: Lotions & Creams: 3-5% Balms: 5-100% Bar Soaps: 3-6%.

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:  Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit
Common Name:   Shea Butter

Love this Shea butter!
I love this stuff. It comes in a nice block and it's super easy to work with. It has a nice color and is very creamy. I use this in most of my cp soaps. I also have used this to make body butter for Christmas gifts and I've had people rave about the butter and wanting more. I ordered several times and will definitely keep on ordering! :)

Lovely, silky shea
I love the smooth, silky feel of this shea butter. I've used in both CP soaps and body lotion bars...as well as just straight onto my skin and enjoy that luxurious feel of shea. I like the refined as the fragrance of unrefined shea is rather strong-not unpleasant-but definitely easier to fragrance the refined for the more delicate scents of my soaps and lotions. A word of advice to those living in Arizona, order well before the summer hits. I discovered the hard way and ordered mine in May and as it arrives in bags, it had melted all over my order and the box. I don't think the delivery driver was too happy...haha. I will remember to order no later than April or in October. But, I WILL be ordering this again.

The best Shea
This is the best shea butter I have used. No need to temper and it does not turn my lotions gritty. it is perfection.

I love it!
I made the whipped belly recipe with Shea butter and absolutely love it. It has been a best seller with my clients. How long is the shelf life? Can I add a con preserving agent and if so which one you recommend me to ue?

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Maria! I'm so glad you love our Shea Butter! Shea Butter has a shelf life of one year. Preservatives protect against bacteria growth from the introduction of water to a product so it would not keep your butter from going bad. You can read more about how preservatives work in our Talk It Out Tuesday: Preservatives blog post. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Excellent product
I used this shea butter and it is far superior to the other shea butter I tried. I made a moisturizer with this shea butter and another batch from another source. The quality of this shea butter resulted in a far superior product. I've learned my lesson ... I'll only use this shea butter.
