NOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, please allow a minimum of 6 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Cancellations are not allowed because an item's not in stock. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk, essential and fragrance oils sold in 5+ lbs. and certain quantities of packaging materials.Our refined shea butter from Ghana is cold expeller pressed and carbon treated to remove the impurities. It is not solvent extracted, but mechanically extracted, there are no impurities left whatsoever, this butter is almost odorless. Shea is extremely moisturizing and gentle to the skin. In soaps, it gives a very luxurious feel to the finished product. It can also be added to creams and lotions or used alone for massage, skin cream, applied directly on small skin burns or applied to hair.
Shea butter is not hard and crumbly like cocoa butter, its color ranges from white to ivory white; it is creamy at normal temperature.
Shea butter is remarkably high in unsaponifiables, up to 11%, making it a superfatting material for soapmaking. To use in soapmaking (2-5% of your total fats and oils) melt the shea butter at very low temperature with the other solid fats. To superfat with shea butter add 1-2/3 tablespoons per 5 pounds of soap, melted and cooled to approximately 75F (24C) just before adding the scent. SAP value: 180.0. INCI: Butyrospermum parkii.

The best I have used
I am not buying my Shea from anyone but Camden-Grey! It is the best of any I have tried. One huge PLUS is the fact they do not melt it to pack it in plastic buckets!!! I love the smell of the butter too. I have had no issues with any of the materials I buy from CG. Thank You CG for selling quality and taking good care of your customers!!!

This is the best quality and priced refined butter I have tried. It is wonderful for my cosmetics and body recipes as there is no odor to interfere with the delicate scents. It goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly and feels great. I use so much I had to get 5lbs! Thank you for a great product!

I love the texture of this shea butter and how it is so great to use when you want to make body butter, deodorant, and lotions.

I have purchased this item a few times now from Camden and am very happy with it. Other shea butters I have used have been grainy. This one stays creamy when I use it. It's also good for acne prone skin as it does not clog pores. Love it.

Smooth as Silk
I had been looking all over to find a smooth, non-grainy Shea Butter, but I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. The key was getting ultraRefined and I was so happy to have found it here. I had my fingers crossed when it arrived and to my delight, it was perfectly smooth, creamy and had a wonderful scent. This is a great, high quality product as is to be expected from Camden Grey. I will be purchasing again.
