    Shea butter, natural unrefined. Shea butter is also called African Karite butter. This unrefined butter is expressed from the pits of the fruit of the African butter tree. This butter is smooth and its color may range from very light beige to yellow/green, the color may vary from batch to batch. Unlike our refined shea butters, this butter has a an odor which will also vary from batch to batch. We do not accept returns because you do not like the color or odor; if you have concerns, please order a sample first.

    Our shea butter is cold expeller pressed and carbon treated to remove the impurities. It is not solvent extracted, but mechanically extracted. This unrefined shea butter does not go through extra carbon treatment steps as our refined shea butters do. There are no impurities left whatsoever. 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 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 with the other solid fat. To superfat with shea butter add 1-2/3 tablespoons per 5 pounds of soap, melted and cooled to approximately 75 deg.F (24 deg.C) just before adding the scent. SAP value: 180.0. INCI: Butyrospermum parkii.

    Excellent as a moisturizer
    (Philo, IL, US) | December 7th, 2014
    I bought the shea butter to use in my homemade lotion, but so far have only used it by itself as a moisturizer. It does the job! In the winter, I get dry, chapped hands. Using shea butter as an overnight moisturizer has really helped with dry skin. I gave it four instead of five stars because of the odor. I'd never bought non-deodorized shea butter and didn't know what to expect. Probably next time I would get the deodorized product, but I think the smell will dissipate enough in lotion that it won't be too noticeable, especially with essential oils. It is sort of an earthy/meaty smell. Rather strange, kind of strong, but not too persistent or pervasive. I've used it during the day and so far haven't gotten any funny looks!
    This shea butter has a great texture
    (Boston, MA, US) | November 20th, 2014
    This shea butter's texture is great for mixing up a hair pomade, or a good lip balm. It is very easy to break into pieces without getting greasy hands/gloves. No bad odor, just the natural scent of shea butter. This is the shea butter I will use from now on when making my hair products. =)
    Great for the skin.

    This butter is amazing, in lotions, salves and lip balms. I use this with a combination of Coconut oil and Calendula infused oil in formulations for eczema.
    Amazing Butter

    I absolutely love this shea butter! I'm finding ways to mix and use it for products that are great for my hair and my skin. I have eczema and the raw shea butter is definitely helping! It mixes great and is a great quality butter!
    Amazing for Skin Problems & Natural Hair

    In my family we have a variety of skin disorders ranging from mild ichthyosis to eczema and a combination of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Babassu, Olive Oil has been a downright miracle. This has also worked wonders in our hair ranging from 2B- 4C.

    This is a keeper!
    (Nampa, ID, US) | December 5th, 2011
    This is the real deal. If you are thinking of trying Shea butter, you must try this. The smell is heavenly, it melts like a dream and in body butters, lotions, balms and lip products you cannot beat it. This stuff is the best!! Will be putting in a order this week for more.. love love love it!
    (Pensacola, FL, US) | November 7th, 2011
    I was used to buying the yellow Shea butter, but upon further investigating I found that yellow is not the best quality. This shea butter is GREAT! It has hardly any odor, and is a nice off-white color. It's the real deal people, and worth every penny!
    The Magic of Shea
    (Miami, FL, US) | June 18th, 2011
    I was so happy when I received my order of unrefined Shea Butter from Camden Grey yesterday. I haven't stopped touching it! It's beautiful! It has a beautiful ivory color and a faint pleasant scent. It feel delightful in my hand and is most certainly a top quality product. The look, feel, (and price!) is hard to beat! Thank you Camden Grey!
    So Many Uses, A Must Have
    (Biloxi, MS, US) | February 7th, 2011
    I am very pleased with this product. I have used it in my cold process soap and lip balms. It gives that extra moisture to both soap and lip balms. In raw firm, a little dab will moisturizes my whole hand. I love the luxurious creamy feel from this product!
