    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.

    Great Shea Butter - Reasonable Price
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I have re-ordered Shea Butter from Camden Grey multiple times and I keep coming back for more. It is great butter, melts nicely, is non-grainy, and works great in my soaps. There is little discernible scent and it works great in lotions, bath and body products and cold processed soap.
    Love it

    White, Creamy & Never Grainy

    I've ordered this shea butter multiple times. Every batch has been white, creamy and very smooth (no crumbles, grains or separation). The color changes nominally from batch to batch. It retains a hint of the natural scent of shea, but not so much that it contrasts with fragrances. I use this in most of my formulas - from lip bam to lotion to soap. It's outstanding every time. One of my favorite products from CG.
    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.

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
