Everyday Essentials: Unrefined Shea Butter

Updated: Feb 12

We now carry a 4oz tin of unrefined shea butter. Unrefined shea butter makes a perfect full body moisturizer for your hands, face, feet, and everywhere in between. We chose to carry unrefined shea butter because refined (or processed) shea butter loses some of its essential nutrients during processing. Unrefined shea butter even has more fatty acids and more vitamin E than cocoa butter, and unlike cocoa butter, it contains vitamin A.


When selecting your shea butter it is always good to buy handcrafted shea butter because then you will support women artisans in Ghana and help them provide for themselves and their communities. A vast majority of the shea butter on the market is machine processed, so by buying our shea butter you are supporting all natural ancestral practices. The machine processing (even for unrefined shea butter) includes chemical processing, whereas handcrafted shea butter does not.


So what are the benefits of using shea butter in your skincare routine? The most obvious one is that it relieves dry skin. It also helps to prevent cell damage and keeps your skin supple with regular use due to its high nutrient content. It also has strong anti-inflammatory properties and reduces redness and swelling.


We only use sustainably sourced organic ingredients in our shea butter. So give your skin the ultimate treat and order yours here!
