 Formulating with shea butter can be finicky. Always melt on low heat and once melted keep on the double boiler a little longer. Once you pour into the containers and let them cool down. Put them in the fridge overnight. 

Did you know that unrefined shea butter contains more antioxidants, vitamin E &, phytosterols that helps the skin's condition?   

The best way to heat shea butter while maintaining its properties is by using a double broiler to avoid overheating. Exceeding 175 degrees F can damage the butter's nutritional qualities, so make sure you're checking the temperature often!  Tempering shea butter by using a double boiler along with rapid cooling also avoids graininess.

High grade product at a great price.

Great for balm!

I used in with my balm recipe and found it worked very well. It melts evenly and leaves skin feeling moisturized.

Shea butter

As usual the products are great and the staff is awesome from Soap & More

Good texture

I found this Shea butter a little less sweet than an organic version I have been getting. The texture is still great, but the smell is a little more dull.
