    Story Behind the Art:

    The Shea nut is harvested from the Shea tree and placed in large wooden mortars. Using manual labor, the nuts are pounded in the mortars to a granular form. The mortars are then emptied into large vats and boiled to separate the fat. The fat is then collected and cooled to form the Shea Butter. The nutty smell of the Shea nut is what comes through the natural, unrefined Shea butter. Selling Shea butter is the villages' only source of income for survival and education of the children.

  • Great L'Occitane substitute!

    I have extremely dry skin, my hands are the worst, cracked skin, often so bad it bleeds. I was spending a fortune for L'Occitane which is excellant but the small tube is gone in no time. I was looking for an alternative and somehow came across this pure shea butter. I was curious enough to purchase it but had doubts. It arrived immediately. After one application, I could not believe the power of this product. I used it on my hands and chest. Since it is a natural, pure product I said why not use it on my face, even around the eyes. It is greasy but I decided to apply it when I was watching TV and had some time and patience, to let it absorb. The scent is mild, yes a little nutty as described, not offensive. I was truly amazed what one application can do. My face and chest feel like velvet and best of all, my hands do to. Clearly I will not suffer from cracked skin any more. It comes as a big 3 pound lump, well packed in a plastic container. It looks a little strange but as far as I am concerned, it is one big bargain. I will transfer some to a smaller container and refill it as needed. As described, it is like putty which instantly becomes soft and soaks into the skin. I am not in the habit of writing long reviews but this natural, powerful product is worth the time. I sincerely recommend it. As always thanks Overstock.com for a wonderful product.

  • Shea butter

    Three pounds turns out to be a lot of shea butter. I used it on my cockatoo's feet, and she stopped picking right away and hasn't started again (and I've tried everything on her). Then I used it on my very rough hands, and it's made a huge difference. The scent is a little different, but not bad. I recommend it to anyone who paints, gardens, works with machinery, or just wants really soft skin. With this three pounds, you can share with friends and family!

  • ON THE FENCE?

    I must admit I had some reservations about ordering this product. Not anymore!! I use this at night on my hands and face. I wake up with smooth, soft, plump hands and face. Better than ANY face or hand cream I have ever used. It has never stained my sheets or nightclothes. There is a sllight smell to the product, that fades quckly. I like that it is 100% pure: no fillers, no chemicals, will last a long time, and the purchase will help poor people in Africa. A WIN-WIN situation. Get off the fence and try it!

  • Awesome!!

    Alaska winters are long, cold and dry. No lotion I have ever tried is as good as this unrefined shea butter to keep my skin looking and feeling great all the time. I have shared it with all of my friends and they are converted like me.

  • 100% GREAT

    I have used shea butter for more then 5 years, I was very happy to see it on Overstock. Normally I had to go the the local flea market or shop for it while on vacation (New York) People don't know about shea butter, all the products you see in the store that say shea butter is not the real deal. This is the real deal raw and 100%... NOTHING ADDED.......... When you put it in your hand it will get soft and is very easy to use. After using it for a month you will notice how soft your skin is. I use it all over my body face included. I love my skin and people always comment how great it looks.

  • Fantastic Skin product

    This is an excellent product at a great price, considering the miniscule amounts you get in soaps and lotions. The slight odor is short-lived and the butter is absorbed by the skin almost immediately. I use it primarily on my face, hands and elbows. My elbows were very dry before I started using Shea Butter, and now they're like satin. Three pounds is a lot, but it doesn't go bad and I share it with my daughters.
