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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill will create variations in color, size and design. Color differences may occur between the actual product and your computer screen. If buying two of the same item, slight differences will occur from piece to piece.

I use this product to soften rough skin on hands and feet. It is superior to the products that contain only small amounts of shea butter and the results speak for themselves.Read More
Those of you who got yours in a tupperware-like container, consider yourselves lucky! I got the white and it came in a slab in cellophane (with lots of crumbly bits), like a piece of tallow from the meat department. That said, you get a LOT of it! I smashed it into a cookie tin and take a crumbly bit and rub it into my skin. The smell is not offensive but not what I want to smell like ALL the time, so after I apply it, I rub on some Wen oil. My skin is definitely moisturized!Read More
Tis was one of those products that you are very happy to acquire. So natural!! I have come to realize that whatever I put on my skin is being absorbed by my skin. If I am careful about what I eat, I must then be just as careful with what I put on my skin, and thus I look for good quality and natural products. The fact that this product is natural, and that it comes from Ghana, makes me also very happy, because I realize that buying a product like this makes me a more responsible citizen of the world that we inhabit. The fact that the product is unrefined is a plus plus by me!!Read More
I was surprised when I received this. It comes in a tupperwear container! :( But inside, the quality was great. This is a solid block, easier to work with if you take a smaller amount and put it into a more portable container. I even took a small nivea tin and carry that around with me - the head of my normal activities make it easier to work with, so that the butter literally melts uppon contact with your skin. Otherwise, you need to rub it between your hands in order to apply this to your skin - which can be a little bit of a **** when it comes to applying daily after bathing. As far as how the product works, as expected, its an excellent moisturizer. I've even found that within 2 weeks, it reduced my mild to moderate psoriasis by 90% (it never made it 100% disappear). On the body, the moisture lasts all day, you can still feel the suppleness 18 hours later. I love it and will repurchase - though I did notice that the YELLOW is (1) softer and (2) seems to moisturize better. After reading that REAL unrefined shea butter will be yellow, I wonder how this is white, and if the color has anything to do with how the product works. I won't buy the white one again.Read More
1. I did not expect it to have such a smell. And it was in blocks as shown on Overstock. And the quanity was very good, I liked that. I went on line and read I was suppose to mix with an aroma type oil and whip it to bring it to commercial quality. The reason I would not recommend this product is not because its not good quality and I dont have friends or family will to use it in this "raw" form. Other than that its good shea butter/Read More
Wow, what a cool idea to sell this shea butter unrefined and in it's natural state! I slathered it all over my arms, legs and feet last night. My heels were cracking and by morning, everything looked and felt better. This stuff comes in a plastic container with a snap lid and looks very weird, but all you need is a tiny piece and it melts in your hands and spreads easily. Love it! I hate products with fillers, chemicals, etc and this fit the bill perfectly. I know it will last for a very long time and think I need to buy some more to send as gifts. How unique! Thanks for another great product overstock!Read More
