4.0 out of 5 stars Yum! 11 Sep 2011
This product is thick, rich and pure. It is the perfect solution for dry, sensitive skin. I used it during a beach holiday to prevent over-drying and as an aftersun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chocolately, nutty, silky skin food. 28 May 2013
Having fallen in love with Lush's "King of skin" I decided that I would make up a batch of my own as I could see King of skin becoming an expensive habit... King of skin contains a fair amount of cocoa and shea butters so these were sourced on Amazon.

For a total of 30 I managed to grab all of the raw ingredients (I already had a fair few of the required essential oils) one of which was this good sized pot of raw organic Shea butter from Naissance on Amazon. I had bought from the company before when replacing the organic base oils and essentials so already knew that they sold decent quality products.

I have used Shea before and loved it so I bought a large 1kg tub knowing that I could find a hundred uses for it and still want to buy more. A lot of products contain Shea, especially skin products but it is usually in negligible amounts. I prefer the real thing in its raw creamy state.

SHEA:

Shea butter is a very pale yellow fatty substance which is extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). It is widely used in the cosmetics industry as a moisturiser and salve. It is also edible and has a sweet taste.

The extraction of Shea is a laborious process which begins with the outer pulp being removed from the nut. In Africa this is generally a very jovial and social activity and traditionally performed by women. The nut shells are cracked open using rocks and then the inner nut is crushed. The nut is then roasted in massive pots over open fires which is another laborious part of the process due to the fact that the shea needs to be constantly stirred to avoid burning and spoiling. This is hard work but this process contributes to the unique scent that shea possesses. This process has stayed the same for hundreds of years.

1.0 out of 5 stars rancid smelling butter :( 10 Oct 2012
I was looking forward to using this butter as my son was diagnosed with eczema. I was concerned about opening the container as previous reviews state it is very hard to open. I was pleasantly surprised - it was so easy to open. My disappointment came once I opened the bucket - the rancid smell hit my nose. I contacted the company, inquiring about the lack of expiry date. The response I got was not satisfactory - the stock does not stay long on their shelves so there is no need to put expiry date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I spent so much money on a rancid butter :( now I bought it somewhere else and the benefits of shea butter are amazing not only for my son's skin but for mine too!! baby soft skin all around! in brief - do buy shea butter but not from this seller!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic value! 25 Jan 2014
By Wilow
Verified Purchase
This is the third time i have ordered this product from this company, I love this product! And the delivery was fast. This shea butter is pure and sent free so great to use on on skin that is sensitive. I use it as a base to make a moisturiser for myself and my on son. He use to have eczema quite badly, but I mixed this with some oils and aroma oils and it has totally cleared up! I have afro hair and this product is great as a moisture sealant, especially in the winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars So versatile & great value for money 19 Sep 2013
The shea butter was delivered very quickly and is great value for money as it's so versatile. I find it great for moisturising dry skin problem areas, eye areas, lips, hands, feet, face (if applied sparingly), stretch marks, hair and my sons ezcema. It comes in solid blocks so I melt tiny bits in my hands before use. It has so many great uses that I will definately be purchasing the 1kg tub next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have never gone back 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
My daughter, about 3 months at the time came up in patches of ezcema. Her skin being so new I wanted something natural, and olive oil was not doing the job.

After 2weeks of using this product the patches were gone. You would have never known she had ezcema, no scarring, nothing.

She is now almost 13 months. I now use this product and mix it with olive oil and coconut oil, it is gorgeous. I use it on her body and her hair. Would be lost without this product :)
