Where to Buy Pure, Unrefined Shea Butter at Discount Prices

Pure, unrefined Shea butter can be bought in its raw state online or through health or natural skin care stores. However not all Shea butter is created equal. The less the amount of refining to get the extracted butter the more natural it is. A whiter product means that all the natural impurities have been removed. An all natural product is more off white in color with a distinctive smell.

What is Pure, Unrefined Shea Butter?

When you hear the name you automatically think the name butter implies that it’s a dairy product or made from milk. The name actually comes from the fact that the Shea seeds are a butter color and a consistency like butter.  Shea was first discovered and used in Africa. It’s known for its moisturizing, soothing and healing properties.

Shea butter is great for hydrating the skin and also for treatment for skin irritations, mild burns, dry scalp and damaged hair, anti aging and wound protection and softening rough patches of skin.

Where Shea Butter is Found?

Shea butter comes in a raw, all natural form, cold pressed and also in highly refined forms. It's an ingredient in many health and beauty products we see today. You’ll find it in foot creams, hair conditioner, body lotion, shampoo, lip balm, massage oil, body scrub, bar soap and anti aging serums.

Where You Can Buy Raw Shea Butter?

You can easily find natural, unprocessed Shea butter or Shea products online or at nutrition and health food store and specialty retailers. In certain cities you can find it at African street vendors.  Again, the more processed the Shea extract is it is the less effective it will be.

How much does Shea Butter Cost?

Unrefined Shea butter in its natural form will be very inexpensive at around $5 a pound. You can then take the unrefined product and melt it down yourself. Then add olive oil and now you have an extremely affordable body cream. When you use it, you'll only need to use a very small amount so it will last you a very long time. In its natural state it's quite bland so if you prefer you can add your own scent to it.

If you prefer something more processed and don't want to melt the butter down one product that's excellent is a hand cream called L'Occitane sold by Sephora. It has coconut oils, almond and honey along with 20% Shea. In stores its $25 but you can find it on eBay for $15.00

Shea butter products range in price. A four ounce container of raw Shea can be purchased for between 10 and 15 dollars. The richness of Shea usually only requires small amounts, so its price can be very economical for average use. Many drug store products containing the ingredient are also quite inexpensive.

Raw, unrefined shea butter comes in either a heavier or lighter consistency depending on your preferences. A blended and whipped lotion or cream will be more airy and a lighter texture while an all natural, raw product will be heavier. Simply choose a level of moisturization that you need for your skin. It has a shelf life of around 2 years but if you like you can refrigerate it to keep it fresher for longer. You can buy it in a pure, unrefined shea butter in bulk and wholesale containers. In it's purest form it's natural and organic and can be used for making your lotion, soap or even on your hair. As you can see in the video below, if you have dry, brittle or frizzy hair, pure, natural shea can work for you.
