Virgin Shea Butter is the amazing beauty secret African women have held for thousands of years – and finally, the secret is out for the rest of the world!

Virgin Shea Butter contains vitamins A, D, E, and F and is recognized for its natural moisturizing and healing capabilities. It makes a great moisturizer due to its high fatty acid content, which help to aid in retaining moisture and skin elasticity.

Hailed for its considerable health and beauty benefits, Virgin Shea Butter has been used as a natural medicinal remedy to help heal acne, sores, burns, dandruff, as tattoo aftercare, and to relieve itching associated with psoriasis. It can also be used to soften and diminish scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles, and offers protection from UV rays.

Virgin Shea Butter is commonly added to various cosmetic and beauty products, but the results aren’t nearly quite as effective as going straight to the source with 100% pure unrefined Shea Butter!  For great tips on how to use Shea Butter in your hair care routine, see Saffire Blue’s Best Tips for Using Shea Butter for Natural Hair Care

Unrefined Shea Butter is also known as Virgin or Grade A Shea Butter, the best available! This is because Virgin, Unrefined Shea Butter boasts the highest nutrient content – the refining process can sometimes destroy or decrease the amount of natural vitamins present, specifically vitamins A and E.

Virgin Shea Butter is solid at room temperature but easily and smoothly melts into the skin at body temperature. It sometimes carries a smoky, nutty scent attributed to the roasting of Shea nuts during preparation of the butter – don’t worry, this aroma soon dissipates after application!

Treat yourself and discover the many natural benefits of Virgin Shea Butter!

Shea Butter must be stored in cool conditions and in airtight containers to avoid the butter becoming rancid.

  • Store in a cool area, below 10 degrees C (50 degrees F)
  • Store in a dark area, away from direct sunlight
  • Do not overheat when melting and avoid repeat melting
  • May be refrigerated to extend shelf life

INCI: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)

  1. Alex

    Love it! I find this shea butter easier to work with than the stuff from other suppliers, seems much easier to scoop out of the jar and much less messy.

  2. Isabelle

    the only thing I did not like of this product is the contenant it was in. I would normaly use a bigier opening to facilate the way to the product

  3. Peggy

    I have used this product in a few batches of hot process soap and I think it is wonderful. It is easy to work with and this shea butter, combined with the other oils I use make a wonderful, softening bar of soap. I have also used it alone on the very dry parts of my feet and it works great. It melts nicely and left my skin feeling very soft. The price is also excellent. I will continue to use this product.

  4. kelly

    Loved how this product came in its own sealed container (not a bag)and it worked beautifully in my recipe!
    Also love how fast product arrived to my home 🙂

  5. Jocelyne

    After checking a couple of different places to buy my soap supplies I found SAFFIRE BLUE inc. to have the best price!!

  6. Sandra

    Just used the Shea butter for lip balm and it worked great! Very happy with the product and the price.

  7. Cathy

    We were very happy with this butter. It worked well in our soap and we would definitely purchase again from Saffire Blue.

  8. Jaclyn

    Better than I expected! Great value and size. Definitely going to buy again.

  9. Bernice

    I love this product. It’s smooth and wonderful for my hair products.

  10. Rhonda

    This is the best shea butter I’ve used. Rich, with a light fragrance.

  11. Sacha

    Great price for shea butter, used it in cold process soaps and it turns out great.

  12. Robyn

    I was surprised by the odour – it’s not a sensual smell by a long shot! This is the first shea butter I’ve worked with so I can’t compare to others, but it worked very nicely in a skin balm. I learned more about shea butter from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7ktkxQuCjI and you can get a real sense of the process involved when using this virgin butter.

  13. Alicia

    Really like the Shea butter I purchased, but I wish it would come in better packaging.

  14. matthew

    love your shea butter in lotions excellent product

  15. Cindy

    This is the first time i purchase Shea butter to make my products- i used it in a lotion i made with a combination of coconut oil, cocoa butter and vitamin E with the jasmine-mandarine scent..its heavenily and i am in love with shea butter 🙂 will order again!

  16. Nina

    Love, love, love this stuff! Light smelling and so moisturizing in soap.

  17. Terry

    Great value for money, you can’t go too far wrong with using Shea butter in personal care products. So far I have only used this particular product in a lotion and a balm, have not tried in CP soap as yet. It is a little oilier than refined Shea Butter but this can be balanced out by combining it with a lighter oil in lotions.

  18. Karly

    I had never used shea butter that was not deodorized. The smell was surprising – kind of nutty & earthy. It works well in my lotions and soap though.

  19. Jamie

    I have ordered 1kg of this Shea butter three times in the past three months. I use it for almost EVERYTHING! It’s so amazing and easy to incorporate into my recipes. Will definitely continue to buy. 🙂

  20. Darlene

    best price, great packaging, shipping was a little slower than normal but was fully warned that it was going to be.

  21. Jaclyn

    Excellent for using in my Body Bars. Melts easily and non-grainy.

  22. Danielle

    Everyone loves this shea butter, its natural smell, does not need any EO help, anyone looking for earthy nut smell, this is great

  23. Darlene

    it smells so nice, rich and creamy, excellant packaging,best price around.

  24. Sarah

    Good price and high quality, I love adding 5% of Shea Butter to my CP Soaps, because you can tell from the creaminess and smoothness

  25. Jennifer

    This is just awesome! Texture is perfect. So soft and so easy to work with. Perfect in so many of my bodycare products! Love that the 4L is now packaged in a tub.

  26. Elizabeth

    Smells great and feels great 🙂 Wonderful in my CP soaps.

  27. Olga

    so awesome ! just the box is a little hard for open.

  28. James

    Great pricing! I’ve been using this shea butter in a lot of different products and it is great! Melts and blends beautifully with other butters and oils. Very soft and moisturizing for the skin. Does little miracle on very dry skin! Does have some occasional small impurity in it, but it shows it is really natural and virgin.

  29. Ashley

    A great quality product I’ve used in many handmade bath and body products!

  30. jennifer

    A good value! I use it for my stretch marks looking forward for the results…

  31. Cindy

    J’adore!Au premier contact mes mains sont devenues ultra-douces.J’en ai même eu des remarques de la part de mon conjoint haha.Je l’ajoute partout ou je peux.

  32. Alicia

    I love it! It’s so creamy and works so well in my lotion bars. It has a slightly wood/smoky smell but it’s not overpowering at all and when blended with other butters or oils I don’t notice it. I will definitely be purchasing this again!

  33. Kimberly

    Absolutely love this product. Makes the best body butter and is such a great price.

  37. Jillian

    Recently purchased this product. I love the smell. I used it in a cp soap so far so good.

  39. Melissa

    I use Shea butter in all my CP soaps, my homemade deodorant, lotion sticks and sun screen stick. Best price I have found and great quality.

  49. Kyla

    This was a very good rich butter. I made a lotion with it that was amazingly moisturizing.

  50. Kloe

    Very satisfied. I had never purchased or worked with shea butter before, so I can’t judge just how good the quality of this one is, but I am very satisfied with it. The smell is not overpowering nor does it feels bleached out, it’s very hydrating and the plastic packaging is kept to a minimum. I will keep on buying it from here. Thank you!

  51. Cara

    Great Value. Love the quality. I’m really excited to start using different butters and oils in my soap making

  52. Laurence

    I was looking for a nice and authentic shea butter. I missed the one my brother brought back from Africa. Well, this butter is exactly the SAME and I’m so truly happy that I found this. The nutty smell of this butter drives me crazy! I WILL buy this product, again and again. I’m a big fan of natural shea butter _3

  53. Svetlana

    Great product! Smooth and creamy, not grainy. Melts right in. Thank you for a great product quality and price!

  60. Lisa

    my last order was the first time that I had tried this shea butter, and I love it! This made the exfoliating scrub pucks that I made so smooth an silky feeling! I will most definitely be getting this again.

  61. Katharina

    I used this shea butter to make home made lip balm and it was perfect. Keeps your libs soft and moisturized. I would definitely recommend this product

  62. Darlene

    I am happy with my Refined Shea Butter from Saffire Blue. It is bagged in nice big hunks. Love to be able to see what is in the bag. I was completely out of it, so pleased to have this big bag ready to go. It was sealed tightly too. That is always a great thing when shipping. Beautiful for my future CP Soap creations.

  63. Jessica

    Smooth and elegant feeling even before making into lotion. One of my favorite buys so far. It is a must to keep on hand to change up my recipies. Five stars isnt enough!

  64. kelly

    Quality product for my soaps, I like the large plastic container it comes in, it has a large opening for easy access to the product, will definitely purchase more Shea butter from this company

  65. kelly

    Very good quality product for my soaps. The price is great. The container it comes in has a wide mouth for easy access to the product, many do not. Will definetly purchase this product again

  66. Jennifer

    My first time buying pure Shea butter. It has the lovely Shea smell, thick, creamy. It is easy to melt and combine with other oils and essential oils.

  67. Susie

    Best price of shea butter I’ve found anywhere! Amazing in body butter

  68. Aly

    Product is GREAT – however, we ordered the 25kg (which we will NEVER do again), and it came packaged as one HUGE chunk, in a plastic bag. We expected it to come packaged in a drum or container so that we could store it hygienically. When we contacted the company regarding this they replied that this is how they purchase it.
    We will only be purchasing in smaller sizes from now on- the time it takes to chip away at the HUGE piece of shea to use in our products isn’t worth the savings in purchasing in bulk!!!

  69. ANA

    Love this Shea butter.. it was perfect in my CP soap recipe .. soft and moist on the skin .. recommend this butter for sure
