Description

Virgin Organic Shea Butter is derived from the nuts of karite trees grown in the savannahs of the “Gold Coast” of Africa. Karite trees, or shea trees, take between 20 and 50 years to mature and regularly live to be 200 to 300 years old – their long lifespan could partly be due to the fact that the destruction of karite trees is prohibited in many parts of Africa because it is such a valuable resource.

Due to the large population of women employed in the production of Virgin Organic Shea Butter, it is sometimes called “women’s gold”. These women have enjoyed the benefits of shea butter for many, many generations – and now you can too with our Virgin Organic Shea Butter!

    Smells great. I made a body scrub with this product, and it’s divine.

  2. Aly

    GREAT product!!!!!! VERY smooth and smells great!!!!

  3. Stephanie

    Very creamy! Absorbed nicely with less graininess than I expected. I love that it is organic too! This is as close to the nut as you can get!

  4. David

    This was awesome, great slip. Firm but not dried out. Great in my lip balm!

  5. Norah

    This Shea is the best! It’s super moisturizing right out of the container, and has that natural Shea butter smell I just love. It’s the best price I’ve ever seen for it too. I melt it down to use it in thick body scrubs.

  6. Pauline

    This is a fantastic product, a definite bonus to my products.

  7. Bernice

    Great product, great value, arrived on time – thumbs up all around

  8. Rachael

    Amazing! It was soft and silky and has been a perfect addition to my homemade products.

  9. Julia

    Perfect for creams, soaps, deodorants and practically anything your making! Love it!

  10. Kathryn

    I cannot believe the price! It’s a 1/3 of what you would find in natural shops. Great addition to my lip balms, diaper cream and more!

  11. Julie

    Ce produit est d’une excellente qualité et ce à un prix très compétitif.

  12. Nicole

    This butter is very good quality and very nourishing to the skin. But i wanted to include a warning to those that are unfamiliar with the different formats of shea butter. The unrefined shea butter has a very strong earthy aroma. It would be perfect for a masculine scented product, but it might be hard to cover if you are working on a light floral product.

  13. Nicole

    This is the real deal. No worries of it being unrefined or anything added to it. I don’t mind the smell, but my mother and friends don’t like it. Adding a bit of essential oil helps mask the nutty smell.

  14. Esther

    One of my favourites for superfatting my soaps. Creamy with an authentic light-green colour and shea-buttery scent. Really nice.

  15. Esther

    One of my favourites to superfat my soaps. Soft and creamy with an authentic, light green colour and shea-buttery scent. Really nice.

  16. Laura

    I love this shea butter – I love that saffire blue carries a virgin organic version and for such great value. Its richly moisturizing and perfect for tons of applications. The smell reminds me of smoked nuts and I do find it slightly unpleasant, but I’ve found the smell is easily masked when mixed with other fragrant ingredients. I’m very excited to try it in soaps and conditioners. I liked that it was packaged in a bag instead of it being further melted to fit in a container, but the bag was too small for the 250g I ordered. I had to work really, really hard to even get it out. A bigger bag would be easier to work with. Fantastic product!

  17. Hillary

    Nicely packaged, good quality and moist/soft, smells just like shea butter. Nice that it is organic and very good price for the amounts!

  18. Deborah

    Thanks for carry the organic shea butter at a good price!

  19. Karen

    great quality product. Nice yellow color, very smooth and melts easily. As usual, has that unrefined Shea smell which although not so pleasant,is a true mark of good quality. When made into lotion the product melted quickly, combined with other ingredients easily and turned out a smooth and rich product. Will order again.

  20. Trista

    Very natural, good quality product. Excellent website, easy to use. Efficient, immediate and accurate delivery. First time using your company, and will be using again. Very pleased with the service.

  21. esther

  22. Sandra

    Love this stuff. I use it for deodorant, sun lotion, lip balm and salve.

  23. Kim

    J’adore ce beurre… Un peu suffit pour faire un savon extra

  24. Katie

    Wonderful butter, smells great and very good quality. Not grainy at all.

  25. McKayla

    Such a soft and smooth butter, just perfect for moisturizing and nourishing skin! Excellent product and lovely scent too!

  26. Kimberley

    Good quality all natural shea butter. Great smell and feel. Works very well used straight and in my homemade creams.

  27. Shannon

    I want to say 5 stars….but I avoid extremes like that! 🙂 Loving this shea butter. Love that it’s virgin organic. Beautiful to work with. Do not like that it comes in a thin little plastic bag, however! Guess it’s cheaper for shipping, though, and I can put it in my own glass jar. A really nice, clean butter that has worked beautifully in our recipes.

  28. Cath

    This Shea Butter is great. Made great lotions and soap with it. Saffire Blue is a great company.

  29. Theresa

    The best value for bulk organic shea butter! Nice and creamy – not dry.

  30. Andrea

    I have just purchased this shea butter for the second time. I use it in salves, cp soap, and just straight on my skin in very dry areas – I have sensitive skin and have used other oils, but this is the best for me. It is fantastic. I don’t know what the “regular” butter is like, but this one does have a certain aroma to it. It isn’t offensive and I don’t mind it, but I can still pick it up in my lavender salve. Will be purchasing more when this batch runs out.

  31. Aiat

    I absolutely love the subtle natural scent this butter has. I used this in my batch of soap, and plan on using it for my cream for sure! 5/5 stars for the butter itself. I took one star away from the review as a whole because I would have preferred a jar or other packaging for it. It comes in a bag. Thank you SB! 🙂

  32. Aiat

    I had to write another review after trying this by itself as a deep moisturising treatment on my face at night, and I LOVE it! This review is a bit different than others but worth reading. I have very oily skin, acne, acne scaring, white heads, and more of the yucky stuff and this doesn’t break me out! Its hard to believe a butter would not break you out or clog your pores. This would be amazing for those with wrinkles too, since its SO SO SO moisturising. I can’t rave enough about this! I just take a dime sized amount and rub it in my palm until its smooth enough to massage into my face and neck before bed. A must try!

  33. Shannon

    Love this shea butter. Perfect price. Just wish it came in a container of some sort.

  34. Margaret

    Love this Shea Butter and what a wonderful price. Made a great whipped body lotion and at this price I can afford to give more away to some to my friends. Great shipping too.

  35. Lisa

    Love, love this Shea Butter! This is the only kind that doesn’t get gritty after heating it! It is smooth and has a light scent. I will not buy this stuff anywhere else!

  36. Chelsey

    I love this shea. Its a fantastic product and is the second time I\’ve purchased it. Last time it came in a jar. This time its thrown in a bag and is a giant mess. This would have 5 stars if the packaging wasn\’t so ridiculous. My beeswax pellets came in a jar… those would have made more sense to be in a bag like they used to be. It\’s actually enough for me to start looking for another source for my hard lotion supplies.

  37. Kristen

    Best shea butter I’ve found! (And amazing price) Not too strong of a nutty smell and makes my skin feel wonderful! I make a million products with it! Love love love !!
    Please keep selling this amazing stuff!

  38. Kimberlie

    I used it to make my own sunscreen, and it seems to have worked very well. Great price. Will definetly buy this again.
