Unrefined is finer when it comes to your skin. Packed with pure unrefined shea butter known for its hydrating, anti-aging, healing, and soothing properties, Out of Africa’s Pure Unrefined Shea Butter is the ultimate must-have for healthy, beautiful skin.

All Shea Butter Is Not Created Equal!
Don't be fooled, "refined" is not better! Refining shea butter is usually done by bleaching and deodorizing it; neutralizing it with lye; and over-heating it to very high temperatures.

If you're a soap handcrafter, or use a lot of shea butter, you know that premium quality equals premium results.

  • Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A, E and F along with healthy fatty acids and valuable phytonutrients
  • Helps protect from premature aging; softens fine lines and wrinkles
  • Perfect for face, lips, elbows, heels or anywhere skin needs extra hydration
  • Non-comedogenic and great for all skin types
  • Helps prevent and reduce stretch marks and scars
  • Healing properties that address many conditions including dry and sensitive skin, cracked skin, sunburn, chapped lips, cuticles, psoriasis and eczema
  • No parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, phthalates or artificial coloring
  • Cruelty-free and eco-friendly
  • Available at natural products stores nationwide.

Excellent moisturiser
Amazing as a moisturiser, works wonders in winter. The Shea butter is in a raw paste, which needs to be rubbed between the palms before spreading.
Once applied the skin does become a bit oily and sticky but eventually absorbs into the skin leaving it feeling silk smooth.

Good Stuff!
This shea butter is of very good quality, not like the stuff that is sold for much cheaper on Amazon
(white cheap-looking plastic container with a yellow label on top), which is not organic and also has the wrong texture.
I think it was a good idea to pay more and get a higher quality product.

Large size, Great value
I decided to try this as it is more economical than the one I usually buy.
It is a very good product at the best price I have seen for Shea butter when it is on sale.

Best Shea Butter I've Tried!
I really find this Shea Butter to be the best overall. They all are wonderful, but this stuff is easy to work with, and doesn't coat my skin in a thick yellow goo.


6/27/2013
From Washington

The best shea I have ever had! I have tried several other brands of shea, but this one is the best. It is cream colored, very smooth, and has a beautiful vanilla smell.
It is very rich, but absorbs beautifully and keeps my hands and face moisturized for hours. I am very grateful for this product.

Overall good value
I am a huge fan of L'Occitane Shea butter but it is not in my budget right now. I was hoping to find a good substitute and this product does the job.
It does have a nutty smell and feels slightly different but overall I am pleased with the product and the price!

This is a great product. Lasts for a long time and does the trick. My feet and hands are smooth as silk!

Works great
Used shea butter to make lotion bars and chapstick and it was nice and creamy, no odor, light in color.
I really like it - and at a good price.

Greasy but worth it! This moisturizer is SUPER greasy when you put it on but once it soaks in your skin feels amazing.
I would recommend applying before bed so it can soak in overnight.

From Anonymous Female

This product is really good. The product smells good, feels good, and really smooths the skin. My skin really needs a little extra boost during the dry winter months.
This is my first winter using it and my skin feels great.

From Anonymous Female

I purchased this shea butter to mix with my oils to put on my skin and in my hair.
I also use Out of Africa's black bar soap in conjunction with my shea butter mix and my skin has never been so soft,
well it has but not this soft! And as for my hair I have noticed its become more healthier, shinier, and more manageable.

From Drexel, MO

I would buy this product again
I use this product for dry skin. It doesn't take much and it makes my skin feel soft.

From Texas

Finally!!!
I LOVE this! I have very dry cracked elbows. I'm 34 and they are getting worst with age. My brother's elbows are the same way so I think it's hereditary.
I've tried so many products and everything else only worked for an hour at the most.
This stuff keeps my elbows mousiterized all day. I wish I would have found it sooner.


2/28/2013
From Anonymous Female

Would purchase again
I have used unrefined shea butter before and I am impressed with this product as it is just like what I had before.
It softens the skin and keeps it hydrated. It smells similar to cocoa butter, if you are familiar with that smell.
It is a good price for the container size. This will probably last me at least 6 months.


2/21/2013
From Hartford, CT

Very good stuff
I tend to get eczema in the winter and this stuff really seems to help.
It is hard to work with as you need to rub it in hard or warm it up first, but it works very well on your skin.
It definitely works better for me than other moisturizers and I'd rather use this than lots of cortisone.


2/20/2013
From Anonymous Female

Love
It's obvious this is a raw product and quality. It is solid until "warmed" in hands and then it's more typical lotion-like and spreadable.
Shea butter is wonderful and this product is 100% shea skin.
It definitely works better for me than other moisturizers and I'd rather use this than lots of cortisone.

1/23/2013
From Southern California

Want to look young longer?
I met this beautiful model at a holiday get together last year. I don't want to mention her name because
I haven't asked her permission but she is gorgeous! To make a long story short, I asked her what she uses on her radiant skin and she told me that she only uses unrefined pure Shea butter.
So I decided to try ....best beauty move I've EVER made. I warm the butter in my hands or I place it next to the heater to warm the butter and after its warm
I proceed to slather my entire body and some times my hair when my hairs on the dry side.
Well after a couple of weeks my over 50 year old skin looks like 40s. This proves you don't have to accept aging skin and expensive creams that don't deliver.
By the way.....this butter penetrates great. You will LOVE this product as your go to beauty answer.


1/21/2013
From Southern Michigan

Really nice!
This Shea butter is a great heavy moisturizer for my winter weary skin. I probably won't order the one with the vanilla in it again, just personal preference, but I love the product regardless (the vanilla scent is ok, I just wanted the plain, but it was sold out).
A little goes a long way also..it melts with the heat of your hand, so makes for easy application. Will buy again, just the plain version.

Long time user
I started using Raw Shea Butter several years ago. I enjoy the feeling of moisture and softness it gives to my ageing skin.
A jar seems to last a very long time making it a very economical alternative to commercial products. As a man I like the lack of fragrance.

Buying again
I use this on my baby (mixed ) as he has dry skin, ever since using this it has gone so much softer.
I'm African so i have dry skin too so started to use on me and it absorbs really well and a little really does go a long way!!
I haven't finished it yet but, wanted some more so i order the vanilla version as the other one wasn't available.
Love that its raw and there is no real smell to it. Can be used on your hair to soften too. Must buy and cheapest price by far.

In LOVE.
Shea butter is amazing in general, but Out of Africa's shea butter is AMAZING in caps. I love how smooth it is.
Just give a quick rub in between the palms and apply it-- great for dry skin.
I also put it on the ends of my hair to condition it. Awesome.
Totally pure, completely unrefined-- the only way to go with shea butter.

From California

Awesome product!
Very thick and rich. I use it as a hand cream, as I wash my hands a lot and they are very dry. This leaves them feeling amazing and it's not too oily, it absorbs well into the skin (better than coconut oil and cocoa butter,
which I was using before, but not better than your typical hand lotions). Don't love the smell, but it's nice enough and not too strong. You only need a little, so the pot will last a long time.
w It also makes a good lip butter and cracked heel treatment.


11/19/2012

Fantastic
use this for everything, and it works for everything! For my lips before I go to bed, for my hands, for dry feet and elbows,
I use it when I work outeside in the cold wintermonths and it stops my face and hands for craking and drying out! Great product!

ACNE healer!
I have been struggling with Acne since my teen years. I have tried all of the pharmaceuticals and nothing.
So a friend of mine told me to go natural. Use African Black Soap and follow with 100% natural Shea butter every morning and night.
I did this and my skin looks the best it has in YEARS! It is great and such a confidence restorer!

Yay
This is currently the only moisturizer I'm using. I let it soak in while I do my hair and then I blot off the excess when it's time to do my makeup.

Before this, I bought a different product on this site that claimed to be organic. It might have been organic, but it was also definitely refined.
The other product worked okay, but I decided to purchase this one instead b/c I wanted all the benefits of a truly "raw" shea butter.

Does NOT break me out (rashes or acne). Makes my skin soft as a baby's butt. Seems very calming and healing too.
I stopped using everything else I was using (except a cleanser and the collagen ampules at night) and I only use this. It's nice to be using something with just one natural ingredient.
My skin seems to be thanking me.

A little diff to apply - then again, it's 100% shea butter
It's in a solid form - so you gotta warm rub it a bit to get it softer to apply on your body.

Love it!
It starts off as a "wax", but just rub a dab between the palm of your hands and it becomes sort of an oil.
I use it everywhere my body needs moisture, even my hair. Has no perfumes or flowery scent, so you have to get used to it's natural scent.
You will switch to this cream in no time!

Great product, great price
I looked around for shea butter, and most were in tiny 2-ounce tins or contained irritating oils.
This was a good size and a quarter of the price. It's great for cuticles, eczema, dry heels, dry elbows, and irritated skin.
Steriod creams and ointments are often necessary, but using this has reduced my use of them.

Love This
This is the first time trying this & I am glad did! It is all natural & pure raw Shea. I love it all over but it really works Great after I shave. Makes my legs so silky & soft.
It is great for anyone who just wants their skin to not look so dry or ashy. A big WINNER for me!!!

Alexandria, VA

Great product, creamy and smooth
This product is amazing! It comes in an abundant round jar and offers alot of product for the value compared to equivalent products of high end competitors.
The butter is actually very hard, but easily scrapes out (I use the back of my nails) and melts in between your hands for a smooth luxurious application.
I use it for dry skin and to prevent pregnancy stretchmarks.
I would recommend this product for anyone that is looking for a well-priced, natural shea butter product.

I had high hopes for this shea butter and it delivered. This organic unrefined shea butter feels so luxurious! I actually have a tub of this sitting next to my tub of $200 cream from the department store
and I'm totally sold on this. The smell is very mild and it's super moisturizing. I have hormonal acne prone skin due to my pregnancy and this thing really helps. A little really goes a long way. It does take a bit
more time than the average moisturizer but once it sinks in, it's heavenly. I'm hooked!

This is a rescue for dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin like mine. Many expensive moisturisers and body butters contain shea butter on top of many other ingredients including fragrances and preservatives that I’d prefer to skip. Three years ago, I read about the benefits of using raw unrefined shea butter as a face and body moisturizer — effective and low cost. It can also be used on chapped lips, dry nail cuticles and dry hair ends. Super multi-purpose. I’ve tried 4 brands of shea butter and Out of Africa is my current favourite. It’s organic, smooth, well packaged to retain freshness, and very affordable — only about SGD2.70/oz!

This product product leaves a lasting smoothness on your skin. The smell is quite a nutty smell. Love this product.
Shea butter is a wonderfull soothing and creamy feel on your skin much longer than other skin creams I've used. It stays on my hands even though I wash my hands a lot.
My cuticles and nails stay soft and my nails don't break like they used to. After I finish applying shea butter to my skin I then run my hands through my hair.
It tames down any fly-away hair but it does not leave an oil film on my hair. I can go without shampooing my hair for 5 0r 6 days. Loooooooooooove it !!!!

Nice value for a quality product
I bought this for my 3 year old daughter who is suffering from eczema. It is an effective replenisher!


3/29/2012
Windham, New Hampshire

I am thrilled with the immediate results of this product!
I have a lot of "age spots" on the back of my hands from many years of sunbathing, in addition to chapped skin from the cold New England weather.
I apply the Shea Butter at bedtime and the age spots have faded after just a week.!! The chapped skin is now smooth and soft!! Also, our hobby for the past 25 years has been Choreographed Ballroom Dancing.
Needless to say, my feet have taken a beating. I have been rubbing them with the Shea Butter and wearing special bedsocks, and the dry skin on my heels and toes is also disappearing!
I even rub it on my knees and legs.

My husband always gets painful cracks on the tips of his fingers during the winter months, so he has been using the Shea Butter and the cracks are healing!
We highly recommend this product to anyone suffering with dry, cracked skin. It works better than any healing lotion or petroleum jelly we have tried.

Asheville, North Carolina

This is pure Shea butter. It's very thick and you'll have to warm it up by rubbing it between your hands, but then it is smooth and creamy. I use it on my heels and elbows and love how it works. It doesn't have added scent or other oils, which I kind of miss, but it is an incredible value for high quality shea.

This is nature's miracle cure for dry skin. Anyone who suffers from eczema or psoriasis should be using this as an everyday moisturizer. This particular brand of shea butter is unrefined so you will get the full therapeutic benefits when applied to your skin. And its from a fair-trade organization so you don't have to worry about unfair labor practices levied on the wonderful women in Africa who harvest the shea nuts to create this divine butter.

I have had Eczema for over 20 years and I have consulted with many Dermatologist over the years and various prescription lotions prescribed. I would get rashes on my hands, face and legs and just about given up on finding anything that would show any results in helping control the eczema outbreaks. I started using the Out of Africa Raw Shea Butter one day and I noticed a remarkable difference in the way my skin (eczema rash) redness/dryness appearance became less and less noticeable after a few days! The fact that this product is all natural resonates even more to me, as I can apply it , as needed, when I need to without a prescription AND it moisturizes as well! I have already recommended this to my brother, who has Eczema.. I really, really love this!!!!  Thank you!!!!!!

I love this Shea Butter. Melts in your hands very well, when rubbing them together. I use it at night on my face, neck, and upper chest area. Helps my hands also. Would reorder this for sure, very happy with it.

Lorain, OH

I purchased this product to moisturize my skin during my pregnancy. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily the Shea melted in my hands. I like that I don't have to put it in the microwave. I don't see an immediate difference in the appearance of my stretch marks but I plan to monitor them for the duration of the pregnancy and beyond. The smell may be intense for some, it's definitely an earthy aroma. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase.
Mixing it with essential oils like lavender or vanilla will probably help with the smell and I may try this. I also use a small amount on my hair to seal in moisture and it does a great job at this.

Little Rock, AK


It is very softening and I love the way the skin on my face and body looks after using it. I also sometimes mix it with a tiny amount of coconut oil. Although because of the smell, I am only using it on my face and using coconut oil on my body. I stopped using my usual face cream and use this instead.

It doesn't have a USDA organic stamp, but I don't know the rules about that stuff. Either way, it works great as is, or can be melted easily to add to homemade products.

I think I've fallen in love with this shea butter, I use it every day now on my entire body, including my face and it feels really good. I've also been using it on eczema-like itchy/irritated skin and it seems to really nourish and even heal those irritated and dry spots, and soften my entire skin. The shea butter is a bit sticky, different from oil and nothing like coconut oil in it's cooled form. You have to rub it well either in your hands before applying it on the skin, or rub well on the skin for the shea butter to get softer and be absorbed by the skin. I chose this one because it's shea butter in it's pure form instead of a cream based on tiny amounts of shea butter, of which there are many (that also bear the name 'shea butter'!). I definitely recommend trying this product.


9/17/2011
Philadelphia, PA

A little does go a long way. Scoop out a small amount and warm it up in the palm of your hand using your index finger. I use this on my elbows every morning and night; they are so soft! I use mineral Makeup and mix a small amount of the shea butter with BE Bisque to use as an undereye concealer. My undereye area stays hydrated all day long. I've tried a lot of (pure) shea butter brands, but this is my favorite.

I have tried 8 different shea butter suppliers; this one is the very, very best. It's soft, pliable and makes my skin firm and moisturized. I read your reviews on this item, but this has been my experience with Out of Africa Shea.


7/24/2011
APO AE

I love Shea Butter and use it daily to moistureize my skin after showering. The texture of this one was exceptionally difficult to remove from the jar. Once I removed it (poking really hard), small chunks did not rub in. They were all over the place. The scent was also unpleasing. I would only apply it at night prior to going to bed. On the other hand, it did moisturize my skin, but the grit and the longer time to apply were not worth it in the end.

6/16/2011

I use this as a moisturizer, in my hair, and on my son's sensitive skin. It's important to melt it between your palms first, otherwise it feels grainy. I will try it on my facial skin in winter, when it needs extra moisture, I think it will be great as a night cream. Can recommend it!
