Shea Terra Organics Shea Nilotica East African Shea Butter (Certified Organic)

Not all shea butters are created equal. The eco-conscious folks behind Shea Terra Organics sourced this unrefined version from the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative in Uganda, which is famous for abundant rainfall that helps shea trees flourish. Local women harvest the nuts by hand before sending them to a mill, where they’re distilled for the rich moisturizer that’s great for face, body, cuticles, and hair alike. Compared to its more common West African counterpart, this East African shea butter is creamier and has a less noticeable scent, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

This product left my skin feeling moisturized. Although, It did have grainy texture when I used it on my hands.

High quality moisturizer
Sampled

This product is a thick moisturizer. It is like a mixture between Vaseline and body butter. It goes on thick and takes a while to absorb which I don't care for.

I have no complaints about this product. Now that it is winter and my skin is very dry, I apply this and my skin is instantly moisturized!

works GREAT
Sampled

This has no scent or pretty color to it, but it works great at doing what it's meant to do: MOISTURIZE! It reminded me of a mixture between a body butter and Vaseline-like product. The packaging was nice e in my opinion also.

You NEED this product!
Sampled

I keep this on my bedside table to use as a deep conditioner for my skin before I go to sleep. It works wonders overnight and keeps my elbows, hands and feet smooth and soft. The scent is natural and slightly sweet but milder than cocoa butter and can be used on all genders.

I use this for my body lotion and for my hair . this really helps to soften my hair and makes my skin smooth. i don't like the smell, it fades really fast but, i don't like the nutty smell it has.

Great for my feet after a long day in the sand

Took this with me on vacation and used it help keep my feet in shape after being in the sand and water. It was conditioning and did the job! Didn't love the smell though.

Keep it by the bedside
Sampled

I suffer from really dry cuticles, and as such have a tendency to pick at them, which is no bueno for my manicures. This shea butter is great -- I keep it by my bedside and rub it into my cuticles and nails each night before bed. It's made a huge difference in my hands, and is especially great for the winter months. This has a bit of a residue, so I would recommend for nighttime use.

Love!

This leaves my skin incredibly soft and smooth. It doesn't cause me to break out like most lotions. I love that it's all natural and safe to use on my kids.
