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.

Shea butter

Very hydrating, but it doesn't sink in at all. Very greasy feeling. The smell is not very appealing either, though my dog is crazy about it.

Excellent

This is great, I use it on my hands and face at night. It is oily but not gross. Not overpowering on the smell and it is a solid in the jar but melts when I touch it.

Five star product!
Purchased

I first came across this as a sample in my Birchbox but, as soon as I tried it, I knew I had to purchase a full size sample. During winter, my hands usually get super dry but, as soon as I put this on, my hands were noticeable softer and so, so soft; highly recommended product.

A winter life saver!
Purchased

This product has been so valuable to me as someone who works in a restaurant environment and constantly has to wash their hands. At first glance I thought it might be too shiny, and too sticky, but it is neither. It goes on smooth and brings back to life any area you put it on, from your hands to your elbows, to your overly nose blowing dry skin. It is so pure you do not feel bad for over indulging.

Amazing Shea butter!

I adore this Shea butter. It moisturizes so well and makes such a difference! I can't go a day without using it. A little goes along way though so keep that in mind.

Not my favorite

Too thick and kind of sticky, I won't be buying this one. The smell is also a turnoff, like burnt wax?

Great moisturizer for Hands!

Love this stuff! Quickly absorbs into hands and leaves a yummy light scent. I use this at work and it is perfect because it does not leave those gross greasy marks on my paperwork. Such a relief to my dry hands that I am constantly washing during the winter season. I swear you can feel it working on your hands... I know my hands are thanking me!
