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.

Really Great!
Sampled

I just got my box last night and tried this lotion on my hands, which tend to be very dry. Just after one use I've noticed the difference. I gave this product a 4 for now because I'm not sure how well it will work with continued use. It feels great while applying, and definitely improves the texture of your skin.

Great for winter hands!

This product is great for dry winter hands! I expected it to be hard, but it was soft and spreadable. I am very happy with this!

I love the way this product not only made my skin super soft during the cold winter days but also the smell. It worked great on my dry problem areas like my cuticles!

Very hydrating
Sampled

I have very dry skin, especially in the winter under my eyes. I've tried dozens of eye products to hydrate this area but none seem to have a lasting effect. I've used a small amount of this product twice overnight underneath my eyes and woke up with it still feeling hydrated. This works better than the more expensive eye products I have tried.

Great for Hands
Sampled

My hands have been completely defeated by the cold weather this winter so I was really excited to get this sample in my box. I put this on before bed every night, and this has definitely helped with the dryness.

Wonderful Cream
Sampled

I am an avid moisturizer. Especially in this harsh winter weather. I already use a current lotion that I am happy with but LOVED this product as well. May be a contender for me to switch. Found it a bit oily so its great for PM use. love the smell and texture and found the package to be great too

Great product!
Sampled

Product smells great and moisturizers well. Was a little oily do to its natural ingredients so I used with moisturizing gloves so I could do things around the house. My hands are really dry and cleared up after using this right away!

Looks like caviar

I was surprised to see the texture of this product and was somewhat reluctant to try but glad I did. It left my skin very soft and I also like that it's organic!
