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.

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!

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!

The texture threw me for a loop at first... More of a sugar scrub look. However very moisturizing!

It is literally butter in a jar
Sampled

I had high expectations for this product because I am normally in love with everything shea butter. I really feel like this is literally just shea butter in a jar, and I could cook with it. It left my hands feeling greasy but hydrated. I personally do not like to oily feeling it leaves behind or the smell.

Very Greasy Product
Sampled

I tried putting this product on my hands because they get very dry. I work in a hospital and have to wash my hands frequently which dries them out. This product was very greasy, and I really disliked the scent. This product is definitely not for me. It may work better on other body parts for someone who likes the scent though.
