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.

I love the idea of this product. I'm happy to buy organic beauty products. This was much more oily and thinner than most shea butters. The scent was very neutral. Nothing really wrong with it, but overall it's nothing too special either.

So Creamy
Sampled

This product did wonders for my dry and cracked elbows. Just a few days after using it I could tell a difference. I also liked how it left no residue.

Great organic moisturizer
Sampled

I used this on my cuticles and dry spots on my hands before I went to bed and woke up with much softer hands and nails. This product is a little greasy and doesn't smell the greatest (like any shea butter product) so I would only use at night when sleeping. Great product and so glad to have received it in this month's Birchbox!

Awesome!

This is an excellent moisturizer. It's thick and heals even my driest skin. It's not to different from some of the other stuff I use though.

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!

Great Smell!

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!
