Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

With a botanical name of Butyrospermum Parkii, Shea butter is also known as karite in Senegal. It is essentially a fat that is extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree, found in the tropics of Africa.

What are common uses for shea butter?

Shea butter can be used on its own, but can also be easily mixed with other products. It is often used in skin care products such as soaps and moisturisers.
In its organic and unrefined form, Shea butter is known to be high in Vitamins A, E and F. This makes it very good for skincare, as it can help promote good skin balance and makes skin look healthy.
For centuries, shea butter has been used to keep skin and hair in good condition and is particularly useful for applying to sun damaged skin or skin that is dehydrated, as it helps with skin elasticity. It can be applied directly onto stretch marks and skin blemishes to reduce the visibility of these marks.

    Absolutely love this Shea butter. Added to my insect repellent lotion bar – smooths in so well and makes my children’s skin do soft when we use our insect repellant

    I made some whipped body butter using this and it is amazing! I was pleasantly surprised that it isn’t a yellow colour more slightly off white. It has help drastically with my daughters eczema! I really like the smell also! It is not over powering and nice and subtle.

  3. (verified owner)

    This shea butter is one of my regular orders as the product is beautiful, skin nourishing and a very versatile product

  4. (verified owner)

    I have spent hundreds of not thousands on creams, serums, lotions, essence, ampule and nothing worked like this shea butter!
    My skin has been severely damaged by eczema but this product is my saviour. It is now hydrated, nourished and plump. I no longer have the rough, bumpy skin.

    This product works the best on eczema. My son was suffering from severe eczema and it is unrefined Shea butter can only fight against my son’s skin.

  6. (verified owner)

    This shea butter was a saviour when my microdermabrasion facial dried my skin out. Given I couldn’t use anything activating on my skin whilst it was recovering, I mixed this butter with some jojoba oil (massaged it on the palm of my hand), and with this oily serum I put it on my whole face. It completely quenched and kept my face supple. After a week, my dry skin had flaked away, but I’m sure this shea butter assisted in keeping moisture in my skin

    Love this! It’s not too oily and very easy to work with. Great quality and excellent customer service- I forgot to order something and you were able to add it on and adjust my invoice swiftly. Thank you. Look forward to trying new recipes with your ingredients 🙂

    Lovely nutty-creamy smell and beautiful colour! This Shea butter is silky and luscious when whipped up into a body butter. I’ve also used with some bees wax and oils to make a thicker former barrier cream for winter. Melts into your skin and is just devine!

  11. Loving the price and quality of product. I add it to my balms to protect and nourish the skin. Great smell too.

    Have been using this to make shaving cream for my hubby for years and he absolutely love it .

  13. (verified owner)

    Excellent , so pure and easy to use. Having the most super sensitve skin I was able to use on my eye area also. Is wonderful for moisturising I have noticed a huge difference. Will sure buy again.

  14. (verified owner)

  15. (verified owner)

    Love the Shea butter. Use it to make my body butter and my friends keep wanting more.

  16. (verified owner)

    It was the real deal. I have tried buying some shea butter off eBay and it was shit. This is pure and my skin already feels better. I will be using this so make so many things; face masks, body butters, soaps, lotion bars, creams. The possibilities for this are endless. Will be buying more soon. The colour is also very good. When I picked it up the guy was very thorough. He counted how many items I had 3 times to double check it was correct. I know any order I get will only have the slightest possibility of being wrong which is great. The company also cares a lot about their customers.

  17. seriously, who doesn’t love shea butter? I purchased this to use in lotions and sunscreens I make. Smells divine and is fantastic for the skin.

    If you have dry cracked feet, put it on once at night for least a months and a half you will have a smooth looking healthy feet back!! Amazing for my baby, creating a barrier for her skin. This is some wonderful moisturiser for the whole family! Recommend for anyone who is looking for a good quality moisturiser that actually works

  19. (verified owner)

    I’m getting totally addicted to making my own products and absolutely love what shea butter adds to the finished product. Amazing product from an amazing company, definitely 5 stars.

  20. (verified owner)

    I was hesitant to purchase this product online but n-essentials made the process easy and trustworthy. The quality of this Shea butter is exceptional; if you are contemplating moving into the wonderful world of Shea butter you won’t regret it.
    My skin has never been move soft and even in tone.
    It is raw and lumpy but that proves purity that is often lost when a product is refined.
    Just mash and whip with a fork, I add a few drops of rosehip oil.
    It is super economical and has a long shelf life.
    Thank you N-Essentials

  21. Beautiful Shea Butter. Very happy with quality. Makes perfect body butter. Thanks!

  22. Cant wait to try shea butter amazing comments thankyou

  23. (verified owner)

    The price was the first thing that hooked me. N-Essentials seem to provide quality for a good price. I use this shea butter in my hand and body balms, and it is great. I have even developed a scented balm that complements the beautiful natural fragrance of the butter. Coming in a bag enables you to break the larger pieces up in the bag, ensuring you do not have to handle the butter and have it melt in your hands.

  24. Absolutely beautiful product. So happy we have a great Australian website to purchase great quality raw materials.

  25. (verified owner)

    I switched online stores as I wasn’t too happy with the old one…

    I need to wear medical compression stockings to my knees 24/7. In hotter weather my skin flakes badly and is very dry and can get sore (extremely raw and sore!). Few items seem to work but already I have found this soothing. It absorbs oils easily so I have mixed with castor, Jojoba, some pawpaw and a little honey. Within two days my skin has gone from painful to reasonably soothed. I’m now going to try refrigerating the cream simply because that immediate coolness will remove the heat that pulses from the skin area where the stockings go. Compression stockings can be great but unbelievably drying.

  36. (verified owner)

    Use to make a body butter. Best moisturiser I’ve ever had.

  37. (verified owner)

    Love this product – I beat 1/2 cup Shea butter with 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil + 1/4 tsp essential oil blend (ylang ylang, patchouli, frankincense, clary sage, orange & thyme) for 10 mins with electric beater to make a beautiful moisturiser. Have been doing this for years & love it!

  38. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality. Exactly what I was looking for pure and natural.

  39. (verified owner)

    Love it! ❤️

    During winter my hand cracked really badly, i have tried various hand creams but no use. So i decided to make my own hand mask. So glad I could get everything here! I used Unrefined Shea Butter, combined with Macadamia Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Moroccan Argan Oil as the base, and then added Palmarosa Essential Oil and Frankincense Essential Oil. I put the mask all over my hands and then wear cotton gloves. Sometimes for a couple of hours at night while watching TV, or wear it to sleep overnight. I saw huge improvement just after a few times! It’s only been a week since I used it and I’m very happy with the result! I don’t have to keep putting moisturizer on because they don’t feel dry anymore. I’ll keep using it regularly!

  41. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality, I love it! I use Shea butter in my soap making, -‘d lotions/balms too & I will be ordering from you again soon! Thank you

    I suffer from dermatitis so i wanted to make a natural, nourishing body butter which is free from artificial ingredients. This whipped up into a beautiful, nourishing whipped butter that melts into my skin without any irritation. Thankyou! Fantastic quality at a fantastic price.

  62. (verified owner)

    Am so happy I’ve finally found a reputable supplier of great quality and we’ll priced shea butter in Australia! I’ve been using N Essentials shea for about a month now and can highly reccomend it. I use it straight from the pack as an all-over body and face cream. It is the only thing that keeps my dry skin supple and smooth. I have also used it to make lip balm (with beeswax, almond oil, Vitamin E and essential oil), as well as for cold-pressed soap (with olive, castor and almond oils) and the shea butter has given each of these products a really rich texture. Extremely happy with this product.

  63. this stuff is amazing, using it to make my own natural whipped body butter, really moisturising and beautiful.

  64. (verified owner)

    Very happy with this purchase, well priced & blends well into a body butter. Will be a repeat customer

  65. Love love love!!!
    So moisturising, so gentle when whipped into a moisturiser for whole family. Great and quick delivery, great packaging. Happy customer.

  66. (verified owner)

    After having this product for almost 2 weeks it has been pretty great for my face, but seems to do nothing for the rest of my body. I don’t recommend this if you have really dry skin.

  67. (verified owner)

    Just got my shea butter today and so far, so good. Service was great, got my product a day earlier than what was expected, and just in time too, my skin has been irritating all day and as soon as I put it on it was an instant relief. If this does well for my skin I’m definitely coming back here for more.

  68. Fantastic product. Have returned several times. I use it for a range of products I make.

  69. (verified owner)


  70. This stuff is amazing. I made some whipped shea butter combining this stuff with a couple drops of their ylang ylang EO and a bit of the fractionated coconut oil and it is divine. My skin feels amazing. I’m really impressed. Just glad I got a bigger order than I originally planned because now I have to share with my family and friends.

  71. I ordered some unrefined Shea Butter on a Thursday morning and received it Friday morning….fantastic service! The product looks great and is exactly what I was looking for. Now I just have to decide what to order next.

  72. I have been trying to get hold of unrefined shea butter, in Australia for quite sometime. I stumbled across this website during a Google search, and was pleased when the shea butter arrived looking as expected! Postage was swift and the packaging comes clean and tightly sealed with the n-essentials brand on it. I will be ordering all my butters and oils from this site, going forward.

  73. Love this shea butter, I used it in pretty much everything!

  74. Thank you guys for providing such a good product. It is really good moisturizer. I will definitely keep buying from you guys.

  75. I would like to thank you for such fantastic products and great customer service
    I will always buy from u guys

  76. I used this as a primary ingredient in a skin cream, and it whips up beautifully with carrier and essential oils. A dream to use and very moisturising.

  77. Ive made body bars and lip balms with shea butter i bought from N Essential and i have to say it moisturises my skin beautifully.

  78. I’ve been buying this for a while now and it has been consistently a great product.

    Great Price! Perfect for my DIY Beauty Products.

    Totally Recommend this Product!!!”

  79. I have tried unrefined shea butter from a number of suppliers and this is the best I’ve tried.
    Has a clean nutty aroma, beautiful ivory colour and smooth texture that melts in the hands.

  80. Another awesome product from N-essentials the unrefined organic shea nut butter allows me to make a beautiful face and body moisturiser. I add some coconut oil and a few drops of my favorite essential oil and i’m all soft and smelling fine.

  81. I’m loving this Shea Butter, have made lots of lovely products with it.

  82. I have always loved sheabutter, but this product is just as good as it gets. Organic, unrefined and awesome! A kg almost lasted me a year last time, so have just bought another one for the new year ahead. I use it as suncream, moisturiser and for my baby’s nappy rash. Thank you N-essentials!

  83. (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this product it has multiple uses. I have purchased organic unrefined shea butter from other company’s which are more expensive. The quality of this product is the same. This is the only place I shop now for organic unrefined shea butter.

    Top marks for this one. I have vulvadynia and have been struggling with the pain for nearly 3 years. Cortisone cream was prescribed along with Lignocain 2%. Not very effective and very expensive. butter What a God send this has been. Pain goes within a few minutes, I use it 2-3 times a day. It is better than Nyogyn to which I had a reaction as I have a very sensitive system. I have also had an itchy rash on my leg for years, the itch was being controlled with Cortisone cream. Shea butter stopped the itch very quickly and the rash faded but did not disappear. Any excess can be patted off with a tissue. Have been using Tamanu Oil and it gives the same result. Shea is the best cuticle conditioner I have ever used.

  85. (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this. I have been ordering this since May! I make my own whipped body butter and sell it to costumers. I have gone through 3.5 kg!

  86. (verified owner)

    I love the texture and feel of this particular butter. It whips up an amazing result. So happy with this product. Love, Love, Love it. 🙂

  87. (verified owner)

    This is amazing stuff, I make my own whipped shea butter mixture and use it myself and baby boy, really awesome stuff!

  88. (verified owner)

    It was great! It wasn’t yellow. An off white kind of colour! It mixes into a great body butter! LOVE IT!!!! 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
