1lb Raw Yellow Shea Butter



Shea butter has the ability to soothe, hydrate and balance your skin. It is used as a moisturizer for dry skin and eczema, as a dry scalp treatment, for chapped lips and to help soften cracked dry skin on heels, elbows and knees. It is important, according to the American Shea Butter Institute, to make sure unrefined shea butter is used. Raw shea butter maintains its therapeutic qualities and will keep your skin moist and supple, whereas refined, processed shea butter loses almost all of its healing properties. Dr. Robyn Tisdale Scott, a clinical pharmacist, concurs with the American Shea Butter Institute, supporting the claim that unrefined shea butter reverses dry skin in about three days.

Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Shea butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties that have been known to heal scrapes, cuts and burns; relieve sunburn and rashes; take the sting out of insect bites; and ease the pain from muscle fatigue and arthritis. A study published in a 2010 issue of the "Journal of Oleo Science" by Toshihiro Akihisa and colleagues found that shea fat has significant anti-inflammatory properties. The study showed a remarkable reduction of inflammation in mice suffering from edema. After being given shea fat compounds, the inflammation was reduced by over 45 percent. Another study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology by the Department of Pharmacology at the College of Medicine of the University of Lagos concluded that shea butter is an effective nasal decongestant. Participants were given two to four applications of shea butter in the nasal cavity, and within just 12 to 24 hours they showed no signs of inflammation, congestion or nasal damage.


Antiaging Properties

Shea butter has been used for centuries as a wrinkle reducer. Shea butter contains essential fatty acids, along with vitamins A and E, which are imperative to maintaining your skin's elasticity and suppleness. In a clinical study done by Frank Renard, Ph.D., shea butter was found to have significant antiaging properties and was proven to help rebuild and rejuvenate collagen. Participants in this study were given shea butter to use as a balm to massage on their skin for four to eight months. The results showed clearer, brighter skin; less wrinkles; and even less sun damage.

Best shea butter I’ve ever purchased

I’m so impressed by the quality of this shea butter that, from now on, I will only purchase this product from FBO.

Good Stuff!!!

I was able to whip up a great healthy organic Shea Butter concoction to protect my skin for the winter months. So far my face and skin loves it!


I have not received my items yet!

Perfect for Fall and Winter

I haven’t used raw Shea butter in years but I’m glad I purchased this. It’s soft enough to scoop out of the container and you get so much of it for a great price. This is a good and thick moisturizer for skin. Must buy!

1lb Raw Yellow Shea Butter

I recently purchased Shea butter and whipped it. It keeps my skin so soft and glowing. I love it.

Raw yellow Shea butter lotion

I love this lotion it is very moisturizing. I use in the evenings before I go to sleep and my skin is very soft and moisturized for the next day. I love that is unscented due to the fact I use a lot of these perfume oils so that is a plus, it will not mix with your fragrances. I love the size of it, for the amount to you get is so much for a very reasonable price. It will last you so long. Thank you for high-quality product at a very reasonable price.
