This Unrefined Shea Butter is 100% natural and is produced from the nuts of the Shea tree (Karite). This tree is commonly found in parts of Western and Central Africa including: Ghana, Mali, and Burkina Faso. The main varieties include: Vitellaria paradoxa and Vitellaria nilotica. The cream-colored butter offers an exceptionally light, smoky aroma and retains pure and unrefined properties.
Super-rich in Vitamin A, E and F, creamy shea butter melts into the skin and wraps the body with a delightful softness and earthy-nutty scent. Our Unrefined Shea Butter contains no chemicals, preservatives, or additives. Slather away--and allow the soft butter of Mother Nature to comfort your body and hair with a luxurious finish.
Unrefined Shea Butter offers a long shelf life of 12 to 24 months if it is properly stored in a cool, dry environment.

Real Review.... I will have to say I WASN'T impressed !! I ordered on black friday 2016 and it didn't smell like the nutty shea butter smell. It smelt burnt. while I applied to my skin it sat there so it made me think it's other ingredients added it did not absorb into my skin like REAL SHEA BUTTER does sticking to amazon bc coastal scents is fucking wrong for lying about a product ! However... love the black soap
Big Bang for your buck!
This is the best butter for deep tissue bodywork, and it's the only thing I'll use. It has enough viscosity to do deep tissue bodywork, but it's not greasy . I highly recommend it!
Changed my mind...
Changed my mind about ordering after reading about your deceptive practices from quite a few people. No thanks! If you could deceive people by ripping them off, you could deceive in other ways such as subpar products, or products that aren't good for us.
Shea butter purchase
I have been a customer for several purchasing several pounds of raw Shea butter. For this shipment I noticed that the packages were smaller than those I've received in the past. I weighed the four 5-lb. bags and to my dismay they varied in weight from 4 lb 11.3 oz to 4 lb 13.6 oz. None of them weighed 5 lbs although I ordered 5 lb bags. I am receiving far less than I am paying for. I would appreciate someone getting back to me about this matter.
unrefined shea butter, two five-pound packages
Excellent product, have used it for years. However, the overall package was listed at less than 10 lbs including packaging, which means you are advertising five-pound packages but actually sending less. Clearly some dishonesty in advertising here which does not speak well of Coastal Scents.
