Refined Shea Butter Bulk
Our bulk refined Shea Butter is great for cosmetics and soaps. After shea butter is extracted from the Shea nut the natural butter is filtered to remove any impurities, resulting in a creamy off white color and an ultra high quality pure product. The refined shea butter also has less odor, making it shea butter of choice for the soap making and personal care industry. This is definitely one of our best sellers. This product comes from Burkina Faso, Africa.
Virgin Unrefined (certified organic) Shea Butter
Our Virgin Unrefined African Shea Butter is extracted from the Shea nut and left completely unrefined. Because of the lack of refinement, Bulk African Shea Butter has a pale yellowish color and has the typical odor normally associated with Shea Butter. This shea butter comes from Burkina Faso, Africa and is free trade certified along with certified organic.
At Bulk Apothecary we offer high-quality Shea Butter at amazing prices. We have always been able to offer incredible prices on our products we sell in our store because we sell our own, quality products directly to the customer.
Shea Butter Benefits
Pure Sea Butter first became popular in Africa where it is widely used in cooking and medicinal purposes. Eventually it made its way to the west as more people discovered its amazing emollient qualities. Shea Butter has a high level of non-saponifiables and other qualities that makes it a popular ingredient in many cosmetic supplies, lotions, and other skin care products.
Shea Butter can improve skin elasticity, which has made it popular with both men and women. Today it is used as an essential ingredient for belly butters and stretch mark creams.
More than that, though, Shea Butter can also block the sun’s ultraviolet rays, so you will often find it as a major ingredient in sun block products, lip balms, and lip gloss. It can also be used as an anti-inflammatory and humectants which makes it very useful in medicinal ointments and creams.
Types of Shea Butter
At Bulk Apothecary we offer a couple different kinds of Shea Butter to fit your exact needs.
Refined Shea Butter – Our bulk refined Shea Butter is most often used for cosmetics and soaps. The process to refine the butter involves extracting it from the Shea nut and filtering out any of the impurities. This results in a creamy off-white color and an extremely pure product. There is also less of an odor, which is why refined butter is the normal choice for the soap making and personal care industry.
Unrefined Shea Butter – We also sell butter that is left unrefined. This gives it a pale yellowish color and has the typical odor normally associated with Shea Butter.

I have been using this butter for my products for several months, I have tried others, bu they do not compare. This is by far the best. Great service at Bulk Apothecary too!

This butter is a must for any luxury bar of soap. I rub pure into my hands while I am measuring, and what a smooth treatment. Very pure and easy to reseal and store.

On a whim I thought I'd try to make my own Shea product for hair/skin since the additives in some commercial products have left me very unhappy. I will never go back to commercial brands now that I've found Bulk Apothecary. The Shea I received was such great quality and no funky smell. The packaging is very nice dark color that preserves the quality of the contents inside. I really appreciate this as I know oxidation can affect so many products, making them unappealing. So glad this was not the case. I will be a repeat customer and pass the word along to my friends/family.

I love my produce because it makes my skin feels extra soft. It also keeps my skin moisterized too. I will buy more in the future. The redefined Shea Butter is very soft and creamy; it makes it easier to rub on your skin. My children also love it too.

I bought this product and for the price is great I pay for another one only 4oz and I pay 40.00 and smells a cocoa great deal for the price...

This is a great product at a great price. I recently made my own sunblock and this was one of the ingredients in the recipe. I looked at the natural health stores nearby and they had products that if pure were much more expensive but many of the reasonably priced ones were not pure shea butter.
Thank you for a pure product at a great price:)

It has a light scent, and is extremely creamy. Not runny and a great consistency.
