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 certified organic.

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.

  4. Refined Shea Butter 4 star review

    I do like the refined shea butter much better then the unrefined. I like that it has no scent and the coloration of the body butter I make is more of a white coloration as apposed to the unrefined which gives it an off white coloration. I love the feel and consistancy of it as well.

    I bought the naturally refined Shea Butter to make some hard lotion and have been completely happy with my results. This product is very nice to work with - a little crumbly at first, but very effective.

    I've never purchased from Bulkapothecary so I wasn't sure what I would get. I was afraid it was be refined shea butter because it wasn't expensive. I'm impressed. It's the real deal. Great for the face, hair and body. Thank you for living up to your ad and not misleading the public. I will definitely purchase from you again. Oh yeah, it came within a few days and that was during Christmas. And I didn't pay for express shipping. Thanks!
