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.

    I am very pleased with this shea butter. It was easy to get out of the container- almost a whipped feel to it. It melted down beautifully.

  2. The BEST! 5 star review

    Posted by on

    This Shea melts smooth and odorless. By far the best that Ive tried and the only one that I've used since. My creamy whipped shea butter is a best seller. This makes your skin smooth and improves overall skin health. I am pleased and my customers are hooked!

  3. Perfect! 5 star review

    I ordered organic virgin unrefined and paid for extra shipping. It came the next morning! Easy to use. I specifically bought it to use on my fresh tattoo because coconut oil was absorbed too quickly and once it was absorbed it made my skin feel dry. This shea butter was heavy enough to where I didn't have to constantly reapply and my skin never feels greasy. Even after the area where my tattoo is absorbed the shea butter my skin felt soft and moisturized. I will definitely keep buying. Best value for what I got!

  4. Fantastic! 5 star review

    I adore shea butter, and this stuff does not disappoint. I use it to make body butter and deodorant primarily, and it is a pleasure to work with and feels absolutely divine.

  5. A lot of butter for your buck 5 star review

    Posted by on

    &lbs of shea butter may not sound like a lot, but when take into account that you use about 1/2 cup for most recipes to make topical solution for psoriasis that 7lbs goes a long way, and the price is very low. Great delivery, I got mine two days after placing the order, that's phenomenal! I use essential oils in the mix and wow, took care of my breakout, like now!

  10. Shea butter 5 star review

    Posted by on

    WOW, I gave my cocoa butter a really good review, but I can't say enough positive things about this Shea butter. It's sooo not as oily as Cocoa butter and is very fast absorbing. I just know i'm going to make a very high quality body from combining it with others. Thanks for the speedy and well packaged bulk butter's. I feel like I've died and went to butter heaven!!!
