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.
Unrefined Shea Butter
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.
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 purchasing from Bulk Apothecary for a few months now, and I have never had a problem. My last tub of shea butter arrived with a cracked lid and was oozing out all over the inside of the packaging. I made a call to the customer service center, and I only got one or two sentences out before the woman kindly apologized and told me that there was another one being sent out that day to replace it. That was it. No higher ups. No paperwork. No messing around with returning the damaged one. I was instantly in love with this site because of the high quality products at affordable prices, but now the customer service has me locked in for life!

I have purchased Shea butter at local health food stores, and while they said "refined" on the tub, it still had a weird smell and was gritty in my body butters. I love this shea because it is unscented, so I don't have to use extra essential oils to cover the smell, and it is so smooth. Never gritty. It was one of the first things I ever ordered off of this site, and I've been hooked on this site and the high quality of the products ever since!

I'm new to soap making and I love the shea butter! It works really well in soap and as a lotion!

We bought lots of stuff from this site. But their Shea butter made me leave this comment. Not only the price surprised me but the quality of this product as well. Highly recommend this butter. Smells awesome, very hard, clean, smooth; easily melts on your warm face or hands.

I've used this in my CP soap recently and it has turned out some of the best batches I've made yet. Thanks for a quality, affordable product. I'm a huge fan of BA. Thanks!

Love the Sweet Shea Sensation in all my creamy cremes! Bulk Apothecary is my go-to for high quality products. I'm so glad I got the 8lb tub of Shea, Cocoa & Mango butters that make my family's skin glow & hair shine with protective, conditioning moisture. My hubby & 6 children use some form of the healthy emollient formula's I make daily. Bulk A has the best deal hands down on quality and price!

This is a great product and at a great price. My order arrived quickly. I will definitely order this again from Bulk Apothecary.

55lb block was nice and uniform, not at all grainy... pleasant odor without even a trace of that nasty, oxidized, rancid oil smell.
An absolutely premium product and a great price!

I have found my new all around Love!! LOL this shea is the best I have found, I have used the unrefined and love that as much as this one some the others that I have found are too grainy I would love you all even more if I could get the unrefined as well because I have used them both now & between the price & quality I know it would also receive rave reviews from your customers I am also one of the ones that wish that I should have ordered more that just the 1lb
