Product Description

Bulk Shea Butter Directly From The Manufacturer


white refined shea butter


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 fair trade certified along with 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.

  1. Best quality and value

    Posted by Josett on 28th Sep 2015

    I have used this in a multitude of recipes all with wonderfully consistent results. Before finding BA's Naturally Refined Shea Butter I tried other popular brand's that were more expensive and the quality was comparable but not worth the extra price! Great Product, I highly recommend!

  2. Super Shea Butter

    Posted by Linda Karppe on 25th Sep 2015

    I've purchased this item before in a smaller quantity, to test it out. I LOVE IT. This time I ordered the BIG bucket. My feet are like satin. Nothing else has ever compared to this product.

  3. Excellent Quality

    great quality and early delivery

  4. Best quality

    Posted by marsha on 19th Sep 2015

    I always find the best quality and the best prices from Bulk Apothecary; I have bought shea butter from other vendors that had a tainted smell.

  5. Shea Butter is Perfect!

    Posted by Coleen on 18th Sep 2015

    I haven't bought Shea Butter from anywhere else, and I never will. I found a great product at a great cost at Bulk Apothecary, and I will never even look elsewhere. Don't mess with perfection.

  6. Shea Butter

    Posted by Diane H. on 17th Sep 2015

    I've tried Shea products from other vendors and have found that your product is awesome for the price, quality and quantity. Always pure with no shell remnants. Consistent, which is important when making products for purchase.

  7. Quality Product at a Great Price!

    Posted by Jenna on 12th Sep 2015

    I ordered the 55 lb. block of the Virgin Unrefined Organic Shea Butter for my customers. They love the product. If you are going to purchase the 55 lb. block, I recommend keeping it as cool as pissible, to make splitting it up easier since Shea Butter melts on skin contact.

  8. The Best

    Posted by HJHamilton on 1st Sep 2015

    I boiled/sterilized 10 - 1 qt. glass Ball canning jars for my 7 lbs. bucket of Shea Butter, turned off the stove and dropped the bucket of Shea Butter in the hot water. As the Shea Butter melted I filled each canning jar, one by one, and immediately placed them in the freezer. Now that my Shea Butter is good and solid from being in the freezer, I now have my 10 jars of Shea Butter in my refrigerator awaiting for me to smother all over my body for the next year.

  9. Awesome!

    Posted by Tami on 29th Aug 2015

    Just made body lotion and face cream. Wonderful! Shea butter is the best, and better this way because you know it's pure, and no chemicals added. You add what you want. I bought the organic unrefined, and will buy again.

  10. LOVE!

    Posted by JanB on 29th Aug 2015

    I use this in my solid cream deodorant and my lotion bars. Much easier to use than cocoa butter, and a great end product. This is also the best price I found!
