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.

    Posted by Julia Alkire on 11th Jul 2015

    I was buying Shea butter elsewhere but had a BA order so I threw in a few jars. It is perfect! Creamy, smooth, exactly what you want. Not to mention the great pricing. No grainy texture at all. It is my go to butter now! Thanks Bulk Apothecary!

  2. Superior product

    Posted by Abigail Adams on 7th Jul 2015

    This, too, I've ordered several times in 7# pail; it is pure and wonderful from the first to the very last spoonful. I use it for making salves and creams, and it never disappoints. This shea butter makes everything better.

  3. Best Price

    Posted by Kate on 26th Jun 2015

    I have been searching for a good unrefined shea butter that will not break the bank. So far this is mot only the best price, but also the best quality. It has the rich shea scent, and goes wonderfully in my shea bars, and whipped body butters. I wouls recommend this to anyone who is need of shea. Bulk has never let me down with any of their products which is impressive. Buy withoit fear.

  4. As expected and an unexpected value!

    Posted by Karen F. on 25th Jun 2015

    I am pleasantly surprised by the quality and the quantity I was able to get from this company. I thought the shea butter would be in block form and wouldn't be exactly 7lbs. I was wrong and gladly so. Thank you for not short-changing your customers!

    I have yet to find a Shea Butter that is creamier and more beautifully presented (in their air-tight, signature brown tubs). Consistently happy with this product - and all the butters BA offers. And you can't beat the price either - bonus!

  9. Best Shea Butter

    Posted by Sofia on 2nd Jun 2015

    This is by far the best shea butter I have tried. Great quality and scent. No more dry skin after a few weeks of using this product. It is also very inexpensive.

  10. virgin organic unrefined shea butter

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jun 2015

    This was my 2nd time purchasing shea butter ever and I went with BA again because I was happy with the last jar.
    My 1st jar was grainy but when using in my recipes I melt it down, sure not to over heat and my end product the beads are gone.
    This time my jars contained smooth soft shea butter =)
