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.
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.

Shipping time was excellent, customer service amazing, and above all the product was high quality. Normally I hate the smell of Shea butter this smells excellent I can wait to make my hair/body butter with it. I'll be ordering from BA only no other cause I've done my research no ones has lower prices and if they do it's not real Shea butter. #beyondhappy

This is the first raw shea butter I have used, and I don't forsee myself buying it anywhere else. It is smooth, clean and easy to use. Melts well in body butters, lotions and soaps. I can certainly tell a difference in products that I have added this shea butter to, compared to before I added it. Thanks B.A. for a wonderful product!

Love it! Creamy texture, makes great belly butter for reducing stretch marks!

I am very impress with this product. I bought shea butter from a vendor before and it had a high yellow color and was extremely greasy, thick, and the scent was strong. I took a chance by purchasing the refined shea butter from here and oh I love it. It mixes so well with my essential oils and because it does not have a strong scent, you can really smell the oils. Love this!

I have been using this butter for my products for several months, I have tried others, bu they do not compare. This is by far the best. Great service at Bulk Apothecary too!
